CCCMB TrailWerks Poster

When I was assigned this job, and CCCMB told me the trailwork targeted, I immediately thought of American Gothic by artist Grant Wood as the hook. This may be the most parodied art by an American painter.
I replaced the original house with Froom Ranch house,  strapped a BMX helmet that fit the farmer's skull so well, traded the pitchfork for a McCloud, and gave the wife a shade hat worn by sun savvy hikers. This classic painting is a cultural icon and has been one of the most reproduced – and parodied – images ever.
I hope this poster catches the community's attention and brings many volunteers out on this special TrailWerks day. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY LATELY?
