Gallery: FAC Holiday Art Exhibit – December 7, 2013

December 9, 2013 / Blog, News / 0 Comments

Photos by J. Hardy

We’ve included a few select photo frames from the Fayetteville Arts Coalition’s Holiday Art Exhibit on December 7, 2013 at the former FAC Gallery in Fayetteville, WV. Guests and artists abound, we were popping tags and passing out cream pies (literally lol) until the rooster crowed or it was time for the kids to go to bed, whatevs.

A stellar evening was had by all thanks to the hard work put in by the FAC staff and the artists. We’re looking forward to working more closely with FAC and other artists in Southern West Virginia in the future.

Peace, love and chicken grease – BZ

~ Fire & Ice ~
Image and Poem By Brian C. Zickafoose © 2012

Over a valley of crystal in a distant mystic realm,
Shadows cast long and a day grows late.
A brazen beast props atop a lofty, frosty helm,
To gather his thoughts and ponder his fate.

He broods over truths from ages before,
To journey the path that his passions follow.
Fate’s wind fans embers of memories of yore,
And stirs fiery flora to flicker the hollow.

With a nod of the head, he resolves to take flight,
After a lengthy debate with his restive soul.
He knows in his heart he must fly by night,
If he ever hopes to achieve his goal.

His destiny’s quest is to find mysteries unknown,
In the land of legend his adventures begin.
A day will soon come to rest peaceful at home,
Until it’s time to fly high away again.

 


DMT :: Divine Moment of Transfiguration :: Illustration

DMT :: DIVINE MOMENT OF TRANSFIGURATION
Vector Illustration By :: Brian C. Zickafoose © 2011

A new illustration by artist Brian Zickafoose titled – DMT-Divine Moment of Transfiguration, delves into mysteries concerning supernatural agents, inter-dimensional astronauts and altered perceptions. Zickafoose bounds through the aeons to an era when artist and shaman were one and the same, where the collective conscious and the well-being of the tribe were dependent on the distant etheogenic explorations of the medicine man and where special fruits of the forest were selected for their messianic properties and consumed for the prosper of all, in an effort to understand the paradox of the grand illusion we know as reality.Read more

Artist: Brian Zickafoose
Client: The Blue Ridge Blues Society
Event Location: Roanoke, Virginia

For ten years, the studio of Brian Zickafoose was a proud sponsor of the Blue Ridge Blues Society’s Blue Ridge Blues & BBQ Festival. Beginning in 2005, Zickafoose chaired the Blues Society’s marketing committee, while heading up the festival’s creative and advertising duties. In 2010, Zickafoose snagged multiple American Ad Federation ADDY’s for his work on the festival art and marketing.

This year’s campaign included various advertising elements for print, online and television:
• Promotional Handbills and Posters
• Web Banners and Print Ads
• Outdoor Billboards and On-Screen Cinema Ads
• Festival Program and Event Signage
• Ticketing and Display Marquees
• Sponsor Kits

For our festival merchandise, we produced a limited runs of individually hand numbered and signed, 6-color silk screen, commemorative art prints. We applied 5 soy-based inks: Black, Metallic Gold, Metallic Silver, Light Blue, Cream on 100 lb. French Paper Hot Fudge Pop-Tone Stock. For the official festival t-shirts, we silk-screened the 5 colors on distressed cream, sand and charcoal tee’s for a rustic, worn look.


Floydfest 9 Breaking Ground :: Festival Art

December 14, 2010 / Portfolio, Show Posters / 0 Comments

Floydfest is a wonderful festival located 45 minutes from Roanoke, VA. Floydfest earns its namesake from nearby Floyd, a town of 500 people nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Prior to working with Floydfest, I had attended the festival 2 times and had become quite fond of the quaint locale and scenic setting. And well, the music lineup was always killer.

I was offered the opportunity to do the artwork during negotiations for my position as Street Team Manager by the promoter and owner of Across the Way Productions, Kris Hodges. We met briefly over lattes to discuss what he envisioned for the artwork. Working with Kris on a creative level was great because he had a clear vision of what he was looking for in the design which is usually a rarity among clients. Kris wanted a slick, flowy, Euro feel to it, bright colors. He specifically wanted a visually striking flower sprouting out of the music note seed. He also requested that Buck Mountain – an iconic mountain in Floyd, VA – be included and to somehow incorporate the number 9.

I ran with it and turned the final art over two days shy of the deadline. Less than a month later, a winter version of the original art donned 40,000 fliers and hit the street. 250,000 fliers later, Floydfest 9 Breaking Ground sold out. Unbelievable that so many people were exposed to my artwork. It’s like they say, life’s a garden… dig it.
