Discgolfing Competition
Posted 11 months ago and submitted by Edward van Walsum | Share link: http://illo.cc/87915

Recently someone approached me for a somewhat unconventional commission.

My client wanted a bright illustration that could be printed onto a discgolfing disc and that disc would become the first prize for their friendly discgolfing competition. The illustration had to have certain colours that will stand out, so that it can be easily found when it gets lost in the bushes.

So I had great fun making this. We settled on the design of a macaque monkey looking at the disc with a pensive look and I’m happy with how the illustration turned out. I would’ve loved to work this out further but I eventually ran out of time.

The images show the final artwork, plus some of the sketches.

"I came to Edward van Walsum with a request for some art that would be going on a custom disc. He was very professional in negotiating and we ended up striking a deal that I hope we both found equitable. He hit his deadlines and went beyond the original scope of the project from my understanding of the agreement. I am very thankful for his efforts.
