Making A Protest Sign and Voting!
The Making of a Protest Sign
This is a huge important election year for sure! It feels like the moment we decide to embrace democracy or abandon it. I am hoping for full embrace and progress. Because it’s so important I have been using my visual sensibilities to communicate ideas through signs used at various marches and rallies I have attended. Our engagement matters so I march and most importantly I vote.
Rough concept sketch beginnings
As with any creative project I start in my beloved sketchbooks. Once I get a concept and direction for this sign I created a mini mock up of it out of paper ( postit notes to be exact). I now feel ready to take the next step and have a clear vision of how I’m going to build this.
Lots of cardboard
Paint acrylic based works great!
Gorilla tape for reinforcements
Scissors or exacto knives
Matte or glaze spray to protect your art
Signs ready for some good trouble!
