Title: AUGUST ART COMP - PROPAGANDA
Post by: CrazyFoxMachine on 01 August, 2015, 01:22:17 am
From July's winner Nic Freeman:

Quote
2000ad is full of wars and authoritarian regimes. Produce a piece of propaganda for one of them.
The Justice department or democracy movement in Dredd
The terminators against deviants in Nemesis
Nort / Souther propoganda in Rogue
Anti mutant propaganda in Strontium Dog
Join up to fight the Krewl in Bad Company
The list goes on and on...

There will be a prize for the winner, and one for Tharg's Choice! All entries will be featured on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/2000adartcomp) where they are admired by our 606 followers! There will also be a bonafide 2000 AD droid judging their favourite entry for Droid's Choice....!

Rules for the art comp are these:

- You can enter as many times as you like but bear in mind it will split your vote so it may not be worth it.

- All entries have to be constructed specifically for this competition - so nothing you've done for anything else.

YOU HAVE UNTIL THE 30th OF AUGUST WHEN WE SHALL BOARD THE VOTING MONORAIL

Fair play to you, stuartcatley - I thought this was a genuine 2000ad piece being used as an example - it's THAT good..!!
It's going to take an outstanding bit of artwork to beat that...!

Fantastic image, and pose.
I'm confused by the message, propaganda is smack-you-in-the-chops unambiguous, or it just doesn't work. Sentiment here can be read a couple of ways. Overall, it's anti-judge...? Anyway, had to share my musings.
As an art comp theme, this is a really juicy one to tackle  :)

Great picture Stuart, your style reminds me of Jock. :)

Ok, here's my entry, drumming up recruits to enter into come very Bad Company:

And not an entry, but by way of contrast, here's my Ewins/McCarthy homage black and white version, over which I digitally painted:

Fast and furious this month - If you are familiar with the original Struwwelpeter, this might make more sense, but a crossover felt right, like no right felt before! The book is full of "funny" poems to teach children moral lessons such as don't suck your thumb, don;t play with matches and (in this version) don't dally with deviants! A bit of light reading for Termight children aged 3-6....

Giving this comp a miss. Despite initial thoughts, 'propaganda' was a chewy subject; it's proven hard to come up with something to do it justice. Recognise some early plans in people's entries so far, and the best I had was a different take on Eamonn's 'Vote Kreelman' so wouldn't like to plonk mine in alongside.

If at first you don't succeed, give up. It's liberating! Good luck all  :)

Here's my entry for this month. I just read America and this seemed like the kind of imagery the Democrats might come up with for their propaganda.

Smite for Termite!

Yeah, bit underhand passing off an O'Neill commission as your own work. ;-)
