The Age of Media Fakery: Art Corner

This is a thread for people to post their September Clues fan artwork.

Now keep in mind we are going to be extremely judgmental art critics here - and this isn't about free expression Jackson Pollock or Andy Warhol kind of stuff. We want you to discredit the phony war on terror and do it good. It's not really about having fun or making inside jokes. It is the serious business of strong communication. Graphic design. Powerful, impactful honest messages and not vague or hidden or subliminal messages or propaganda. Stuff that makes people think what you are thinking - not treating people like animals that have to be "trained" to think a certain way - sharing the ideas of September Clues such as:

  • MEDIA FAKERY
  • TELEVISION FAKERY
  • PHONY TERRORISTS
  • VICSIMS
  • FAKE AIRPLANES
  • PLANTED WITNESSES
  • WITNESS CONTROL

... and the other powerful ideas on this site.


MAKE IT ORIGINAL

If you see other people's art that does a good job, you may post it here if it's really quite good, but obviously original material is preferred. Original art makes us feel on top of things and it makes us feel like we are producing help in the world instead of re-posting what's already been done. You don't have to be Leonardo da Vinci. Just be original and smart and compassionate.


ANYTHING YOU WANT AS LONG AS IT'S STILL SEPTEMBER CLUES

All types of art are acceptable - digital, painting, video, music, interpretive dance :P or theater - let's keep it lively and collaborative. Someone may come up with an idea that another person might want to implement or flesh out. The reason we are even risking free expression in this way on a site that is primarily about research is because we know that dry text isn't always the best way to communicate powerful ideas. In fact, it's often quite boring. Having said that, just because something is brilliantly funny in some way doesn't mean it will work for a wide audience or help our message in the best way. Let us be open to critiquing one another and making sure we produce the best way to convey the most informed and intelligent and logical messages of September Clues.


$

Yes, you can sell things like pins, drawings and tee-shirts if you want - if any of the art created here makes you money, more power to you. However, please try to consider that the most important thing is to get the message out and not necessarily make money from it. Perhaps if something becomes wildly popular, it makes sense to turn it into a revenue stream but let's keep this thread as a basic building-grounds of all the art and not a discussion of marketing.


WE ARE THE MEDIA.

Here are some graphics I made. I know they are not good - go easy on me. I think I am an okay artist but I want these things to be effective. First, some banners I made:

and here is a graphic I modified in order to make fun of the ridiculous "threat level" invention:

RD,

Masterpiece all of them and my favorite is " ARE YOU SURE".

More of this stuff cos when people laugh their brains are open to take in uncomfortable info and digest it at a later time.

George Carlin was the master of delivering uncomfortable messages and have people to open their brains and start to think critical.

Art, huh? Cool. I love art.
I hope the master of surrealism won't mind...

...but I've imagined a canvas he might have signed :


"Saviour of the Wings"

Any ideas for a "Lord of the Wings" variant? :P

(for the non-Spanish/Italian speakers:)
Salvador= Saviour
D'Ali = Of Wings

Hey, Hoi:
You should post that fabulous "Pinocchio murales" you painted on the rugby stadium's graffitti-wall up the road from my house!

ha - nice piece Simon but a bit vague. People have to understand TV fakery to "get" that it's a truly surreal homage.

I think Martin got that graffito - but I don't have a picture and now it's been painted over, hasn't it? ... :unsure:

I think I should pull a Killtown and make some sort of political cartoon. Loved that "never before seen footage of 9/11" with the guy stomping on the tower - very funny man.

Compelling. Is that one of the "Jersey girls" in a TV show you think?
