Air Canada - Dragon / by Shingo Shimizu

Commissioned to produce a dragon that would be flamboyant and very friendly, to be part of an Air Canada campaign to promote flights to China. The dragon was seen a quite a lot in Vancouver: on buses, transit shelters, train stations and even the grocery divider sticks (at the supermarket... what are they called?).

This dragon was delivered all in vector. It was definitely tough but doable. I finally used the 'symbols' feature in Adobe Illustrator to save time, memory, and my sanity!
