Gruss vom Krampus Funk from your friends at BrianZickafoose.com.
Have you been naughty or nice this year? I’m pretty sure Krampus is going to get a few of you.
[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]
This time of year the whole world over, folks gather round with friends and loved ones to reflect on the highlights of year that has passed and the abundance of blessings it has brought. It is a time to be thankful for all the wonderful fruits that the universe has provided for us and to remember those who have been less fortunate.
The essence of the season is more than just the giving of physical gifts, it is the sharing of love, helping others and coming together as a community.
One doesn’t always have to buy things to get in the spirit of giving. Sometimes free stuff is the best. Pass along a smile. Hug someone. Buy a stranger a cup of coffee. Random acts of kindness are really contagious.
Regardless of what religious tradition or spiritual path you may follow, we sincerely hope each every one of you have an amazing, and safe, holiday season.

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.
The Blue Ridge Blues & BBQ Festival :: Advertising Campaign
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.
Here we have a cozy, snowy clubhouse at dusk. This image came about as a commission from Hunting Hills Country Club in Roanoke, Virginia. I have a history of design with the club being their primary designer for over four years. I have produced various print and design projects for the club during my tenure including producing their monthly newsletter, web site, promotions, advertising and mailers.
