Vail was having a 50th Anniversary Poster contest back in early August that I decided to enter last minute… literally I didn’t hear about it until the day before. I didn’t win but here is the poster I made and had a fun doing it. I love snowboarding and drawing on that energy was easy. My inspiration for this poster is that amazing feeling you get from a great day of skiing or riding. I wanted the snow to be all of these interesting textures making it come to life, evoking that feeling of leaving everything else behind. Just you the mountain and nature.
