PRIDE by connorlassey PRIDE by connorlassey
Graphic Design project #2 is a protest poster. Its not due for another week, but I managed to finish it in 2 days. Mainly because I have no life, but also because I really enjoyed this project. I chose to make a protest/motivational poster, depending on your point of view. If you're going to a Gay pride march, this can be a motivational poster. If you're marching in front of anti-gay activists, then its a protest poster.

If you don't know, its Dr. Frank-N-Furter, the amazing Transvestite from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I chose him to be the LGBT's presidential candidate for this parody on the Obama Pride poster. Fitting.

Click download for the full-sized, 2'x3' poster. Print it out and use it if you'd like!

UPDATE: I've been getting messages regarding wether or not this image can be used in this blog/that magazine/ my website/ etc. I don't really check my messages here very often, and if you desperately want to display this on one of the above places (or any I left out), please feel free. Do NOT feel free to claim it as your own, as I will nut you if you do. But seriously, this image is telling a message, and that message should be available freely.

Basically, from here on out, you don't need to ask permission to use this for non commercial purposes, unless specifically crediting me as the original artist. Thank you all for the wonderful feedback and love for this image!

“Pride should be reserved for something you achieve or obtain on your own, not something that happens by accident of birth. Being Irish isn't a skill... it's a fucking genetic accident. You wouldn't say I'm proud to be 5'11"; I'm proud to have a pre-disposition for colon cancer, or proud to be gay.”
George Carlin

Wonderful job! The Shepard Fairey style is classic and will be a long time before it dies. Striking and smooth, I think there's only one thing I would complain about - that exposed straight line parting the blue and the red in the background just above Frankie's head. D:

But that's just because I'm not a fan of straight lines. :shrug:

Still love. :heart:

This is ironic, because the character claims to be a "transvestite" and a "transsexual," which are two totally different thngs. So that's a little offensive. : P

However, I love the concept of taking a popular "gay" icon and putting them onto the Obama "Hope" poster. : ) So, good for you. < 3

:iconconnorlassey:
connorlassey Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2011
That's not irony. That's just ignorance to the terms. And if you find it offensive, you should watch the film again. Because it really isn't.

Cheers, though.

I always thought a "transvestite" was somebody who cross-dressed as just a lifestyle choice, regardless as to whether they're gay or not. A "transsexual" is somebody who was born the wrong sex, and wishes to have their sex changed to suit their gender identity. ... right> :?

I do like the film, but that one scene always puzzled me; like, I was never really sure whether to laugh or just purse my lips and wait for it to end.

I do love this poster, though. It's awesome, amazing concept.
