One day I had a thought, how do sports people carry about a javelin? Could they take it on a bus? Would it fit in a car? this led me to thinking of other sports equipment that could cause difficulties for the people that use them. As a personal project I started researching some of them, and produced a series of three that interested me the most- archery, javelin and pole vault.
I imagined them being in a Children’s non fiction book, and set myself the challenge of having some colour in the background, but trying to make it in to a graphic shape. I liked being able to work the lettering around the image, and tried to make the lettering quite interesting to look at. I picked facts that I found interesting and found ways to split these up e.g the arrows below.
I have more that I am planning on looking at..
