Sustainable Chicago Public Vote Poster Competition Michelle Kogan


I’m Looking for your public vote for my poster design that was 1 of 20 selected for the Sustainable Chicago Poster Competition. This vote is for the people’s choice, and my poster is number 41. Here’s the link: 

My entry is from two of my watercolor paintings that I combined in Photoshop and did a bit of adjusting on, then added the type. The image features three endangered birds  from Illinois, the Short eared owl, Henslow’s  sparrow and the Eastern meadow lark. It’s my vision of a wildlife sanctuary taking root by Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive.

Public voting is through Monday April 21st. The posters will appear in Bus Shelters in Chicago.  

Many Thanks!
