Nothing Will Work

Cecil Warner

This 11 x 14 in inspirational print is beautifully created by Cecil Warner, an illustrator and graphic designer from Burlington, Canada. Each print is silkscreened by hand with rich paint on thick natural cover stock.

With a Canadiana spin, Cecil took inspiration from nature and animals in a print full of personality and charm. Featuring a powerful quote from Maya Angelou, this print will remind you that work is necessary in order to move forward. Dreaming, contemplating and envisioning something is simply Part 1 of the process. Without action you’re at a standstill, preventing yourself from becoming the master of your own reality.

The Message

Nothing Will Work Unless You Do is a quote from poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou.

Dreams and contemplation are not enough to move forward. Though one can take much pleasure and comfort from letting ideas build in their mind, without action they won't come to fruition. Though initially scary, following through is exciting and creates more energy, momentum, and change in the world.
