Always an honor to be awarded the prestigious assignment of creating a stamp for Canada Post, illustrator Jillian Ditner was further thrilled to be selected for such a special occasion; commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice. Selected for her skill at creating technically accurate yet beautiful renderings of wildlife Jillian brought all of her abilities to this assignment. Under the art direction of Larry Burke and Anna Stredulinsky of Burke & Burke Jillian paired the realism of a luminous dove against the somber backdrop of an eery war-torn landscape. Jillian’s dove hovers just aloft barbed wire, symbolizing the end of WWI while not white-washing away its destruction. Beautifully done, the artwork is the perfect balance of hope and reflection for this significant occasion. Available for purchase here.
