This poster started appearing in Los Angeles. I heard rumors about it showing up in Atlanta, too.
I did not make these; I've found them on the web.
gee, i didn’t know that art could cut both ways.
Like lipstick on a pig...
I want some of them posters to put up around Cincy!
Creepy.....but not as creepy as the real thing.........
Please post HIGH RES Obamajoker pictures or links to high rez files that can be turned into posters and bumper stickers :o)
It’s actually very good!
Not effective IMO.
umm, that little message is sort of self-incriminating.
Effective? It's expressive. That's what art is.
This IS a dicey area. But I’m inclined to give more leeway than usual here, because Obama was the subject of countless worshipful images — HOPE! CHANGE! — with 2- and 3-tone posters verging on those used by personality-cult states. Seen as parody of THOSE images, these new images are fair game, even if it’s not quite my thing.
How so? Somebody wants to express themselves on the subject. Does it have to be approved by the Conservative Czar?
I mean for me personally, using after-effects to put makeup, etc. on a public figure’s image. I don’t mean “you’ll get in trouble.” (At least not yet ... just give Pelosi time, however ...)
The white face clown, a.k.a. the classic clown or the whitefaced clown, is the clown most people first think of when they hear the word clown. Associated with the circus, the whiteface clown is the most intelligent of the clowns, and is typically at the top of the pecking order. The whiteface clown will typically be the ringleader, who will order around the other clowns, and who has his clownishness revealed either by his own ineptness or by that of his underling.
Add a measure of clown-creepiness and somehow it all fits.
Turnaround is fair play.
Genius. May I use that when appropriate?
It’s a “dicey area” if you’re still worried about being called a racist for ridiculing someone whose skin is darker than a paper bag.
