Rhythm & Ribs 18th & Vine Jazz & Blues Fest 2011 Official Event Poster

The completed event poster for 2011.

For this year's piece, I worked with a fabulous Kansas City musician for my model. My young son and I went down to 18th & Vine to photograph this musician for the reference shots. It was a great experience for us all, and gives the poster a sense of place and authenticity. The incorporation of historic landmarks, the Charlie Parker sculpture, and a portrait of a working musician, gives a soul to the artwork.

The event takes place Saturday, October 8th. You can get more info here.
