1916-Rising-Women-On-Bicycles---Jennifer-Farley

To commemorate the role of women in the 1916 Rising, Fingal County Council commissioned me to create a set of illustrations and designs to promote their event called RothaÍocht na mBan (Women on Bicycles). A variety of women from different social classes played a huge role in the Rising but have often been forgotten. As well as the illustrated characters, I designed a 3 metre banner which was carried by women in period costume in a parade. I designed a tri-fold brochure, a set of posters and flyers and a set of newspaper advertisements.

I absolutely love working on historical character illustrations and this one was great fun. Here you can see some of the promotional materials and the illustrations.
