Poster for Saysomething.org.au
- Saysomething.org.au is an initiative by the Victorian Police Force. This year they are holding a poster competition that asked us to 'say something to prevent youth violence'. My entry is based on a quote that a mentor of mine like to say when I have trouble accepting the conflicts that happens around me when I was younger. Particularly when it happens amongst the people that are close to me, may it be parents, mutual friends, or co workers. He likes to say "Conflict happens because people Care" you have an opportunity to focus on either the conflict or the care in other words focus on the reason not merely the action/conflict itself.I chose to illustrate the intensity of a cockfight to illustrate the fires of youth in mid argument/fight juxtaposed with the copy. In the heat of the conflict we might lose our center which is why the text is situated there, and it is impossible to identify this without a touch of humility which is why the copy at the lower half of the page.
