iheART NYC: TRISTAN EATON for TRIBAL DDB

Polymorphic octopus-hummingbird-gazelle creature to celebrate Tribal DDB's triumphant 10 years in business by Tristan Easton. Inspiring stuff. Check out more of his work on www.tristaneaton.net
DD Beast from THUNDERDOG STUDIOS on Vimeo.

In Tristan's word, "Paying homage to the late illustrator Frank Frazetta, I decided to anthropomorphize the accomplishments and abilities of the agency into a majestic, mythical beast ascending an ever-growing branch of time and challenge. A notch in the tree reveals 10 rings / years of growth. The painting was executed on 49 square panels of birch formed into a grid reminiscent of the Tribal DDB logo. The imagery was created using wheat pasted paper, spray paint, acrylic paint and ink. I also created a signed and numbered limited edition poster for all Tribal DDB employees. The poster serves as a crest to represent this mythical beast and its triumphant journey. The treatment of graphics are reminiscent of a timeless coat of arms used for shields in battle and for pride of legacy."
