Syracuse Poster Project Banner

Elizabeth Michals
The phase “trick-or-treat” caught my interest immediately. I love Halloween. The costumes, pranks and free candy are all I need to feel like a kid again. Sugary smiles and the crunching of fall leaves beneath little kid feet bring great joy to me, and it is full of warm memories.

I have always admired both abstract and surreal artwork, so I tried to implement that conceptually into my poster, by placing the children in the leaves, so they are one with nature. Leaves come in a variety of shapes, colors, and hues similar to the diversity of the world and Syracuse University in particular. Every leaf is beautiful and constantly changing, like children who go through changes and someday become adults. I wanted the boys and girls in my poster to represent different types of beautiful leaves, innocent and pure. I wanted them to look like a lovely group of friends having a great time together.

Bountiful orchards
Pumpkin patches, Trick—or—Treat
Oh, crisp, sweet autumn
