I was asked a few months back if I would be interested in creating the official event and tee shirt artwork for Paint Louis 2014. Being familiar with some of the history behind the event made my decision a “no brainer” and I gladly accepted the challenge. I attempted to create a piece that was relatively easy to read, yet not watered down in any way stylistically. I also had to work with their color limitations for screen printing so I tried to keep the pallet to a minimum. I ended up going with a Gold, Navy, Black, and Lt Grey color scheme which is similar to their local NFL team’s colors. I also threw out a few more color options I liked for good measure. In the end, I believe they made some changes to the colors for their event tee which I am eager to see this weekend in person at the event this weekend.

Paint Louis is taking place from August 29th through Sept 1 in St. Louis, MO. If you are anywhere near the are, we encourage you to  come out to check out all of the artwork and events that will be taking place this weekend. Saratoga Sake and myself will be there repping Wild Style Technicians along with our freind Unique ASK XMEN so feel free to stop by and say hi if you see us out there working!
