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.
