Tampa Bay Business Journal Book of Lists 2016-17 Cover Artwork
Tampa Bay Business Journal held a cover artwork competition, asking artists to submit art for the 2016-17 Book of Lists. The Book of Lists is a directory of over 2,000 local companies and 1,700 business leaders – which reaches around 10,000 people with their printed book. My artwork was selected for the cover, with a submission of over 100 other artist entries.
I wanted to create a cover that captures the beautiful natural surroundings of Tampa, and also to show the iconic local spots – such as the intricate tile of Columbia Restaurant. I created the artwork using collages of original watercolor, and focused on the bright and bold colors of the flora, wildlife and beaches around Tampa Bay.
