Funka Fest 2019

Similar to 2018, this work is to promote and highlight components of Funka Fest, Ecuador’s largest music and arts festival.
The theme of 2019 was the meeting of urban and rural, nature and mankind, in the setting of Ecuador’s three major “regions”. As one of the most racially and biologically diverse countries on the planet, it was a unique challenge to portray the Sierra (mountains), Costa (coast), and Amazonia (Amazon). Using Funka Fest’s trademark “funky” colors, I incorporated elements of wildlife, landforms, and architecture for each in 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional assets. Animation brings the creatures and plants to life.
