In many parts of the world going to school and getting a fundamental education is a difficult task. By using the handwriting of a child pleading for help, I was hoping to trigger an emotional response in the viewer to raise awareness of an issue that many take for granted.

Years and even decades after wars have ended landmines lie and wait for an unsuspecting civilian to stumble upon them and become a victim. Currently there are over 80 million landmines buried in the ground all over the world. Approximately 18,000 people die each year due to these deadly relics of past wars.
This poster uses the voice of the landmine, a predatory creature hiding in the grass waiting for a victim. The language of 'peek-a-boo" refers to the many child victims of buried landmines.
