100 Days Project

Damien: History repeating.

As a graphic designer I’m fascinated by the powerful effect of a simple illustration can have in communicating an idea, a belief or even a complex story and want to pay homage to the age old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”.

Recently I’ve become passionate with the world around me in terms of environmental, social and political issues which led me to stumble upon an inspirational editorial illustrator / cartoonist, Herbert Block. His cartoons spoke louder to me than any written article at a time when no one had the “balls” to write an article tackling a controversial subject or person.

My 100 day plan is I want to re-work his cartoons in a unique style with touches of colour and type for impact to bring different topics to light again – as it seems history has a habit of repeating itself.
