Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 27, 2009
This week, the work of Denver-based illustrator David Carron and Boulder-based photographer David Mejias will be featured in an international advertising campaign set to run extensively in photography and design magazines. The campaign introduces the Wacom Intuos4, the newest digital pen tablet for photographers, designers, and artists.
Carron and Mejias are among six artists the company chose to feature in the campaign. Three of the campaign's other artists come from other U.S. states; one is from Chile.
"It's a coincidence that two of us are from Colorado, and we're also both named David," said Mejias. "It's an honor to represent the Colorado creative community in this way."
Carron adds, "I'm very fortunate for the opportunities I've found here in Colorado, and I'm honored to have been chosen to be part of Wacom's new campaign."
The print and web advertisements will feature the work of the artists, a reference to their use of Wacom pen tablets, and a link to http://intuos.wacom.com where the public can learn more about the artists.
