Fuck Fear Poster
Dimension 16" x 23"
We all use the F-bomb for a myriad of applications. However, the pairing of it with the idea of fear is a symbiotic combination. As each of us maneuver our way through this journey we call life, fear seems to discourage and handicap many of us. It’s often based upon things from the past or things that have yet to happen. Nevertheless fear is a powerful mental construct. It keeps us stuck, posing as a roadblock to what would otherwise be endless possibilities. The surest way to overcome and inspire a different paradigm is to trust in your heart — a source from which imagination, courage and creativity flourish.
The custom letters that make up the F-bomb were intentionally meant to look like ornamental bones that are connected with thin lines attached to a scattering of hearts. The lines symbolize how each of us are interconnected and as we love, hope and transcend our fears, we give others the opportunity to do the same.
I originally saw a bumper sticker that said “Fuck Fear,” during my morning commute. While I could appreciate the sentiment, I was inspired to create an alternative. One that contrasts the F-bomb in all its crassness, with the beauty of calligraphic lettering.
