ZaMyria Hunter named 2017 Krewe Babalu Poster Contest winner
ZaMyria Hunter named 2017 Krewe Babalu Poster Contest. During the month of September; Krewe Babalu ran a contest challenging area artists to come up with a design for the Krewe’s official 2017 Mardi Gras poster. The winner received a $200 prize and a feature in the Galveston Daily Newspaper. Of the entries submitted, the poster by College of the Mainland art student, ZaMyria Hunter, was chosen for its incorporation of this year’s theme, and the essence of Galveston as well as its masterful beauty.
Krewe Babalu and its members would like to thank each of the artists for their wonderful submissions. All of the posters will go up for auction, raising funds for a good cause.
Winning Entry and Official 2017 Krewe Babalu Mardi Gras poster
My name is ZaMyria Hunter and I am a multimedia artist. Most of my art is made traditionally, using colored pencils or alcohol based markers. My focus is mainly the anime/manga art style but I also do portraits, company logos and I’m trying to get into landscapes. As a student, I stay focused and open to new ideas. I’ll listen to what the teacher is telling me while trying new things.
What inspired me to make my poster was the phrase “Femme Fatale”. I like drawing this type of character so I thought it would be fun to make one into a spy. Since I decided to make a femme fatale character, I put her in a black dress that fit her body. Then, I used watercolor paint since it’s easy to make new colors and colored pencils for the little details.
The other posters will be placed in a silent auction.
