LouFest 2018

 LouFest 2018: Art Direction / Illustration

I was commissioned by LouFest to design their 2018 commemorative poster as well as t-shirts, magnets and a new logo. LouFest required that poster include Forest Park, the horned owls of Forest Park, and the city of St. Louis. I took the opportunity to push illustration skills to the next (hand-cramp inducing) level. Unfortunately the 2018 LouFest was cancelled days before the event, and only a few copies of the poster saw the light of day.

Wing detail

Park details, the trees are all drawings of actual trees from the festival grounds.


A few snaps of early exploration before landing on the final concept.
