Games of Acadiana poster artist revealed

Lawtell artist Theon Guillory has been tapped to create the 2014 Games of Acadiana poster that will represent Miles Perret Cancer Services annual game extravaganza.

The self-taught artist has a variety of styles and techniques from early inspirations like Bob Ross, Walter Foster and the line up of artists he watched on LBP. Guillory says the concept for the Games poster was a challenge that required both thought and prayer.

"Normally, I would concentrate on tones, depth, and shadow, but the concept was more important than beauty for this piece. A childhood game came to mind, and I knew it was God's plan - a medical-based game would perfectly represent this playful event. I am thankful to God for talent and blessings; family, friends, and coworkers for support; and MPCS for the opportunity. I am honored to be the 2014 GOA poster artist, and I can't wait to see the piece reprinted for event use," Guillory says. 

Games are slated for August 16 at the Cajundome and Convention Center. For more info click here for event schedules, maps and the history of Games of Acadiana.
