“I really messed up … OH NO (OH NO OH NO OH NO)”
What’s the idea behind your poster?
I wanted visual emphasis on the words “OH NO.” At first, I wanted it to be purely typographic, but it needed something to spice it up, so I turned to one of my favorite sources: the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s public-domain image archive. I chose this painting of Echo (from Greek mythology) by Alexandre Cabanel primarily because it’s clear in her expression that something has gone terribly wrong. On a more meta level, the words “OH NO” are like an echo.
