The ape above was illustrated by the lovely Lydia Perez in 2012 (as you can see) as a backpack design for the Sprayground Contest. In case you hadn’t heard, the Sprayground Contest involves putting a backpack (preferably one you’ve designed) on a government statue, snapping a picture and sending it in to Sprayground. We think this is a cool, tongue-in-cheek-way to create content, and we’re ever so grateful to Sprayground for bringing talented young illustrators like Lydia to our attention.
Lydia has worked at Ogilvy & Mather in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic, and hails from there originally, which is something you can definitely see in her warm, bright work. Take a look at her behance page here.
