Pinkie Pie - FOREVER. by kefkafloyd Pinkie Pie - FOREVER. by kefkafloyd
Something that's been bothering me a while is the fact that my original "Pinkie Pie is Watching You" poster is the most popular thing in my gallery. It's a fun idea, but the poster is a bit on the low effort side. The idea deserves a little more than what I first put into it.



In the interest of improving, I decided to redo the poster completely from scratch. I redrew Pinkie from scratch to try to get a more imposing look from her. Instead of using the original Big Brother is Watching You from 1984 as a reference, this one is more in the spirit of Glenn Grothe's He's Watching You, one of the more misunderstood pieces of art done for the Office of War Information. Like Loose Lips Sink Ships, the poster was trying to inform people about the dangers of careless talk about war information by showing an imposing enemy soldier observing them. Unfortunately, the image's overly stylized depiction of a soldier caused confusion - some interpreted him to be their employer, others thought it meant the US Government itself, as the helmet resembled the Liberty Bell. The reaction towards that poster lead the OWI to change its direction in posters to make them clearer and more direct, like magazine advertisments.

You can now buy this on a shirt online or in store at Hot Topic! [link]

Fallout: Equestria! Did you know that this is propaganda poster from wartime Equestria in the story Fallout: Equestria? Pinkie Pie is the main mare of the Ministry of Morale. This is just one of many wartime Equestrian propaganda posters.

Huh. Well, this poster sure does add fear to the Equestrian wasteland. You should read Fallout: Equestria. It actually is quite a masterpiece.

Fallout Equestria took it from me, this was created well before FO:E was even written.

The shirt is sold out and so far not reprinted - email Hot Topic over their customer service to request it, that's about all we can do for now.

I will not rest until I have this T-Shirt.

Answer from Hot Topic: "that is a great suggestion! I will definitely inform our buyers of your interest in seeing this item become available once again."

Gonna wait the weekend, then suggest it again, I guess.

So it looks like the price is cut in half, but the "SOLD OUT" tag is still there. :(

The price is related to the current sale they have on T-shirts.

Unfortunately, I believe these are out of print and there's nothing I can do. :(
