A look at the artist

Curtis Waidley

In 2019, I designed eight national park posters for my senior thesis at Mercyhurst University after backpacking in the first National Parks I had ever visited the summer before. Those posters were only intended to get my final grade, and then collect dust in an attic. After graduating, life was bright. I was a professional photographer and a contracted Digital Imaging Technician for American Eagle Outfitters. The Covid-19 pandemic abruptly halted my current life path. Unemployed, and without the prospect of a creative career on the horizon, I began to expand upon the park poster designs I had once created, poured my savings into printing equipment, and jumped into creating prints of my National Park posters designs.
