Seeing as it’s World AIDS Day and all, it’s rather timely that SF-based freelance art director Keith Gibson and his Red Pencils crew return with their goodwill mission to fight the disease. Just like last year, the Red Pencils are looking to enlist people from the ad community to take part in the AIDS/LifeCycle, a seven-day bike ride that this time starts in San Francisco on June 5 and ends in Los Angeles on June 11. The current 2011 Red Pencils roster consists of:

Keith Gibson / Freelance Art Director & Designer / Riney, San Francisco
Michelle Kelly / Jr. Communication Strategist / GSP, San Fancisco
Brandon Reif / Creative Director / Draft FCB, San Francisco
Laura Gibson / Marketing Director / ECA, Oakland
James Brown / Freelance Creative Director/ San Francisco
Michael Tabtabai / Creative Director / Saatchi & Saatchi, Los Angeles
Mark Estes / Freelance Photographer / Oakland
Christopher Wood / Creative Director / Luckyfish, Atlanta

If interesting in riding, email team@redpencils.org or if you’d just like to download and put up the poster to show your support, here’s your link.  Full release after the jump.
