Invictus by Lokiev Invictus by Lokiev
Featuring "Invictus", a poem by William E. Henley (1875). One of my favorite poems, so I just decided to do something with it.
Also because I have a wall peppered with Blu-Tack remnants and I wanted to do a poster so I could print it and cover up that wall.

Very well done.  However, there is a typo.  The first line should read "Out of the night that *covers* me", not "Out of the night that carries me".  Other than that, superbly done.

Ooh, darn. I did this from memory, so I must have mis-remembered that. xD
Thanks!

Good idea. And I totally feel your pain about the bu tack scars. Luckily, that was in my old house, so, yeah, I've learn my lesson well enough, and no more tacking posters up. Besides, the quality of the old posters I used to tack up was pretty poor, and well, majority of the subjects totally embarrassing!

Any chance of a Dante's Inferno done in this way? HAHA!
No seriously, I'm trying to read that now.

My green wall is now pockmarked with bits and bits of blue that I can't get rid off. -grumbles-
I didn't actually expect it to do that; this is the first time I've actually taken the posters down to replace them (I didn't have any posters up last time, it's a relatively recent thing).

Dante's Inferno is really long, though. o:
Is there a verse you like particularly? ;D

Hard to say. I'm still trying to get through it. Please don't start on this project. (I'd really rather NOT drive my friends insane.) If I had to pick it something I particularly like, it would be the Cliff Notes. :rofl: Quite impossible to read the poem w/o help! 

Yeah, I definitely remembered the packaging advertising that the blu tack would come off cleanly without damage. Investigations online showed that to be true, well true-ish, IF said stuff was tacked onto wallpaper, not a painted surface! Sigh.)

I'll look up the Cliff Notes. xD

I feel the same way with a large majority of my Literature texts.

LIARS.
They need to put that clearly on the packaging, okay.
-still staring at the wall-

In retrospect, we would've probably gotten exactly the same pockmarked wall we have now if we'd used glue to get those posters on the wall. Dirty liars. Ugh.

Hey, at least you could probably wash glue off with water. :P

Well... That depends on WHAT glue. You know the sticky white paste thingy? That washed off quite well. Most other types, such as the clear bottle glue, most commonly found lying around? Not so good.

(And the reason we know this is a classroom wall. Oh Hell no, I would never try so in my own house! =P)

Yeah, the white ones are water soluble, so they should come right off.
-is actually trying to put another poster up, and trying to find something that will put it up on the wall without it dropping-
Maybe I should really try the glue. O_O
