New Work: Event Poster
For nine days in October, the New Mexico skies are painted as hundreds of balloons lift off from Albuquerque's Balloon Fiesta Park. The annual Balloon Fiesta, is Albuquerque's biggest public event, by far. It's always an exciting time of year for those of us that live here.
Cottonwood Printing Co. is comfortably situated out by Balloon Fiesta Park and holds a private breakfast one morning during the week, for viewing the Mass Ascension – a launch of all the participating balloons, a major feature of Balloon Fiesta since its earliest days. In honor of this event, each year Cottonwood prints a poster and gives it away to clients and local businesses to promote the event. This year I was given the opportunity to work on this poster. I'm happy to share this new work here now - finally, something I can post in actually time!
As a bonus, it looks like they're going to print the following black & white image as a coloring page give away to children attending the event.
