Global Art Gathering Poster idea

..aaannnnnnd back to Bootcamp 2015! our April assignment was a combination contest and assignment: design a poster for Lilla Roger's 1st ever Global Art Gathering at the Brighton Dome in Brighton, England. We were given the theme and some inspirational pixs of England to get our creative juices flowing. I sketched out various ideas to show a group getting together but i came back to the idea of gathered under one umbrella..... 11083857_10202970162369679_8250844848284622256_n
