A screen print I produced that questions the morality of the celebrations held when Osama Bin Laden was pronounced dead. There were scenes of mass celebration seen Worldwide, but most notably across the United States of America, where hundreds of street parties were held. But is this okay?

A few pictures of my final ISTD hand-in, yesterday. The brief: It Happened on this Day, required me to produce a piece of typographic based design, influenced by a major event in history. My book Little Boy is on the events of August 6 1945, the bombing of Hiroshima.
