David Pope’s stunning print of Eden, NSW completed as part of his tourism campaign in the newspapers of Australian Community Media (ACM). ACM is the publisher of The Canberra Times, Newcastle Herald, Illawarra Mercury, Border Mail and many other regional and agriculturual mastheads. A portion of the sale proceeds go to the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) to raise funds for the long-term bushfire recovery effort. David draws his inspiration from the old Australian travel posters of the 1950’s and 60’s, along with the Japanese woodblock print tradtion of decades earlier, and more modern comic book influences. “I wanted to draw the things we love about these places – which, despite the devastation, remain in intact – without downplaying or glossing over the impact of the fires. I hope they help strengthen communities between town and coast, and support livlihoods disrupted and devastated by the fires, without sidestepping the climate warning the fires represent”.
Rolled print measuring 416mm X 590mm in semi gloss.
