May Day

StrutTime for one of my favorite festivals of the whole year! It’s cold and somewhat grey in Helsinki, but that’s usual. It would be a bit too much to have a warm May Day…

I’ve designed a soviet style “1st of May” poster as a school assignment in National Academy of Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria. I did okay but the scenery had a little too pittoresque houses with happy looking farm animals, so the teachers kindly commented the poster to show perhaps a socialist 1st of May in Finnish style. I blushed!

But no 1st of May scenery here! The spring is arriving! Yay!
