Client: Jake Fruchinicht
Location: Metairie, LA, United States
Completion date: 1998
Artwork budget: $700
The JAL parade banner was commissioned by Jake and Al Fruchnicht. They wanted an old guild type banner for their Mardi Gras marching club. This was painted on both sides. I made all of it by hand.
The artwork represents people of Italian and Irish heritage in the greater New Orleans area.
I presented Jake with a sketch and once approved, I set about making the banner.
