  • 2004 Poster: Onondaga Lake


    Onondaga Lake

    The inspiration for this came to me in the spring, when the County puts up those signs along the parkway: Watch Out for Baby Geese. You see deer crossing signs, and you see horse crossing signs, but to see one for baby geese—it's different.

    Whenever I see those signs, I hope that people do slow down. I mean, goslings are so darned cute. It's always a shame when they grow a little older. They're just gangly and awkward, like a teenager. They're not a cute fuzzy gosling anymore. And as full adults they can be nasty. When I go biking along the Erie Canal—man, they're intimidating!
