Anne Muckleroy, a sophomore communications design major at Louisiana Tech University, is the winner of the 2013 Louisiana Peach Festival poster contest.
Muckleroy’s design is a series of 18 hand-drawn canning jars each filled with a different peach product. She added a peach-tinted watercolor texture to each jar. The poster is a combination of her original pen work and computer graphic design.
Muckleroy describes the poster as “a Southern hometown version of Andy Warhol.” The West Monroe resident said the design stemmed from a childhood memory of visiting her grandparents in Ruston.
