Last semester my Digital Imaging professor gave us the assignment to create a Propaganda poster. It could be about whatever we like, from actual issues (politics, religion, economics, ect ect) to fictional issues (games, shows, books, ect ect) to things you think people should do with their cats. There was no limits, as long as it included text and images, and we used a few tools in photoshop.
Being the person I am, I chose Marriage Equality.
I worked very hard on this poster, and I am incredibly proud of it.
I wrote and rewrote the text on the image so many times I’ve forgotten exactly what it used to read. I wanted to make it short sweet and to the point:“Hate and religion do not belong in our constitution.”
Now understand, “hate” and “religion” do NOT go hand in hand. I picked those words as the broad spectrum of what is keeping us from marriage equality because separately they are the two biggest factors.
To keep this short, as honestly I have no reason to explain myself to any of you about my choices but feel the need to do so anyway:
RELIGION, because one of the main reasons people in this country are against lgbtq+ marriage is because “the bible says it’s an abomination.” There are religious people who support lgbtq+ marriage and I really respect all of you for it, but there are a lot of people who are against it just because “God said so.” And to the people who are “for civil unions” but not “for lgbtq+ marriage”, you’re a joke. Don’t label our relationships as second-class and pretend we’re all equal.
HATE, because the other main reason people are against lgbtq+ marriage is because people just straight up hate the idea of it. It’s “unnatural”. It’s not “family friendly”. It’s not “the norm”. You can’t produce children so it’s not acceptable. It’s different, and people in this country hate different. And it’s very sad.
Whether Heterosexual or LGBTQ+, love is love. And everyone deserves the right to MARRIAGE. Not some Union/Partnership bullshit. We are not here for you to degrade us with your false equality.
Tl;dr One day, I will MARRY the person I love, whoever that person may be. And everyone who thinks that that is vile and foul and disgusting can go fuck themselves.
Enjoy my project. (I got 100% on it.)
This image is 2700 x 3600 (approx. 9in x 12in), with a ppi of 300. The files given are a HQ .jpg, as well as a FLATTENED .psd. This image was created solely by me and entirely in Photoshop CS5 and does not contain vectors.
Because I was dumb with my color profiling, any printing of this image may turn reds a little pinker than shown on your screen. (We printed them out in class and the reds ended up a little pink. It might have just been our printer, but I don't know.)
Feel free to note me with any questions pertaining to the image (i.e. it's creation process, and not it's idea) or the Seller Agreement at any time.
