Prizewinning posters for the Irish League of Credit Unions
Over the years, I've entered the League of Credit Unions National Poster Competition a few times, and won it a few times. These are some of the winning ones.

None of them are great, but I occasionally got close to the picture I intended to draw.

As usual for me, these are all done using basic art materials - biro, markers, colouring pencils and crayons. My kids always resented me swiping their stuff.
The last picture is from the second year I entered. I can' t remember how far it got - it's pretty raw, but I've included it for old time's sake. The top picture is one of the most recent, and I do remember it got through the local level, but that's where it stopped. It's way too cluttered, but I had a lot of fun drawing the jogging hamster in the wheel.

haven't entered the past few years - too lazy or too busy.

Lettering is the fun part of this stuff - I sometimes just work completely freehand, but for these I took a bit of time and did a bit of layout - particularly for the top one.

Thanks for the nice words.

This Rocks! 

Wow- the Credit Unions poster at the top is pretty awesome!
I especially like the way you did the can-make-it-happen-line.
Reminds me of those wonderful LP-cover artwork...
