I've always wanted to do a homage to my state, incorporating the things that make Kentucky what it is. I did this poster featuring a number of Kentucky icons using the colors sampled from a vintage tin of Kentucky Club pipe tobacco. You'll find the state bird and flower, an alert thoroughbred in racing gear, a bourbon barrel, basketball, coal miner's helmet, a Kentucky long rifle, and lastly, a Gibson mandolin (the one used by the father of Bluegrass music, Bill Monroe). The word Kentucky was hand done for a more rustic feel and it's surrounded by 15 stars as Kentucky was the 15th state added to the union.If you'd like to purchase a print, follow the link here to my store!
You can see a detail of the mandolin below. It was important I get that part right as I hail from the same county as Mr. Monroe.
