This is the last poster I did that was actually displayed on the streets. As the posters were put up on fences and telephone poles, people followed behind taking them down and running off with them. Though flattered, the client and I felt that to continue was self-defeating. From this point onward, my posters have been hung on interior walls.

Sometimes I imagine that they yearn for the wild, free life of their ancestors-torn by wind, washed by rain, defiant of "post no bills." Shrill bus cards and gargantuan big-brother billboards roam the great outdoors, while my shy and rather small creatures, with quiet colors and soft, gently persuasive images, must stay indoors, even on sunny days.
