PBR X ESPERANZA BANNER COMPETITION RESULTS!
by Lee Starnes with some help and direction from Bean_PBR_ATL.

HOLY SHIT at the amount of talent and hard work the artists put into our banners. This was way harder than we ever thought it would be at the onset of this whole thing. After cruising through the endless stream of people at the parade, drinking a few too many beers, and watching the craziness, we bickered, argued, and finally came to a conclusion. We decided we’d have one winner and then two runners up in no particular order.
EVERYONE THAT COMPLETED THE BANNER IS A WINNER, and ALL WILL BE INVITED TO POST-EVENT PARTY soon at 5-Spot!

Dillon scored himself $150 bones courtesy of Pabst Blue Ribbon as well as a party sponsorship for the 5 spot. Keep tuned in for details on that little shindig. Esperanza and Pabst will be throwing down in epic fashion, I’m sure. Runners up are getting some PBR goodies as well, so good times for all. EVERYONE IS WINNER that took time to be creative and add to the fest!! BIG THANKS!!
Check out his bio:
Dillon Reedy is an artist and illustrator residing in Atlanta, Georgia. Drawing monsters as a child, he has always had an interest in the strange and mysterious. As he grew older, music became a dominating aspect of his life. Playing music however, was never an option, as Dillon possessed less rhythm than Helen Keller at a rave. Instead, he continued trying to further his artistic abilities, with music being his muse. First pencil, then pen, onto acrylics, and eventually digital mediums, Dillon continued to explore the mysterious aspects of life and attempting to find his niche. At the age of 24, Dillon has settled into a wild, border-line psychedelic style.
Here are some of the banners from the competition.
