Gallant Fox won the racing Triple Crown in 1930. He was foaled in Kentucky (Claiborne Farms) in 1927, owned by Belair Stud Stable, and was the first to sire a Triple Crown winner: Omaha. I was asked to create this print in promotion of America's Best Racing.
I wanted to do something deco as a throwback to his era, but also keep it fresh and contempoarary. The type was designed especially for this piece and I used some vibrant 30's-era paintings for color reference.
