Amecon 2004

http://www.amecon.org

I produced various pieces of CG artwork for the anime and manga convention called Amecon 2004 that was held on the 20th-22nd August in Leicester.
The work I volunteered to do includes a double-sided A5 flyer promoting the event, a set of 5 member badges each with a different artwork design and finally an illustration created specifically for the cover of the event's 'conbook'. All artwork created was my own original rendition of the Amecon mascot, Ame-chan.
