Badlands are
Cool Lands.

Of all the unique characteristics that make Canada one of the coolest places around the world, the Alberta Badlands are by far one of the coolest. From Tyrell's first dinosaur fossil discovery in 1884, to standing on the top of the tallest hoo-doo, theres never a dull moment when you visit this fascinating land.

Target Audience

  • Visitors to Alberta or the Tyrell Museum.

  • Those who love the Badlands.

  • Geologists and palaeontologists.

Overview

This poster was created for my Illustration Fundamentals class, where we had to illustrate the name of a chosen landscape into its features. The Alberta Badlands have have always been home to me 
as I would often find myself in the backyard of my grandparents farm, looking for fossils and petrified wood that have seeped to the surface over millions of years, exposing the hidden history behind the world as we know it today.

Color

This is a colour version of my poster that features the depth of the coulees and hoodoos while showcasing the dry sedimentary and clay-like colours of these exposing wondrous landforms.

Topographical

This is the original concept for my Badlands project, as I portrayed the features of the hoo-doos in the style  of a topographical map, experimenting with the use of colour and line weight in order to contrast the name of the landscape from the background.
