“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.” - Ernst Fischer

My Senator #1

If there's someone whose unswerving integrity and sincerity in bringing about real transformation in Philippine society I could personally vouch for, it would be Rep. Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel.

Pin Buttons and/or Lapel Stickers
All other stuff.

  • Hand-drawn, scanned and live-traced via Illustrator, then further edited with Photoshop.
  • The colors seems a bit drab, yah. But the idea was going vintage Russian poster art colors. I figure that brighter colors will flood the streets (literally) come election season and I so want this design to be set (way) apart from them.
  • Typography is inspired from a Latin American poster (or was it a book cover?): La Pobre (whose link I sadly could no longer find.)
  • I like that I was able to slip in A! (the oft-used, at least amongst its members, contraction for Akbayan) into the design. Akbayan is of course Risa's Party.
  • This is now free for all. At least for those who wish to spread the RISA love. Feel free to use & tweak (or pimp!) but please never for campaigns other than Risa's. For higher reso images, please email me at: pixel1982 (at) gmail (dot) com
