Joelogon Is Your FRIEND: He Fights for FREEDOM

Here's a graphic I did up and posted to Flickr last week:


It's a parody treatment I did of a World War II propaganda photo; here's the original photo from the World War II poster collection at the Northwestern University Library:

This Man Is Your Friend: He Fights For Freedom (Chinese)

I cleaned up the poster a bit -- there's a discoloration from tape at the top of the original, plus an archival stamp, both of which I took out with my rudimentary Photoshop skills.

It prints out fairly well to 8.5"x11", so I gave one in a clip frame to my dad.

For the Joelogon version, I used the pic that Timmy took (that I use for all of my profile pics, evidently), which was sepia-toned. I matched the colors and added some noise.

Also, if you look at my left shoulder -- that part is faked up, because the original photo crops there. It looks pretty good as long as you don't look too closely.
