Ullr artist: Morning DJ and afternoon artist

Special to the Daily/Scott Howard

For the last three years, one Breckenridge man has represented Ullr.Scott Howard, aka Scotty Bondo – morning DJ for KCMV, is a Denver native who’s always wanted to live here.”I heard about (the poster contest) back then as a Front Range visitor,” he said. “When I moved up here, the first thing I did was enter.”Using gouache (painting with opaque watercolors), the art school grad won his first try with a “big, ghosty Ullr throwing snowflakes at the town” to represent 2005’s theme, “This Snow’s For You.”As a telemark skier, he used his influence to make the god of snow a tele skier floating through the powder on his way down into the village of Breck for the theme, “Powder Days, Party Nights,” in 2006.Howard said he spends between 40 and 60 hours on each poster and that this year’s will be his last allowing for some new talent to get a chance.

“You’re not officially a local artist until you’ve had an Ullr Fest poster printed,” he said. This year’s “Nobody’s Cooler Than Ullr” theme brought out an Ullr that today’s snow rider can relate to. In other words: “Ullr, but wearing younger, hipper clothes, with his boxer’s showing,” Howard said.
