Bonnaroon was inspired by reading a newspaper article about Bonnaroo, the infamous rock music festival in Tennessee. Some of the words are from the article or are invented nonsense words based on descriptions of the bands and the venue. Scribbles were added with stencils to represent the chaotic environment of an outdoor music festival. The large circles are full moons, the grays are the paving, and the yellows are both the stage lights and the sunlight. The title became Bonnaroon when I looked at the colors and realized I had used a maroon color in the background.
