I was asked to design the market money for the latest Auckland Fair. After a few false starts I settled on a dense jungle image, the Fair is somewhat like a jungle but instead of there being a huge variety of plants and animals there is a huge variety of arts and crafts on offer.
The initial image was in indian ink.
Which I then digitally coloured for the $5 and $10 versions.
The organiser added the circle to my design as she thought that the denomination wasn't obvious enough. Or maybe it was so I wouldn't print out my own to cash in - license to print money!
