Poetry Poster: for 2/8/2006 event

This is a 8.5 by 11 inch poster which I did for a reading by poet Sou MacMillan. It was part of a series I made for the Wednesday Night Poetry Series in 2006. The method involved collaging bits of paper, (including publicity materials sent by the poet & the Wednesday Night Poetry program/flyer) marking on paper with oil pastel, crayon, white-out, pen and pencil, etc. In all my hand made posters, (as opposed to the strictly electronic ones) I was shooting for a depth of touch on each page. What I mean by that is, in the higher ressolution versions, if you zoom in on any part of the page, there is a lot going, a lot if interesting marks and colors to see.
