I changed the faces and blacked out the last names for the purposes of maintaining the anonymity of the event participants.
Hey, they might be gluttons, but they’re people too…
My brother has been involved in competitive eating with some of his coworkers as of late, and this time around he requested that I make a promotional poster for the event.
I was more than happy to oblige.
Anyway, it ended up a little more “extreme” than I had originally intended, (my first impulse was to go with the 1930’s boxing poster look) but given the inherent goofiness of the event, I think it works.
I guess you could say it has a biker bar/UFC kind of aesthetic to it.
I know, “yuck.”
Either way, I think it works, and I certainly put enough time into to it, so I think I’m pleased with it.
Now, all I can do is hope and pray that my brother doesn’t bring shame to the family by losing!
