In Cody Townsend’s new video series ‘THE FIFTY’, he aims to spend the next 3 years tackling every single line from the quintessential book, ‘Fifty Classic Descents of North America’, compiled by Chris Davenport, Penn Newhard and Art Burrows.
In Cody’s words: “All of them have at least one historical descent, but one person has not skied them all. Over the course of the next three years, I will attempt to ski every line as told in the book and will document the adventure, the challenge and the fun in the web series,”
I was happy to work closely with Cody to develop and illustrate this identity for his impressive personal project. I created the final piece old school style on the light box, drawing the title and the peaks and then using 4 more separate sheets of paper for the 3 layers of highlights and shadows.
