LANGUAGES MATTER! A UNESCO poster competition

Competition Details

listen closely

by Franklin Wade David Jennings


i was particularly inspired by this contest. i lost my mother to cancer 7 years ago and will never forget the way her voice lifted my spirits no matter how i felt. i think no matter the language; a mother's voice carries the depth all humanity.

this poster was created in photoshop cs3 using multiple brush layers. i wanted the female figure to be the focal point enveloped in a wispy, fantastical world. the essence of a mother caressed by images of a dream.
