The first book I ever remember reading.
The first book I can remember sitting down and reading of my own free will was a hardcover collection of Aesop's Fables. It was probably the illustrations that drew (no pun intended) me to the book to begin with.
I doubt I understood a lot of the stories but there was one that I got. The Crow and the Pitcher. That's the one where a thirsty crow keeps dropping pebbles into a pitcher in order to raise the water enough so it can get a drink. For some reason that one stuck in my brain.
Take on your problems one pebble at a time. It's helped a lot over the years to keep a concept like that in my mind. It's also been on my mind a lot lately that it's a lesson I need to learn again every so often.
This time around, I decided to put my own interpretation down on paper (or on screen would be more accurate these days).
To date, I've done eight different Aesop Fables minimalist posters. I'm sure do more eventually, but for now, it's eight. Each poster is a different fable in a nine panel narrative (as well as the text from the fable).
You can see all 8 here. I'm doing another kickstarter in the hopes that I be able to print a run of all 8 fable posters.
If you like them, you can help make that happen. I'd really appreciate it!
PS. Or you could help by sharing the link! : )
