Compass of Desire Festival 2009

This year's Compass festival theme is desire. The festival will cover the many facets of desire in a broad range of media and gets bigger and more exciting each year. The illustration above will be the front (right-hand side) and back (left-hand side) cover for the programme. I needed to make sure that the illustrations were culturally accessible because the festival looks at each theme from the perspective of other countries. The front cover conveys the positive connotations of desire whilst the back cover delves into the darker, negative side. 

Below is the original illustration for the programme which wasn't suitable because it focuses too strongly on Adam and Eve therefore implying a christian theme when the festival incorporates a vast variety of religions and cultures. I do however quite like it and thought it would be a shame for the cover to never see the light of day, so here it is for your viewing pleasure.
It will also be the first year that the new Compass logo will be used. I posted it on this blog a little while back but here it is again if you missed it.
