Yesterday was Alley Art Festival here in Aurora, IL. It’s such a great little art fair only 1.5 miles from our house. It’s one of my favorite things about downtown Aurora and favorite days of the year when I get to meet art lovers living in my community and hang out with my favorite local artists! Of course I had to have some Aurora inspired art, which to me being a non-native Auroran, meant something Wayne’s World movie inspired.
During the 2017 25th Anniversary celebrations of the movie in downtown Aurora, the local gallery and custom frame shop, If These Walls Could Talk, hosted a poster design contest. Mine didn’t win, but sold. Plus, I did get a cool photo of Tia Carrere in front of my design!
Below is a design based on the poster that I had for sale at the festival. I’m thinking I might add in a photo of Aurora in the background too. What do you think?
Here is a link to buy the print.
