Taipei Subway (MRT) Poster Contest

Even though this news is a few weeks old, I'm happy to say my entry for the Taipei MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) poster contest was a winning finalist. The contest was to illustrate one of eight different rules of subway courtesy or safety (ex. giving up your seat to the elderly, refraining from smoking or eating, etc.) with the only parameters being a size requirement. I worked on the "using cel phones tactfully" category because it's a personal peeve of mine. Using animals prevalent in Asian folklore I tried to make an image that appealed to the masses, yet didn't appear overtly preachy in tone.

Having been born in Taipei, Taiwan it's fun to be able to now have my art go on display there.
