Eclectic Music Fest poster

I just finished the poster for this year's Eclectic music fest, a hometown & homegrown music festival here in South Pasadena. I found the parrot jewelry in my picture library and it was an instant connection; big flocks of those those birds squawk constantly in the trees around town. One version for store windows and another for the for-sale posters. Next up – tee shirts for the event.
