One of the goals for my Girl Scout Gold Award project is to create 18 educational graphic panels to be printed out on high quality materials and set up along the three birding trails that I have envisioned.
So far, I have created 11 out of these 18 panels! These 11 panels focus on different types of birds that can be seen around the trails, which are located in Mt. Vernon, Texas. I am planning to create 7 more, which I will likely complete over the summer.
In each of these panels, I have drawn every picture by hand, then uploaded it into the computer to convert into a vector graphic. I researched each of these birds to create the text in each of the panels. These panels are in the color scheme of the Pure Hope Foundation, and with the help of my friends and family, I was able to design them to be beautiful.
As I created these panels, I was able to learn more about the process, seeing what worked and what did not. As I got better and better, I was able to improve my process to create higher quality artwork more and more efficiently.
