FarmVille appears on the frontlines in Facebook war propaganda poster
Read Full Story
It's been a long time since I was taught about the victory gardens
of the World Wars in school, but something about them still reverberates. "Bring in the victory harvests! Get your farm in the fight! Farm work is war work!" are slogans from real American war propaganda posters.
Flash forward nearly 70 years later, and we've got FarmVille
on Facebook. Those wars are long over, but the farm is no less a part of everyday life thanks to social gaming, and Aaron Wood's awesome social network propaganda posters
are a testament to that. Here's all three below:
Right now, these are just pieces of concept art, which Wood shared on his Google+ profile, but fingers crossed that he'll translate these into purchasable posters, like others have done with similar social media propaganda-style designs
. My cubicle is in desperate need of fresh art.
It looks like Wood is actually selling these designs as posters on Etsy
, but they are currently all sold out. He seems to be updating his G+ profile
when new ones are in stock. (Thanks, Leah!)
