Here is another pixel painting that I finished in July of this year. This image is actually one of the first images that I had used when I started the Associated Artists for Propaganda Research. The name came from a series of crudely made xerox promotional posters that I did in school all with a slogan, an image and a fake organization. The poster for the Hindenburg said “The Disaster Factor” at the top and on the bottom said Associated Artists for Propaganda Research. I don’t remember what the other posters said. I think there were 10 in all. Here’s an image of it:
I wanted them to be akin to DYI punk posters. Early AAPR promotional material all mimicked this style until I decided to give the operation a slicker and more professional look. At some point I’ll probably post a more concise history of the AAPR and the work that went along with it. Here’s a photo that I took of the Hindenburg painting. It’s called The Hindenburg Disaster, May 6th, 1937. Below it is a photograph of it in the studio from a slight distance. To the right is the painting The Death of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby, 1963.
