This was a project done for my class, Design and Communication. The goal of the project was to convey a life-mantra that we live by with strong imagery. We began by first brainstorming different mantras that we liked and then sketching out different ideas for them. I settled on this quote and had a good idea where I wanted to go with it from the start. The text on the board ("Live a quiet life &") was burned on using a propane blowtorch and pieces of cut steel to use as stencils. I shaped the words in the sawdust using cardboard cutouts then finally added in a person and miscellaneous objects to frame the entire saying.
