Originally, we did this illustration for Canadian Pacific Railway as part of a series for the 150 Canadian anniversary. The sketch for this idea was not accepted, but we liked it, and so completed the poster adding the Union Illustration Co. Logo on the side of the train instead.
Our vision for these posters was to harken back to the old style of artwork used by the Canadian Pacific to advertise the amazing landscape that Canada has to offer.
Since Union Illustration is right next to the Canadian Rockies, we thought it was the best scene to show. We might be a little biased.
Sometimes at Union, we become fans of each other’s work and finish up projects we really wanted to see come alive. A poster like this is one of those cases.
