Hard to believe 2013 is coming to an end. I have started to look back over the past year to make note of milestones and in many ways it seems like I managed to pack two years of projects into one.
A big highlight for me professionally was inclusion in Communication Arts Magazine’s Illustration Annual back in June. My poster for local Louisville band, A Lion Named Roar, was selected to appear next to the work of some of the greatest illustrators in the world today. People I follow and admire.
I didn’t think much could top that, but this month I will have two posters included in Print Magazine’s Regional Design Annual, also known as the RDA.
I will be representing my home state of Kentucky as part of the southern design region. My poster for A Lion Named Roar has been recognized again, as well as my movie poster design for Wes Anderson’s film Moonrise Kingdom. I actually get an entire page to myself which has my mind blown.
You can pick up a copy of Print’s Regional Design Annual on newsstands now. I look forward to finishing out 2013 strong with one last big poster drop that takes me back to my Phish Fan Art roots. Hint, hint.
I can only imagine what 2014 has in store.
