Sketchbook entry of a day in Boston, Massachusetts.
The poster shows a body of fire burning in a rain/snow storm. Kitimaat, where the group originates means 'people of the snow' in Tsimshian. The fire represents a new growing force of energy that is surviving in heavy conditions.
The duo proudly reclaim the savage stereotype in The Average Savage, commanding attention with an interesting way of storytelling. The poster border is crooked, rough around the edges and the Snotty Nose Rez Kids name is spray painted boldly across in front. Their use of samples and audio clips of existing racist media is visually translated in the poster through the use of a rewind effect on the fire and attachment of a cropped Cleveland Indians logo. Images of fire and water beneath the logo represent the duo’s ancestral influence.
