About the Artist
This year’s poster artwork is by Rachel Eleanor, illustrator and “picture pilgrim.” For Rachel drawing is a form of meditation and pictures are a path of pilgrimage, a way to pencil herself into distant lands in search of deeper connectedness and meaning. Illustration is a spiritual practice in constructing personal mythology, creating a cast of characters to send out on quests exploring the wilderness within and without. Delight & Disarm is her motto, and her pictures, like friendly companions, can help you on your own journey into the great wide world.

Artist Rachel Eleanor pulled back the blue velvet drape alongside City of Decatur Mayor Patti Garret and DAA Executive Director Angie Macon at the Poster Unveiling Party on March 31 at the Decatur Arts Alliance.
