Chesapeake Bay Awareness Posters - facing the horrifying truth!




I did these with my friend David Pijor a while back, they are part of an Advertisement campaign raising awareness of pollution throughout the Chesapeake Bay area. The theme of the vintage b movie posters where used to a) hint at the horrifying truth that the Chesapeake Bay area is in danger of being a highly polluted and unlivable place and b) to grab people's attention. David cooked up the idea and asked me if I wanted to come on board, and of course I was there. Hope you guys dig em and they get the word out. We are currently discussing a print run, but we have to iron out some details, we'll keep you posted.
