Artist Statement

I wanted to illustrate a family looking to a hopeful future for a poster for, "A World without Nuclear Weapons. This family, hand-in-hand, is in silhouette against the dawning of a new day. I used a fifties, comic book style type for the text to take the viewer back to the days of the cold war, when the threat of annihilation was very real. Actually, this image could be seen in two ways, as I had intended, a family looking to a hopeful future, or a family in the direct path of a nuclear blast with no future, with no future for any of us! — Lyla Paakkanen
