Freedom of Speech

So, this is the other poster I submitted for the Poster4Tomorrow campaign.
As for the copy, I actually wanted to put there a few lines from Tracy Chapman's Why. But then I reworded if so as not to risk any infringement on copyrights. The copy would have been this:
"...the time is coming soon, when the blind remove their blinders and the speechless speak the truth..."
I guess this poster was to a large degree inspired by all the dotty images that I've recently saved in my Stuff I Like library. :)
Process is so funny. I actually wanted to make my posters much more "hand-made". That would still be me. I love collaged paper. I was also planning on making some embroidery that would be part of a poster. But during the process, and of course also because I tend to postpone everything up till the last minutes, my posters somehow got to be very simple. And I don't mind.
I'm starting to believe that process is more important than the outcome.

Ohhh, I love it!!! And according to my favorite, beloved spiritual author and hero, the process IS more important than the outcome. Gondolj csak a mandalakra, amiket Indiaban keszitenek. A hosszu folyamat vegen, megsemmisitik oket, mert azt valljak, hogy "nem az eredmény a lényeg, hanem amivé válsz amig keszited". (Lehet, hogy nem a legjobb a forditas, de "it is not the end result that matters but what you become through the making of it")
