The Nether Regions

September 28, 2018

Shruthi Manjula Balakrishna is a member of a group of advertising creatives and independent designers who share a love of powder days and first chairs have formed Colorado’s Favorite Runs, a charitable collective that celebrates our favorite places to ski and ride with cool, original art. Shruth-dogg and company assigned themselves a community project to promote Colorado agency and indie artists as well as a deserving cause: climate awareness.

The group’s motto is “Peace. Powder. Print.”

Shruthi’s contribution to this cause was the illustrated poster titled “The Devil’s Crotch.”

By hanging out with local folks and making stuff that she and others deemed fun, fresh and prosocial, Shruthi got her work published in Graphis Magazine’s Graphis Design Annual 2019.

Doing it yourself—sometimes it pays off.
