Anime USA 2012 Flyer by kevinbolk Anime USA 2012 Flyer by kevinbolk
The flyer that goes with the mascot costume design I created for DC convention Anime USA. The theme this year is Carnivale Fantasia. This flyer will be given away at their table at Katsucon next weekend.

Check out her full design here:


And the art for last year's theme "Honor & Duty":

In addition to the cute character you created, I love the colours, fonts and the overall old-time circus poster theme in this piece!

And I didn't think you could possibly top last year's! I can't wait to see Camille in this, hahaha.

I seriously love your mascot for anime USA, I would love to cosplay her, but I feel it would be inappropriate to cosplay her outside of the anime USA convention, which I'll probably never go to since I don't live near it. :/

That is perfect. It really looks like those old time posters, what with all of the alliteration. Love it. Great job, once again.

I like the use of alliterations. They make the flyer a lot more fun to read. I also learned a new word: resplendent. :)

I'm probably being annoying (and someone may have already pointed it out) but there's an extra 'n' in the word amusement at the bottom.

No worries ;)

Might be a bit off topic, but I once asked you which one of your comics you would suggest me to read.
I then read the whole Mascot series from the beginning and though I'm German I can still relate to many of your stories since I've been to Baltimore once.

Very entertaining :D

Fantastic piece Kev. Detail is great. It reminds me a lot of the inspiration for The Beatles' For The Benefit of Mr. Kite. Easily one of my favorite songs.
But that's beside the point.

Very clever idea. The aged version is cool, but I think this one would be a better choice.

As a graphic Design student, I will be one of the first to say I love the layout of this flyer. The composition is very good, the text is legible and the colors don't clash horribly with one another. I enjoy this a lot, and even though I don't think I'll be able to make it to Anime USA, this is very much a favorite
