A project for my typography class. I had to create a typographical poster by hand that
was specific to a certain decade of my choosing. I decided on the late 60's.
Not sure what kind of paper I used but it was stapled to a Bainbridge board.

The words surrounding him say:

"When I was a little boy, I believed that if you put a tooth under your pillow,
a fairy would come in the night and take away the tooth and leave a dime.
Now, I believed in myself more than anything."

His afro says:
"Jimi Hendrix Experience."

The bubbles say:
"One night only"
"Friday may 10th."

In between the bubbles it says:
"Independence Hall."

The use of font cleverly depicts that funky era & the stark contrast of your style is perfect. Fantastic work!
