Designed for the 2002 Tallahassee Orchid Show, themed "Star Spangled
Orchids". The graphic for this poster was designed in a variety of
software packages. First, numerous images of red, white, and blue
orchids were masked out of photographs and converted into a series of image
hoses. These were then sprayed onto a texture map of the American
flag. This map was then applied to a deformed mesh in LightWave 3d
and rendered as a background element. A number of orchid flower photographs
(including a 3d digital rendering of an Angraecum orchid) were digitally
repainted in Fractal Design Painter as digital watercolors and then composited
together with the flag into the final graphic. 3d rendered text with
the flag graphic as a texture was also composited into the poster graphic.
Final text layout for the poster was done in CorelDRAW. This poster
was very well received by members of the society and the general public.
