Cecil Con 2017 Poster - Maryland Convention

2017 Cecil Con poster

Designed by former Cecil College student Maddy Rose Finnan, and alumni Meredith S. K. Boas.

This design is the official poster for Cecil Con 2017. The design is inspired by the fantasy aspect of Cecil Con. We usually go for a sci-fi look, but we felt that this year we needed to represent our medieval roots with a Renaissance look. This design will be used in many aspects of the 2017 convention branding, such as the convention booklet, postcards, website, social media, maps and more. This poster was drawn by Maddy Rose Finnan, but vectorized and colored by her sister Meredith S. K. Boas. Yay siblings!

Designed by former Cecil College student Maddy Rose Finnan, and alumni Meredith S. K. Boas.

This is the official t-shirt design of Cecil Con 2017. The design features the Cecil seahawk in outer space as an astronaut wielding magic?? We combined concepts of fantasy and sci-fi to create a unique piece that’s fun without taking itself too seriously. The seahawk was hand drawn by Maddy Rose Finnan and vectorized and laid out by Meredith S. K. Boas (Maddy’s sister). Yay teamwork and sibling power! These shirts were screen-printed with two ink colors and they GLOWED IN THE DARK. Awesome!

Cecil Con 2016 Convention T-Shirt - Maryland Convention

2016 Cecil Con t-shirt

Designed by former Cecil College VCP student Jade Wampler.

This design served as the official Cecil Con 2016 t-shirt. Originally supposed to be screen-printed, this shirt was ultimately heat-pressed because it was designed in Photoshop, and was not vector-based. This was the first year we offered t-shirt merchandise to attendees. The design features our Cecil seahawk in his wizarding robes as he uses his magical staff to levitate a treasure chest of precious gems and coins.
