Poster Illustration: Fandom as Religious Experience

I just finished my last illustration for an event hosted by the lecture series that I co-chair. I was happy that the event was a fun topic because some of the weightier political themes we’ve explored lately just aren’t as uplifting to research. The idea of fandom as a religious experience will be an entertaining and educational subject for our last spring term lecture.

After working with the speaker, Lauren Cooper, the following image was created based on a similar tattoo obtained by her sister. The illustration was one of the easiest I’ve created for the series because it was simple and straight forward and I sort of saw it in my head the moment Lauren referenced the topic of fan tattoos.

A video of me painting the knit fabric can be viewed on my Instagram account (@mlevacy).

The final poster illustration turned out quite nice. You can read more about this awesome event if you’re interested and in the Atlanta area on Thursday, March 30.
