Josh Ritter, Temptation of Adam Lyrics, Crossword Page, Old and New

Similarly to my last post, this idea has been floating around for quite some time.

I was inspired by the lyrics of Josh Ritter.

The song lyrics that really started this all:

"We passed the time with crosswords that she thought to bring inside

What five letters spell "apocalypse" she asked me

I won her over saying "W.W.I.I.I."

The idea was always apocalypse, WWIII.

Then it evolved into me creating a full crossword and juggling a thesaurus for hint ideas. All to do with and surrounding this one song.

I love this work as a print, but the backpack (old version) really adds a touch. It lends itself to the whole bunker, missile silo, prepper feel.

Continued under the gallery, is a live performance of the work's inspiration.
