Austin artist Jules Buck Jones is the creative mind behind the Austin City Limits Festival official poster for 2016.
Like in Jones’ large-scale drawings and paintings, animals figure front and center — specifically a fox.
“I’m interested in the gnarlier side of nature,” he told the American-Statesman in 2014.
“If it’s cute, it’s over for me.”
Jones exhibits around the state and nationally. He’s part of the artist collective that runs the busy Mass Gallery in East Austin and he teaches at Texas State University.
Most recently Jones and the Animal Facts Club — a collective of artists and scientists — performed “The Biodiversity of Texas,” an artist-made nature diorama, presented live and large-scale.
Jones also recently editioned several enormous prints at Austin’s Flatbed Press.
A multi-color version of the ACL poster sells for $30.
A limited edition signed version in blue sells for $175.
