The previous layer was a variation of the Yao Ming’s poster, which is again a modified version of Obama’s poster. It had a caption “NOPE” with hands that say it as well. As soon as I saw it, I wanted to do something with the hands to convey another message. So I came up with an idea of making him a rapper using one of the caps rappers wear and the “peace” sign, which is known to be a symbol of a rapper in media. I also changed the caption to “YOLO,” which is short for “You Only Live Once,” and this is another symbol of rappers known to media. I did not modify textures or colors however, to maintain the original sense of the poster.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
