Cookie by NearMissCoalition Cookie by NearMissCoalition
Unearthed recently from underneath a disco in Istanbul, this woodblock print is part of a propaganda campaign from the little known, yet greatly important "Chip's Ahoy Revolution." Roughly translated, it says "Eat Cookies or We Will Shoot Your Head." Truly, a sad chapter from a bleak period in history.



(****clarification: my little blurb of fiction above seems to have confused some people-- No I did not find this in Istanbul, Yes, i did in fact make it- right here in super-exotic Kansas City. The blocks were carved into Cherry wood with an Xacto #11 blade and printed on a Vandercook SP-15 Letterpress... I have original, hand printed versions of these for sale for $20 plus shipping, available in several color schemes!)

Some people, just don't have any vision. They can't see how you connected the whole cookie idea into you piece and that's all you meant by it. Great Work, I love the BOLDNESS of it

I love propaganda art, and I love the rustic-esque feel of this piece.

Clever punny joke on chips ahoy story.

I guess I'm a bit confused...did you make this or just find it? Your description leads me to believe you found it, which makes me wonder why everyone is saying 'good job'...

I mean I really like it, it's just that people shouldn't be praised for work they didn't do.

Oh good lord this is amazing. I've always been a sucker for vintage propaganda-like prints and this is just brilliant. I love the colors and weathered texture.

Heck, they don't need to threaten me to get me to eat cookies. Though I appreciate the fact that they're willing to make posters to express that.

Yes Indeed, a sad, sad chapter. But oh, how I miss being part of the revolution. A clear vision shared by many, a struggle, no a war, for freedom!! A common purpose that united the youth. Viva Chips Ahoy!!
