Nu Ukes

For an article about the writer's aversion to the ukulele. This parody of the No Nukes poster was a great idea by my art director. It was all looking ok, with the ghostly apparition of George Formby, and the nuclear explosion, but something was missing. I tried adding little instruments in the mushroom cloud, but this was not working an looked fussy. Then quickly adding 2 larger ukuleles as glasses gave that menacing air that was needed, reminded me of the ban the bomb sign, and the nuclear waste symbol - and in that moment I knew it was complete.
