Ward Village

Ward Village puts out a quarterly lifestyle publication called the Forward Journal. For their most recent edition, I was interviewed about my life on island, my inspiration, and what I have in mind for the future. But they also asked me to create some illustrations for the cover and a few interior pages. 

For the cover, I thought a montage of all of the different activities in Ward would be fun and capture the feel and spirit of the area. 

I reflected on what I would see on a day-to-day basis walking through Ward. It might be a surfer strolling to Ala Moana Beach Park, parents out and about with children, business people on their way to work and meetings. The iconic IBM building makes a subtle-but-familiar appearance in the repetitive pattern of its facade. It's a great collection of folks from different walks of life carrying on their day to day in Hawai'i.
