Last week I criticized the London 2012 Olympics Swimming poster - Here is my version in response!
If I am going to criticize the work of another artist than I have to 'throw my hat into the ring' and see if I can submit a better version.
The premise of the poster was to resonate swimming. Howard Hodgkin chose blue, thrashing, brush strokes to resonate the ferocity of our sport. I chose to graphically illustrate the objective.
I gave myself one-hour to come up with completed concept poster design: I lost; took 1-hour-10-minutes.
Above is my version; below is the official London 2012 Version.
Flame away, I am open to constructive criticisms and well crafted insults.
