TRUTH

Day 45

A THING IS NOT NECESSARILY TRUE BECAUSE A MAN DIES FOR IT

First in a series of posters I’m doing based on quotes from Oscar Wilde. I love the wit and sharp truth behind much of what Wilde says.

WHALE OF A TIME

Day 44

HAVE A WHALE OF A TIME

I wanted to do a whale poster and this English idiom popped into my head and it seemed perfect. Really enjoyed doing this one.

DOLLY PARTON

Day 40 – 43 (catch-up)

YOU DO SOMETHING TO ME THAT I CAN’T EXPLAIN – Islands in the stream

HOLD ME CLOSER AND I FEEL NO PAIN – Islands in the stream

THE TIDE’S GONNA TURN AND IT’S ALL GONNA ROLL YOUR WAY –  Working 9 to 5

BUT ABOVE ALL THIS,  I WISH YOU LOVE – I will always love you

When I was growing up we had a few records that we listened to over and over: Kenny Rogers, Beach Boys, Boney M and Dolly Parton. These posters feature some lyrics from my favorites.

FRANKENSTEIN

Day 39 (still catch-up)

I MAY DIE; BUT FIRST YOU, MY TYRANT AND TORMENTOR, SHALL CURSE THE SUN THAT GAZES ON YOUR MISERY.

I just love the dramatic writing in Mary Shelley’s classic novel, Frankenstein. The monster is actually not such a bad guy and is my favorite character. He was just given a bad reputation by the horror movie genre, which is the style my poster is based on.

CRAZY

Day 38 (catch-up)

BEING CRAZY ISN’T ENOUGH

Another extraordinary extract from the wonderfully witty Dr Seuss.

I’M SAILING UP YOUR WAY

Day 37 (catch-up)

I’M SWIMMING THROUGH THIS OCEAN OF GRIEF, AND I’M SAILING UP YOUR WAY.

Great lyrics from Imogen Heap’s ‘Missing You’

DIE AND FOUND OUT EVERYTHING

Day 36 (catch-up)

YOU WILL DIE AND FIND OUT EVERYTHING, OR CEASE ASKING

While this quote may seem gruesome I think it is extremely comical in a kind of Edgar Allen Poe way. It is from Leo Tolstoy’s ‘War and Peace’ I love how this quote starts with a grand sweeping statement and is followed by such a negative, glass half empty point. The fact that I find it amusing is more than likely a warning sign of some sort? I should speak to someone about that.
