Quino Checkerspot Butterfly
By Lauren Osoba
I draw inspiration from nature in my work, which is one of the reasons I was excited to create a poster for Series 3: Alphabeast! Order can be found in nature on a small and large scale, and as humans we often disrupt this order. I mimicked the order found in nature within the poster design, using principles such as balance and repetition. My animal, the Quino checkerspot butterfly, has been classified as endangered due to loss of habitat caused by urban development. For this reason, I chose to emphasize the importance of the butterflies' habitat by enveloping it in colorful flowers. I enjoyed learning about the Quino checkerspot butterfly throughout this process and hope my poster design will draw attention to its plight.
