I wanted to create a pig that was popular among children and families, using bright whimsical colors. I also wanted to highlight the town's history, such as the historic courthouse and its pillories, as well as the artistic culture of the town of Smithfield. Smithfield contains a number of galleries, as well as a theatre and other artistic venues. I also wanted to incorporate the marshes of the surrounding area. They are all referenced in my design. Below are photos of the project in progress:
The Smithfield Times and Hampton Roads magazine published stories about the pigs. I see the pigs referenced from time to time in online media as well.
