The folks over at AlaskaOne have now released this fabulous poster for their 2009 fund raising drive.  They (Tammy Tragis-McCook and Michael Letzring specifically) have been lots of fun to work with.  Here’s what the AlaskaOne website has to say:

A distinguished panel of artists and experts selected the painting titled My Funny Valentines by North Pole artist Madara Hill for the 2009 AlaskaOne poster.

Inspired by the Alaska landscape, Madara mixes wax, ink, powdered pigments, text or fabric with more conventional media while still using traditional Alaskan subjects. Madara uses vivid color to showcase this majestic trio of musk ox emblazoned across a whimsical field of color.

This enchanting oil and encaustic on canvas was chosen from over 60 submissions from artists throughout the state.
