Once again, the official poster for the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival was created by artist David Cowles.

Cowles was born and raised in Rochester, but his work is featured across the country.

On Wednesday, he spent a couple hours signing his artwork from this year that features each of the headliners done in his caricature style.

He spoke with our Ashley Doerzbacher in the video above about what it means to create the poster for one of his hometown's biggest festivals.
