So… I actually composed this meme back in January, in time for the Inauguration… but recent events have made it perhaps even more relevant today so I’m finally getting around to putting it on the blog. I still have a lot of stuff that I’ve done this year that never managed to make it to the blog, but I’m starting to try and catch up!
I did post this on Facebook back then, to mixed reactions… including at least one Donald Trump supporter who didn’t “get it” apparently. I thought it was a pretty good parody of the Independence Day movie poster, juxtaposed with reaction to last year’s Presidential election here in the US. Nothing super-profound or anything… just an obvious jab. 🙂 It’s a mixture of bits from the original movie poster and some heads of appropriate political figures (Mike Pence, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin) that I found on the Internet to mash-up together in Photoshop.

Once again, one of those ideas popped into my head and I was amazed to be unable to find any evidence of it already having been done… so I did it last night, just in time for April Fool’s Day!
A nice mashup of everyone’s favorite green lady M & M and the Ghost in the Shell. Recent promotions for the new live-action movie, starring Scarlett Johansson, are what got this idea going. Truth be told, though, the parody here is drawn from the original anime movie poster design more so than anything to do with the modern remake.
I intentionally skimped on the cityscape at the bottom, it’s just a silhouette to set the stage and to honor the layout of the original poster design. The shades rest a little low on M’s face, ‘cause she doesn’t seem to have a nose! 🙂 I also like the simple repeating pattern I came up with for the background to echo the simulated tech background of the original poster.
