The poster represents a poem written by Jim Morrison. It
explores the idea of motion, and how objects go from a
state of rest to action. Nature is a strong theme

contrast complements the energy of the imagery, while
repetition, collage work, and watercolor effects occupy
the core of the poster and add dimensionality.
