Krewe of King Arthur

 This year, I was asked to design a poster for the New Orleans-based KREWE of KING ARTHUR,  a popular  parade (9th Largest!) over in our sister city to the West!
 I figured the King and his Court celebrating the 300th Anniversary of the Founding of the City of New Orleans in a 'First-Line' parade, marching joyously as they play their Jazz instruments. Hand-rendered line-art was scanned and digitally manipulated. Final product below.

LaSHEs To Go On UNDERWATER FANTASEA

 The Order of La Shes, rained out last night, were scheduled to roll this evening with --appropriately-- a nautical theme of "Underwater Fantaseas", featuring floats designed by me and built by Craig Stephens and his crew at Carnival Artists.
Fittingly, it looks like it will be wet out during the parade. Wrap up!
