The face on the center one is totally channeling racist cartooning.
see. Not appropriate in my opinion although im sure you didn't realize it.

Ryder

hahahaha, wow....wow....calm down deetzes. i can assure you weston's not a racist

I dont think its totally channeling anything, that is, but awesomenesssss!

I'm totally serious guys, that is classic racist cartooning. If you're not familiar google it.

I'm not trying to attach you westicles. I like the design but i do feel it channels unsavory imagery.

What on Earth... I assure you this is not in any way supposed to "channel" racism. I don't google racist cartoons so I wouldn't know what one looks like. I guess it's a very unfortunate coincidence?

briancook
briancook profile pic Alumni

I don't think you have anything to worry about, Westie. I can see what she's saying and it is because of the red lips on the black figures (she's thinking it looks like the "black face" performance actors) - however, I've looked at it a ton of times as you were working on it and never had an issue - if you're worried about it just change the lips to a different color when it prints! :)

Thank you Chengui for at least acknowledging what am talking about.

thedeetzes
thedeetzes profile pic Alumni

i'm just saying that i see familiarities between the face of the center character and these racist cartoons commonly found decades ago.


heykimby

From what I understand, racist cartoons are intended to make fun of someone's race. I really don't see how anyone could be offended by this? It's not a caricature or demeaning in any way!

thedeetzes
thedeetzes profile pic Alumni

It's not the actions depicted in the design it's the history that that style of animation holds. It's the equivalent of depicting a Jew as a rat with a big nose like they did during the war in the late 30's.

mgill52

the deetz, you need to do this somewhere else, like your blog, not on the freakin design.

briancook
briancook profile pic Alumni

Yes - please keep the comment here focused on the FRICKIN' AMAZING DESIGN that Westicles has created.

robotwaste

"depicting a Jew as a rat"

Does that mean "Maus" is racist?

If that is your only objection to this design, Deetz, then you needn't have made such a big deal about it. You could have pointed this out to Weston without accusing the design of being racist, intentionally or not.

this racism thing is working out great for his comment count

keep it going, the west tickles will get like 400 comments on the first day

thedeetzes
thedeetzes profile pic Alumni

Agreed. I do think it's beautiful work. like Chengui said, maybe tweak the face of center one if it goes to print.

Ryder
Ryder profile pic Alumni
