The start of a new poster. Pie in the Sky. Written by Joe Hill in 1911 and the sentiment still relevant.
I started working with this idea last April but didn't feel I'd quite got it right. I think my imagery was too understated. So I've re-cut the text, making it more expressive and dynamic.
Now I'll change the image from empty hands to starving infants . . .
1st mock up. The image will be linocut, and I will try out letterpress for the text on the sides.
And maybe a book with the more of the text . . . ? depending on who has the rights to it and if I may use it.
I'm exploring ideas relating to memento mori and this is such an odd find. I think it's a sheep's skull but there are none where I walk, and there where no other bones at all . . . strange. Someone must have thrown a sheep's head into the undergrowth, why?
I particularly like the shadows in this photo.
