Last April or so I was asked to draw a logo for the Afghan Hound Club of America Breeder's Cup for 2009. Karen Larsen the Show Chair wanted a theme that had a Southern California feel. What better than an Afghan Hound relaxing on the beach under the light of the moon and stars and of course you have to have some palm trees.
The event will take place April 9, 2009 in Silverado California. The event is once a year, usually some time in Mar., April or May and it rotates to a different region of the USA each year. This is the time for breeder's of this wonderful breed to show their upcoming stars. This years event will be followed by the Afghan Hound Club of Ca. and the 2 days of the Western Hound Association an all Hound show. The venue is fabulous nested in the rolling hills of Orange County. More about this event here: AfghansONLINE.com Home under AHCA Breeder's Cup 2009. This logo will be used for the cover of the premium list and the catalog, also will be used on t-shirts, mugs etc. and all items will be for sale at the show.
In order for the club to raise funds to help pay for the event and the trophies (which they have commissioned me to do), I also painted them an oil painting using the logo as my reference. This painting will be the theme for the trophies and tickets for this painting are on sell now.
