My Vision of Peace
I was happy to be involved with last years Peace Project. The wonders that are happening in the art community are amazing. This year, I wanted to create something that was directly related to what The Whole 9 is striving for. I wanted simplicity and hope in a minimalistic nature. Peace is a very minimal quality to obtain. In this case, helping others to stand, will give them that peace of mind to continue living strong. Through my new found knowledge of graphic design, I was able to create a simple image with one of the key components that will be used in Sierra Leone - crutches.


Medium
In creating my version of "Peace Rises," I started with a photograph I took of one of my crutches. Then I multiplied it in Photoshop. Once I had the proper amount of crutches, I began to use the "Puppet Warp" option to bend the crutches into a circle. I finished the peace sign with three more crutches on a smaller scale to complete the peace sign. I gave the image a drop shadow to create an illusion of the peace sign floating or "rising." Finally, I added the text.

Thank you for the feedback. I am a little bummed that during the submission process the image was squished. The original (which I posted on my website) is circular. I'm not sure why here it is oval.

I am very happy to be apart of your wonderful project!
