LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Limited edition Kentucky Derby Festival posters rolled off the printer Wednesday morning.

This year's posters were designed by artist Karen Boone. She's a graduate of Sacred Heart Academy and the University of Louisville.

The poster art was painted traditionally using organic oil paint.

The official poster won't be unveiled until next month, but it will be similar to the design of the limited edition version.

"The difference between this one is, I am also a graphic designer -- I kinda wear two hats," Boone said. "I'm a painter, but also by day, I'm a graphic designer, so I love this kinda represents both sides of who I am, and also gives the audience some choices."

The Derby Festival Poster Series launched in 1981.
