A while back, I posted sketches of a poster for a performance of Strauss' opera Ariadne on Naxos. Today, I would like to confront you, dear reader, with what I ended up competing with. The Posters are based on the idea that Opera is sound, and in sound our imaginations are left to discover the images we think should go with it.
The first version, in black and white…
Soon turned into a coloured version, when everyone started asking "Why the hell Black and white?"
To answer those people: Colour is almost everywhere. Undersaturation was a relief to me when I made this.
