So, I'm taking a break from my current animation project to work on the next piece of creating a world for a video game. This particular piece is creating propaganda posters for inside the world, as a way to flesh out the darkly oppressive look and feel of AErligheim. As a way to research what makes good propaganda great, I began wading through the dark and unapologetic back-eddies of the internets in search of the truly unique propaganda imagery from during WWII. I love the skill that allowed a masterful graphic designer to drive a point home, in one, punchy frame, and I do not care, for this exercise, how crazy the message itself was.
...which is good, because, man, it gets strange. It gets very, very strange. Like with these two handy broadsides about how to avoid chemical weapons:
Remembering all the times Grandmother told us not to waste food...
...and, for all of my friends who actually are Canadians... (Love the hat!)
