    Benjamin Keeps Watch

    When I went to Franklin Square, the water tower really stood out. The haiku is also based on the coffee shop there, so I wanted to combine the two images. I finally came up with the idea of having the water tower be a coffee cup and incorporating the style of the buildings in the square. When I went to the square it was winter. I imagined what it would be like with all the blooming flowers, like it is in Syracuse in the spring. I love doodling flower-type, decorative things, so I was very comfortable coming up with different ways to represent flowers and nature. In my poster, you can see the doodles, but in a more sophisticated way. My goal was to make people want to go to that square, have a cup of coffee and look up at the nature.
