Doing What We Are Told
Today I was inspired by Alice Mrongovius’s little, beautiful, minimalist, gentle and sweet comic: “I have always hated being told what to do”
A graphic meditation on sign and signage.
Her zine has a particularly urban feel
Rural signage looks almost, at times, comically incongruous
I enjoy this the intersection ‘tween nature and industrialisation.
The various ways we create to communicate
Rules, warnings, information
It interests me
Not that I pay the messages much mind
I, like Alice, don’t particularly enjoy being told what to do
Except when it comes to the bush fire threat signs
You’d be mad to ignore that
