Fire and Ice, a Robert Frost poem

Last week’s derby was a little bit difficult for me. The theme required me to design a character, thing I’m not too good at. But I manage to come up with what I believed was a very good design. At first I was very frustrated because it wasn’t receiving any votes in the first couple of hours. But then, people started showing it some love, a lot of love actually. After three days, it made it into the Fog. Slowly, but steady. Then, it fell from the Fog the day before the derby ended and then entered again. I know it’s not going to win, but it’s up there and it’s one of the contenders. Hey, it may receive an Honorable Mention and compete once more. Crossing fingers…

Now, this week’s theme is something more abstract. Poetry Illustrated. We had to choose a poem we liked and design something around that. To be honest, I’m not too much into poetry, specially poetry in English. So I had to research a little bit more than usual to come up with a concept for my design. I stumbled upon a few cool poems, but there was one that stood from the crowd. “Fire and Ice” by Robert Frost. I liked the apocalyptic feel it has and how well that could be translated into an illustration. Here’s the full poem:

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Robert Frost

  1. I recieved my shirt and i love it! I already got one comment on how cool it looked. Keep up the amazing designs

  2. I love the design and I was wondering if I could use if for a poetry project for my English class. I have to use art to text connections and this fits perfectly. I’ll credit you and have the link on my works cited page. If it’s not okay I won’t use it. It really is an amazing design though! Keep up the good work.
