Emily Watanabe
I am an illustrator who was born in Japan, lives in Oregon, and studies in New York. I enjoy working intuitively, with very little conscious thought. I will do several thumbnails based on what pops into my head, select the best sketch, and work in whatever style (and medium) I feel suits a particular piece or subject.

I selected this haiku because I was intrigued by the concept of fun, colorful fair imagery. The poster is not meant to “focus” within an environment so much as to “accent” whatever surrounds it.

As a young artist, I have not yet “grown into” a specific style. With this poster, I was inspired by textile designers who use a multitude of images to create a complex and pattern-like image.

Around, up and down
Thrills and chills on the midway.
Life's fun at the Fair.
