Jackson, WY (PRWEB) December 17, 2007
The 5th Annual Jackson Hole Film Festival (June 5 - June 9) today announced the launch of its website at http://www.jacksonholefilmfestival.org and poster art which features the multi-media and illustrated images created by artist Chuck Anderson. Commissioned to bring together the key elements that make up the Jackson Hole Film Festival, Anderson juxtaposes illustrative representations of the landscape and wildlife that Jackson, WY is known for with photographic images of the downtown and the Teton Theater, the marquee venue of the annual Jackson Hole Film Festival.
"When thinking about choosing an artist for our fifth annual Festival, I wanted to find someone who embodied similar qualities as the Festival brand itself," said Jody Friedericks, creative director, Jackson Hole Film Institute. "Inspiring; new talent; modern; and different than anything else out there. With Chuck Anderson, I got exactly what I was looking for."
Chuck Anderson's work is a mix of analog and digital elements including collage, photography, hand drawn illustration and design. Now 22 and currently hailing from Bloomington, IL, Anderson has been creating since the age of 18, completing work for clients like Reebok, Microsoft, Nylon, Sandisk, Nike, ESPN, and Mountain Dew. In addition to client work, he has become known for his fine art creations, which can be purchased online at http://www.npandco.com.
