The Decadent and Depraved Kentucky Derby

The Run for the Roses is this coming Saturday. For the occasion, the group Kentucky for Kentucky commissioned Louisville artist Rachael Sinclair to create a poster paying homage to Hunter S. Thompson's classic report "The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved" from 1970. The characters, analogies, and concepts from Thompson's piece are represented by silks on the poster, from Colonel Sanders to Inbred Bloodlines to Acid Trip. If only the actual field were this colorful! Only 200 limited edition prints are available. Get a closeup look at the details at Kentucky for Kentucky. Link -via Deadspin
