I had a go at reworking my Uganda anti gay policy poster which represent the President Museveni sweeping the gay population into a dustbin. In fact Uganda has thankfully, since the creation of this poster, repealed the policy on the grounds of a lack of quorum in government.
Still, I thought I would try to respond to the ideas from my tutor. My favourite idea was to play with the idea of adding different kinds of moustache to Museveni. I found this great website about dictators’ moustaches (most Western dictators in history seem to have had them) and had the idea of having cut-out able moustaches at the base of the poster to be pinned onto the President, like ‘pin a tail onto the donkey’. On reflection, though, I felt I wanted to crack on with the course rather than remaking preoccupied with this section. An idea to use in the future perhaps? (I like the idea of interactive artwork, like the photoboard of a seaside I created for my illustration course).
Meanwhile I tried adjusting the size of the text on the poster as suggested by my tutor. I do think this improves the poster, as the image is so dominant.
I tried several alternatives, but this is the best one I think. I think the red text works better than black, and the position at the bottom is discrete enough, while still being readable. Other attempts further below.
