ontario hall is burning


This is a four colour reduction woodcut (or "suicide block", as our prof at the time called it) done in collaboration with Emily Turner. Our goal was simple: design a WWII Soviet style propaganda poster to protest proposed budget cuts to the fine arts department.  For whatever reason, we decided to do an edition of about 300.  That means that we ran this block through the press close to 1200 times(!>?'!!)  We then postered them all over campus in the dead of night.  I have included a few single and multi-colour prints to show some of our process.

This print was one of the winners of CBC's 'Love, Hate & Propaganda' poster contest.
