War Pigs

If you have ever seen this blog before, you will know I have been submitting designs to Threadless.com for a while now. After all this time, and with much jubilation, a design of mine has been printed. It was a design titled War Pigs. The idea came from the song War Pigs by Black Sabbath and also derived from Orwell's Animal Farm. The anti-war overtones of the song and design are just as important today as they were in 1970, when Black Sabbath released the song.

I used public domain (creative commons) photos of Generals, and Leaders from WWII, and pigs. I combined them and matched the graininess of the newer photos with the old. I also tried to emulate an old time vignette to crop the bottom of the image.

 This is the image from the original submission.

Go and check it out if you get a chance. I am grateful for the community at Threadless and everyone else who has supported me thus far. Thank you for looking.
