Stamp Ilustrator Craig Frazier and the New Scouting Stamp
According to the article, "Frazier originally imagined the project from two approaches — 'sea level and up in the sky.' The first try yielded lakeside tranquility; the second offered mountaintop adventure. Adventure won out. The final design shows a 'dual read,' an image within an image. The colorful foreground figure scans the horizon in garb suggesting a modern scout. The wide-brim hat of the background silhouette calls to mind a bygone era — more romantic than historic."
Craig points out in the piece, "“A stamp is really a combination of hints. As an illustrator, I’m looking to include the symbols that let you in as a viewer, to remind you of something deeper still. It‘s what we all want to think of scouting adventures as being — whether we climbed a high mountain or not.”
The Scouting stamp is scheduled to be released July 27.
