The project given was to create a poster that visually summarizes and analyzes the complex theory, or extended narrative of water wars. The challenge to this project was that I was not allowed to use anything from the Adobe Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator etc.) so the image must be created by hand and photographed by myself. I wanted my poster to be clever yet straight-forward. I put army men into clear water bottles and splattered blood to represent my theme. I made a tracer and sprayed “WATER WARS” onto acetate which I then inserted into the water bottles to subtly incorporate typography in my composition.
