Critique Room #1 Matt Maldre '97 Illustrations Nov 09, 1998

<I'm doing a bunch of illustrations of Chicago for a promotional
<calendar at work. I would appreciate any comments.

This calendar will be sent out to our clients. It has a bunch of idea-starters and reminders for many different promotional needs. One of them is a "Chicago Hot Tip" for every month. The illustrations will be approximately 3" x 3". I was told to illustrate them so they would be more like logos than illustrations (just visual logos, no words).

The calendar will be two-color (black and green). I still have to add the green.

I would greatly appreciate your comments. I like my comments rough and raw, so bring it on daddy-o!
