This Bloomsday poster series was envisioned as a single image spread out over four years. All four posters were laid out in advance in 2017, with the only design choices left being the overall color.
Each year I work to refine the runners (and make a few changes here and there). Having the overall layout finished allows me to focus on painting each runner to convey depth and light.
Currently two of the four posters are complete (duh!). Work will begin on the 2019 poster sometime in the fall of 2018, or sooner if I get antsy.
