  • 2005 Poster: Small Trees Growing Fast


    Small Trees Growing Fast

    I picked out this particular haiku because of the gargoyles. Much of my work is influenced by my interests in mythology and fantastical elements, so the subject was right up my alley.

    I found out that my friend, Johnny Acurso, also had a haiku featuring gargoyles, so we took our cameras and went gargoyle hunting downtown.

    I found my gargoyles on the White Memorial Building, at Salina and Washington streets. I used these gargoyles and the stone carvings surrounding them as reference for creating the mischievous gargoyles in the poster.
