2019 Poster Art

It was an honor and a delight to work with the incredible team at Miles Perret this year. My poster concept was inspired by the story of 1000 paper cranes, in which folding 1000 oragami cranes in a year can grant a wish. It was my wish that by painting at least 100 oragami cranes, I could support MPCS in their incredible mission.. During the painting process, my grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer, which made this piece even more personal. So each crane was painted with a prayer for the health of those whose lives have been touched by this organization. The bright colors represent hope, and the cranes flying with Milesy towards the Games are meant to show how the mission of MPCS is a journey we make together. I pray that all of Acadiana's survivors and their families will be able to join Milsey and his paper crane friends at Games of Acadiana this year, and in years to come. I cannot thank this incredible organization enough for their kindness, charity, and support.

"It has been a pleasure and my privilege to work as the GOA artist this year. This selection is a blessing in my life just like MPCS is a blessing upon this community. When I was drawing up designs, I was thinking of the phrase "Join the Team." I saw MPCS as this big athletic team with a winning mentality and a very specific goal in mind. I've played sports all my life, and I know what it means to step out onto a field and play with a purpose. My design is meant to embody a jersey that represents that team effort to do amazing acts of charity here in Acadiana. When I think of jerseys, I think of stripes. The color of the stripes derive from the color of the stripes derive from the colors of the Acadiana flag. Next, I wanted to create a symbol that encompassed the roots of Acadiana but also included iconography to represent the many services that are available at MPCS. What was born was a Fleur de Lis made up of symbols for each of those services and has Milesy at the center of it."

2017 Poster Art

"It has been a joy and honor to join hands with Miles Perret Cancer Services in creating the 2017 Games of Acadiana poster. Stepping foot into this opportunity, my aim was to create a piece that communicates clearly what the GOA is all about, which lead me to the mission, vision, and core values of MPCS. In the 2017 poster, Milesy stands before a treasure chest, overflowing with hope, support, healing, faith, and love. These are words that MPCS not only cherishes but aspires to share by providing services that help families fight, survive, and live with cancer, at no charge. MPCS is able to lift families up largely by the generosity of sponsors, volunteers, and participants of GOA. The treasure within the chest captures what makes up the GOA and more so serves as a catalyst for spreading joy, bringing the community together, and changing lives.”

2016 Poster Art

"I am honored to be chosen as the poster artist for Games of Acadiana this year. Games of Acadiana is a vital part of Lafayette and I am thankful that I have been given the chance to show Acadiana what Games of Acadiana means to me. I've attended Games since I was a child. As a student of Ascension Episcopal School, the very school Miles Perret attended, support for MPCS was central to our dedication to service. The poster art contains four vines, representing "Play Through the Seasons," Each vine is vibrant and filled with fun elements that represent the fun games available. The vines originate from Miles, since without MPCS, Games of Acadiana would not exist. The sun shines behind Mile's heads and hands, showing the hope and light the MPCS brings to families fighting, surviving and living with cancer."

Victoria Topham
2015 Poster Art

"I am extremely humbled to have been chosen as the GOA artist this year - especially as it marks the 15th year of Games of Acadiana. I could not think of a better cause to use my talent to help. I began by thinking about what GOA means to me. To me, Games is a fun, playful event that spreads the message of families living with, fighting, and surviving cancer. The bright colors represent the playfulness of the event. The different sports on the cake show the wide range of activities the event offers. I chose to put Miles looking between the candles like any kid would be, eagerly waiting to blow out the candles. The 15 represents the 15 years of the GOA, but it also conveys the year 2015. The Milesy icon is depicted under the cake showing how the organization is there through every family's journey - lifting them up and aiding them through such a difficult time. I am extremely proud of this poster, and I could not be more honored to have been asked to create this piece of art."

Dailey Thibeaux
2014 Poster Art

"Creating a concept for this painting was a big challenge and required thought and prayers. Normally, I would concentrate on tones, depth, and shadow, but the concept was more important than beauty for this piece. A childhood game came to mind, and I knew it was God’s plan—a medical-based game would perfectly represent this playful event. I am thankful to God for talent and blessings; family, friends, and coworkers for support; and MPCS for the opportunity. I am honored to be the 2014 GOA poster artist, and I can’t wait to see the piece reprinted for event use.”

Theon Guillory
2013 Poster Art

"I am truly honored to partner with Miles Perret Cancer Services in the creation of this painting to promote the 2013 Games of Acadiana. It is an amazing opportunity to play a small part in actualizing the mission of this organization that is a blessing to our community. I have lost both parents to cancer, so I am inspired by MPCS and the people that survive and live with cancer every day. As a community, we can make a difference! Collect your friends, and go play!"

Christa Billeaud
2012 Poster Art

"It was an honor to create this special piece for MPCS. I have walked with family and friends through cancer, and I understand the ripple effect that cancer creates. Pulling from these experiences, I chose to focus the piece on the positive things such as constant support from friends, continuous prayers fro strength and courage, and love that grew exponentially day-to-day."
