I'm stoked. I just hope people won't mind that it's all weird sketches, many of them rough and unrefined. (Hey, I have to worry about SOMETHING. Unmitigated pleasure is just asking Fate to come along with a sledgehammer and whack you a good one up'side t' head.)
And having been thinking about propaganda and so forth, I found myself idily wandering through collections of WW2 propaganda posters, some of which are spectacular and beautiful and could make strong men weep for the design sense displayed therein--and some of which are just friggin' weird. Many of them are deeply corny to the modern eye. I wonder if people took them seriously then, or if in any time, there's a cadre of people who look at an adorable waif saying "My Daddy bought me WAR BONDS!" and make helpless snorking noises in their throat. I sort of suspect the latter, people being fundamentally people, but then again, "King Kong" was terrifying in its day, so I dunno.
I wound up doodling, naturally. This silly little piece is based on a Russian poster, which had a fabulous design, but, um...no hamster.
