To everyone that has commented and fav'ed this piece, thank you. But really...there are better Animal Farm inspired pieces here on DA. Go check them out too...
To everyone that has commented on the use of the Cyrillic font - Ok, I get it. It was a bad choice. I agree. I did this 5 years ago so RELAX! If I were to do this today, I would choose a different font. Ok? Ok...
this is a propaganda poster for one of my all time favorite books, george orwell's animal farm.
this poster illustrates the initial belief that all animals are equal. this is before the pigs, lead by napoleon gained control and declared that all animal are equal but some are more equal than others. I might do one illustrating that belief at a later date.
***i chose to use a cyrillic looking font as part of this design because the book is, in many ways, a commentary on post-revolution russia and totalitarian governments.
the symbols in the corners are part of the official animal farm flag as described in the book and in the cartoon.
