After finally getting the letter forms and quote to look the way I wanted I continued using the images of carnivorous plants to try creating different backgrounds for my poster.
Now I knew I wanted to create a glow in the dark poster so I decided to work with the quote “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength” I wanted the poster to simply show the words peace freedom and strength as the original image and then the glow in the dark text would read War Slavery Ignorance.
