At first, this merely started as a design school project, focusing around charity posters for the victims of the earthquake in China, Sichuan, in 2008.
However, after much work, and severe interest from teachers and students alike, I decided I wanted to sell this as a poster.
Its raining bricks… and a kid is standing with an umbrella. Just like all the effort put into saving the victims of the earthquake, it is by far inadequate for what it is up against. The lights in the sky… is it the fallen stars from the chinese flag, or perhaps the souls of the victims that may have died in that very building. And is the kid even alive, or is he a ghost or angel, standing and watching over the dead? And even in all this disaster, is there a little ray of hope?
Show your support for the Sichuan earthquake victims, and keep them in your hearts and minds.
