if he can, so can you...

The only regulation given on this project was that the poster had to be relevant and advertise a campaign for adult literacy. I had several ideas at first, but none really stuck, then, as a joke, I said, ‘if George Bush can read, anyone can.’ The instructor loved it and told me to run with it. The image was created, in it’s entirety, in Adobe Illustrator, using President Bush’s official White House Presidential photograph as a reference. I also decided to make the image just a little disturbing by using several shades of gray for the Presidents teeth and eyes. The font used for ‘if he can, so can you...’ is Georgia, an elegant subtle serif font. ‘READ’ was done in the sans-serif font News Gothic Std.
