    iPod posters

    This has probably already been done, but I did it on my own anyways. I'm not a fan of iPod's they've become a stupid trendy fashion accessory, and I needed to vent my anger. So I made some offensive iPod posters based on the actual advertising campaign. These weren't made to simply offend people just to get people to realize that buying an iPod to look cool is stupid.

    i understand your anger, but when I see your work I doesn’t understand if you was anger with Christ, police, or ipod. Unnecessary resource to explain you thing.

    Wouldn't Jesus having one be a plus to all iPod consumers? I really don't see the hate here.

    Jesus one is kind of scratchy compared to the police officers, over all nice concept I just don't see how there's real anger derived into this.

    If I'm not mistaken, the police officer is actually a silhouette of Hitler.

    And, on that note, I really like these. Does the jpod only play religious music?

    You know the Jpod reminds me of an onine editorial someone emailed to me awhile back about what Jesus is playing on his Ipod. Pretty funny.

    This is awesome for once I'm actually getting replies around here! I guess when you start posting offensive stuff people look. Yeah the second one is definitly Hitler. I suppose I should stick a raised arm on him so people know. Well I suppose these aren't really reflective of my anger towards iPod's, but it helped me vent. Instead of trying to make sense of how they reflect my anger towards iPod's I'll let the viewer interpret them how ever they please. I'm probably gonna do a couple more of these. A G. Bush one a Binladen or Sadam one and maybe a couple pop culture ones like super hero's and star wars characters. I'm kinda getting away from my original intent with these, but they're fun to make. You guys should give it a try.

    I see I'm not the only one sick of the Ipod craze. These are great.

    My only crits would be that the edges of the sillouhettes are too jaggy and in some cases blurry, and they hinder the readability of the characters. If they both had just a little more TLC they would really be slick. Still, I really enjoy these.

    GIMP !

    . . . ok, now that I've offended some people too, let me explain GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It's free image software, not sure how good its' paintbrush is but it's better than ms paint.

    I am answering this post largely because I am drunk.

    I believe the Jedi handbook states - that having an ipod is fine - it is developing an attachment to it that i forbidden.

    Yah, I have seen this cheesed on before, but not with Jesus carrying the cross - and what is the second one, a Nazi??


    ha ha

    I love my shiffle BTW.

    I certainly share your dislike for people who buy i pods because they are trendy, but if I didn't read what you wrote before I looked at the images, I would have no idea what you were trying to get across... Speaking of trendy, seems like throwing images or the Jesus Christ into things is the in thing to do these days.

    Well maybe the way I'm doing it isn't as quick as you would. I take an image cut and paste the item into a new paint window. Colour in as much as I can of the image by using larger paint tools. Then I have to colour in what I can't reach with the pencil tool. That last one took about 2 hours...if there is a quicker accurate method with paint let me know.

    would you give 3 monkey farts, perhaps? i really like that article you posted feeech, very well written and quite true. Playmobil Pimp, its a nice application of pop-art, though i think the huge canvases and empty space do nothing for them compositionally. nice concept, tho.

    Angry about ipods? Get a fricken life and an ipod, just to look cool!


    Maybe people are buying them to listen to music.


    Maybe you got a roxio pod or something and are jealous because you couldn't spring for the real deal...

    these look like you took photos of something and filled them up with black in paint then added an ipod and drew a cord... not much of a concept... anyways ipods are cool, and making fun of their ads is a cliche.

    check out this ipod

    feeesh -- cool article!

    Playmobil Pimp -- I think your images need one of two things:
    more movement or stronger silhouettes

    I'm no fan of Hitler, but he'd look cooler (and more appropriate for an iPod ad) if his right hand were raised, not in a sig heil but, in a heavy metal devil sign! That way the pose is a bit more Hitleresque and easier to read.

    Jesus would look more iconic if he were on the cross.

    R2D2 looks like something that iPod would use in one of their ads.

    No offense meant, but 2 hours seems awfully long to spend on each of these. Have you tried trace paper to make the outline, scan then open in MS Paint, then fill color? Should be much quicker.

    These aren't very good. The wires are done poorly and your compression is awful. You could save those as 5-6 colour dithered pngs, not lose any quality and save on image size majorly.
