This project was done for my Vector Illustration class at the Rocky Mountian College of Art and Design.
The objective was to create a hypothetical currency for one of the neighboorhoods here in Denver. The currency was to represent the history of the neighborhood. I included General William Larimer because he founded the the firsht neighboorhood in this city known as "Lodo" or Lower Downtown. The back of the currency features a more subtle message that is laid out to represent the Arapaho Tribe's Flag. The tribe was unfortunately slain in the area over gold prospects and power over the land. As much as I love our city and it's rich history I think it is important to maintain an awarnesss of the greed that has driven us to violence over the years. Thanks for viewing.
