Decemberists poster!

I won I won!  The Decemberists ( a lovely and worthy band) held a contest for their poster for the South by Southwest music festival.  In their solicitation they maintained that there would be extra points awarded for the subtle inclusion of Ladybird Johnson.  I used that as my starting point, along with the theme of their new album, The Hazards of Love.

It was quite an impressive array of entries, so I consider it a sizable victory.  Watch for 1600 of them al over Austin this March!

Hi Kathryn!

I was just on the Decemberists' web page and saw that your SXSW poster entry won. Congratulations!! You must be so excited. The poster looks amazing!

I was looking through your portfolio. I love your style. I've bookmarked your site and will be checking in from time to time to see what you've been working on.

Very nice work. Very in tune with the Decemberists' line of thought! Are you a fan?

Anyway, I am now a big fan of your work, having perused it on your site. More power to you!
