2017 ARTWORK INSPIRATION

This year's artwork was hand created and styled by local artist Danielle Garza, sign painters Lauren McElroy and Jessica Cowley, artist Luke McGarry, photographer Tod Seelie, and the FYF team. Inspiration was drawn from the iconic posters and color-ways of the now-shuttered Colby Poster Printing Company, a staple of Los Angeles promotional posters. We grew up seeing these posters all over the city and the aesthetic has always been synonymous with Los Angeles.

Before they closed their doors, we used their prints for numerous FYF shows and early festivals. Check out the book In the Good Name of the Company: Artworks and ephemera produced by or in tandem with the Colby Printing Company to learn more about Colby and its history.
