The festival artwork was created by Saskatchewan tattoo artist Roman Corkery. Besides being a fantastic tattoo artist, Roman is also a talented multi-media artist. The Festival thought it was time to have a full-on space theme. With Roman's love of creating space-themed art, he was the perfect artist to tackle the idea, and the result is outstanding.
