GD+GD Project is a personal project where I'll be using some of my old graphite drawings to create new posters/designs. GD+GD just means Graphite Drawing+Graphic Design. "GD+GD Project" sounds cooler.
The Sweet Life is my second piece for the project. I included the first 2 stanzas of the wonderful poem by Henry Longfellow "The Psalm of Life" into the piece.
The Psalm of Life
Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
"Life is but an empty dream!"
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.
Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
"Dust thou art, to dust returnest,"
Was not spoken of the soul.
