I was commissioned to create some illustrations and design the posters, outdoor corriboard signage and DL-sized leaflet to promote Howth Bioblitz. Ireland’s BioBlitz brings together scientists and recorders in a race against time to see how many species can be recorded in a 24-hour biological survey of four of Ireland’s heritage sites. I am naturally drawn to anything water-based so I was delighted to be let loose with the illustrations and made an underwater scene featuring some big and small beasties, some friendly seals, an old shipwreck and a couple of worried looking divers. The “on land” part of the poster features some creatures that kids and adults will be looking out for during the Bioblitz including butterflies, snails, the red squirrel, goats, and bats. These designs were aimed at families and children, rather than the professional scientists. Here are the completed corriboard (2 metres x 1 metre in size),  leaflets and posters.
