Be Happy (postergasm)
« on: August 15, 2008, 02:23:45 am »
edit: made new and (much) improved versions.  See the pdf link further down.









Made these with The GIMP.  I have higher res versions (2000 x 2625, or 8 x 10.5 @ 250 ppi) if you want them.

I like them, but slightly confused about what's going on with the face? It lips look mad chapped.
Either way, good idea, and thanks for the contribution!
meh.

I'm not sure, but it could be playing off the imagery of the Joker, like I suggested we do, since the most recent version is an especially subversive figure.

If so, great idea.

Yes, it's going off the latest Joker.  Hopefully, since my target audience is US college students, all of them will be somewhat familiar with the movie or the "Why so serious?" campaign.

Shared memes just aren't what they used to be.

Here's a suggestion - after putting up a few of these and letting people see them, put up some with the bottom half of the page blanked out.  Then see what people fill them in with.

Poster 2.0, as it were.

UPDATE:

here they are in a PDF.  Improved the pic in the middle a little bit, and added more things to be happy about.  Removed 'ignorance,' because that just wasn't subtle enough.

I am not “full of hate” as if I were some passive container. I am a generator of hate, and my rage is a renewable resource, like sunshine.

The eyes in the first one were a lot creepier and unreadable.

Enki's text is not bad though. A little banal maybe.
Unless stated otherwise, feel free to copy or reproduce any text I post anywhere and any way you like. I will never throw a hissy-fit over it, promise.

I like the disturbingly pink smile.
