Altschmerz

ALTSCHMERZ: Weariness with the same old issues you've always had - the same boring flaws and anxieties you've been gnawing on for years. Poster design of a word from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows - a catalog for words in other languages that have no direct English equivalent. I tried to convey the meaning of the word in my design, focusing on a sense weariness. The illustration is inspired by Greek mythology, specifically the story of Atlas holding up the Earth.
