First thing that, errr, shoots into your head?

While studying visual communication in Gauteng, South Africa a couple of years ago, we got a project from one of our stranger lecturers. I can't remember the brief word for word, but it came down to this:

Design an advertising poster for an archery/bow-shooting competition.

After already being called "Farmgirl" (which I often got even though I never, ever stayed on a farm) I was already a bit cynical about this guy's class. And I always thought that, as creative, right-brained people, we should think out of the box, right? Right?


New to the world of computer software other than Paint, computer graphics and computers overall, I spent an entire week working on my idea of an amusing poster for this competition (that, according to me, would have sucked in any way). So I got to class...very excited and stuff...ready to blow his head off with my idea of a design. I proudly took out my image...

You guessed it... I had to start all over and ended up using some supplied-by-lecturer-for-forced-to-use-or-fail-image of a Native American or something.... I still think the chicken kicks ass though.
