CCAD Illustration Chair C.F. Payne was recently interviewed about the challenges of stepping into a creative role that was long-held with acclaim by a former college classmate.
Payne told Cincinnati.com that the bar to create a collectible poster to promote the Cincinnati chapter of the American Heart Association’s Mercy Heart Mini-Marathon and Walk was set high by John Maggard, who illustrated 30 previous posters for the annual event but had a deadline conflict in 2011.
The concept for Payne’s poster, which was recently unveiled at an invitation-only event in advance of the March 2011 race and walk, was sketched on a napkin while the two artists, who both attended Miami University in the 1970s, dined together.
