DescriptionThis is a photograph I took of an old screen printed metal plaque poster I found nailed to a door which depicts a striking graphic message from Uncle Sam. Since taking the shot, I've researched that this was issued to help recruit troops during World War l & ll and was at one time considered the worlds most recognized poster image. James Montgomery Flagg is the famous american artist who created the original artwork which appears to have been greatly simplified to just a few colors when used for metal poster printing. If you look closely above ARMY the artist's name can be recognized. My chosen print size is close to that of the actual metal poster.
Jon Blumenaus, Woodstock Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement Shortly after I graduated from the Bradford Regional College of Art in Yorkshire, England, I emigrated to the USA in 1971 to further my career in design. Now in my retirement years I'm finding more time to have fun creating decorative colorful inspirational images that stir and excite the senses.
