I had the distinct pleasure to create the signature artwork, "Winter Is Here" for the Old Mill District Winter Campaign in my beautiful hometown of Bend, Oregon. Setting a festive tone for winter in our neighborhood, the art is featured on banners lining the streets, the magical background at SantaLand, holiday ornaments and the Winter Guide. The original is on view at Tumalo Art Company through December. Read more about the project
