Last week i was in new york for Behance's annual 99% Conference, an event that brings together some of today's sharpest minds to discuss how ideas become reality. I was commissioned to document/draw the conference and use the resulting text and images to create a story and a mount an exhibit at The Ace Hotel in new york. The show is up at the Ace till June 6, so if you are in new york check it out. and you can see the story here.
the whole thing was done in 9 days. 2 days to draw/document, 2 days to paint and scan, 3 days to install and 2 days to make the story.
here's what my hotel room looked like when i was creating work for the show:
here's what the show looks like:
"Guts, Grit and Getting *&!# Done"
An illustrated inventory of Making Ideas Happen from illustrator wendy macnaughton based on her observations, insights and takeaways from Behance's annual 99% conference.
(including quotes, tweets and eavesdroppings from conference speakers and attendees.)
over the doorway - "the world is waiting for your gift. give it to them with both barrels."
and again, you can see the story here.
Also, here is a little interview i did with 99%'s super duper director, Jocelyn Glei.
