Miles Perret Cancer Services announced on Tuesday its 2014 poster artist for the Games of Acadiana in August.
Lawtell resident Theon Guillory is a self-taught artist using many styles and techniques. His early learning came from watching artists such as Bob Ross, Walter Foster, and many others on LBP (learning TV station).
Since then, he has experimented with various styles and constantly seeks to educate himself on new techniques.
"Creating a concept for this painting was a big challenge and required thought and prayers," Guillory said. "Normally, I would concentrate on tones, depth and shadow, but the concept was more important than beauty for this piece."
The Miles Perret Cancer Center Games of Acadiana will be held Aug. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cajundome Convention Center.
