Dear public servants, (republicans and democrats), partisanship sucks. You can't perform your best when you're wearing 2 right shoes or 2 left gloves. There's a lot of stuff to fix around here. You're supposed to be working for the people not donkeys and pachyderms. United we stand, it's in the pledge, look it up.



Simulated process print, water based ink would work best, I think. Should be 5 screens, white, 2 blues, red, and gray.

this is really an amazing illustration.
the only problem is -- the contest is about democracy in general, not just America!

Thanks for the great comments.

^Jellyes, I was going by the contest wording, "... as us citizens of the US will assemble this November to choose officials to represent us, we'd like you to nominate (submit) your design based on the concept of democracy!" I got America out of that, but hey ^boogles noted that the color arrangement in the illo is the Luxembourg flag design. There's also Australia, England, France, the Netherlands, Iceland, Norway and a few other red/white/blue, flag-bearing democracies out there.

Yes, I know I'm squirming. :P

I agree completely with this submission and I think the concept is illustrated perfectly. Way to pull a wonderful depiction of democracy out of your brainwaves at the last moment and turn in one of the best demo subs so far!

I really like the washed out colors, looks great! You can tell you took the time to really think about the theme, which is nice.

Thanks, thanks, thanks :D

Thistlethumper

the ONLY problem with this is that it might be mistaken for France, something I will never let happen to aMURica!

@Thistle
It could be mistaken for Australia, England, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Iceland, Norway, Panama, Martinique, Chile, Puerto Rico, and a few other red/white/blue, flag-bearing democracies out there. What's your point?

[+duracell-]

Thats a pretty sweet idea. It's a shame that I missed this during scoring, I would have given you a 5.
