I’m hittin’ the road with La Junta this weekend, with our first mini-tour stop in the Central Valley city of Fresno, CA where we’ll be rocking with the good guys from Cumbiatron! Here’s the Facebook event link below. Let your friends in the area know!

The flyer you see above was done by the Cumbiatron crew, but I created the image you see as the featured image. Along with the two images that I designed for the subsequent Ojai and San Luis Obispo events, you may notice that my ideas were based on old posters and packaging for California’s citrus/orange industry from the early 1900s. I really enjoyed working on this series. Hopefully I came close to recreating the aesthetic from that era. Maybe I’ll get to see you at one of the tour stops! 🙂

That’s right, we’re headed north on a zig-zaggy weekend road trip up through Fresno, back down to Ojai and back up and across to San Luis Obispo. Three days, three counties, three cities, three parties and one car, bringing afro-latin, tropical music goodness to some our favorite cities a few hours north of LA.
