UWI Alternative Wednesdays

Here’s a nice lil throwback from the days of the UWI Alternative Wednesdays Crew, back in the good ole days of Infinity. This is the original artwork for this particular flyer.

No laptops with desktop publishing software back in those days, so I would hand draw the flyers with ballpoint pens on the back of some random tutorial sheet (I think this one was an Intermediate Microeconomics 1 sheet…urgh…). Usually it was done in the big caf at random times. Then the Crew will all put up whatever spare coins we had in our pockets to make some photocopies and walk around campus sticking up on notice boards and other random spots. A few may have been placed on lecturers office doors. 🙂

Most times, walking back after sticking up flyers, we would notice that they would disappear, thinking they were ripped down. It was only after some time, after not drawing them for a few weeks, that folk began asking me where the new flyers were. I would later find out they were actually collecting them! Lol!

They were usually very detailed pieces with a lot of hidden stuff all over, random lyrics, symbols…etc. etc. etc.
