As for the design itself? Well, it's a little confusing -- and maybe a little scientific. To POTW's untrained eye, it looks like one of those skinless anatomy models you find in science class or at the doctor's office has morphed into a monster. And it appears to be doing a pretty classical Greek drama pose -- until you realize that it's either eating the human in its hands or holding it up for sacrifice of another sort. Either way, an arresting visual, for sure -- one helped by the all--black background which makes the image jump even more.
All in all, a fitting design, since, indeed, this is Dear Human's demise. Nice stuff.
Think your poster is better? Want to see one of your designs get honored next week? Drop us an email with an image promoting an upcoming show right here. Oh, and, when possible, be sure to do so at least a week in advance of the show. Thanks!
