Dolly Rogers poster

I recently had the opportunity to help out a Capital City Derby Dolls team, the Dolly Rogers, with their team logo and first bout poster. I always enjoy working on derby-style illustrations, and am over the moon with how the poster turned out. I was able to attend the bout this past Saturday, and the Dolly Rogers hosted a fantastic game against Kingston’s Limestone Crushers. I began with a sketch of the character I wanted in blue col-erase, scanned it, and brought it into illustrator for inking. I converted the strokes so I could live paint fills, and then worked up the poster layout using the character and her colour scheme as a starting point. I’ve been heavily inclined toward polka dots lately, and i like the touch of whimsy they add to the poster.
