Fail and celebrate!
Some weeks ago a respected European newspaper commissioned me to create an illustration for a front page article about failure. The brief was asking for a happy joyful version of failure featuring fireworks and rockets like the ones we use on new years eve. I really liked this project and this is what I have created.
Unfortunately the editors decided to go with another option. So this was my last failure for 2013. Joyful, colorful even if there is always a bitter taste when your work is rejected. But I have learned to love my failures. These are making me stronger and wiser. Happy new year everyone!

Best viewed large. Attention: Big file. (12420 x 16304 pixels = 41.4" x 54.3" @ 300 ppi)
Alternately you can zoom in to the high res (202 megapixels) file with Microsoft ZoomIt.

Made with custom developed scripts, hacks and lots of love, using my Mac, Studio Artist, the Adobe Creative Suite and good music.

Many thanks to my clients for our successes and our failures.
