WACO, Texas — The Deep in the Heart Film Festival teamed up with local artists this year to promote the festival and engage with attendees.

Local artists like Skcoobaveli Trevino, Blanca Dunwoody and Will Suarez contributed to promotional artwork and murals for the festival.

A mural by born-and-raised Waco artist Skcoobaveli is located at the 7th Street Plaza in downtown Waco and features more than a dozen film references, including Forrest Gump, Spiderman and E.T.

"Here I am, wanting to do something great in my life. And they just popped up like a little miracle," Trevino said of the festival reaching out to him.

Other artists, like Blanca Dunwoody, created promotional artwork for the festival. Dunwoody's work appeared on passes for the festival.

"Five years ago, ten years ago, I would've never seen myself in this position where I'm seeing my art, I have clients that are printing it," Dunwoody said.
