Every once in a while there’s an author quote that I come across that really hits me; sometimes it’s just pure genius and is poignant regardless of time and situation, and some quotes seem to connect so perfectly with current events that it’s hard to believe they were written twenty, thirty, sixty, or even two hundred years ago.
And sometimes I’m able to connect that quote with an image that perfectly captures how I felt when I first read it. It could be Dalton Trumbo’s ‘See How I Sing
‘, or Nuruddin Farah’s ‘Time As a Cloth
‘, and there are many more.
But yesterday I was brought back to this quote by Poul Anderson, an author I had never heard of before a year ago, and this image I created to accompany it. The image turned out pretty well considering the limits of the app I was working with; as much as there is to love about Adobe Spark for what I do, the number of clip art options are overwhelming and difficult to search through. But for all the difficultly I ran into, it turned out exactly how I’d imagined it.
So of course I had to put it on a tote bag—because capitalism. Now through November 29th you can get 30% off + free shipping from Gas Station Burrito at Society6!
