Amy and Anna Political Poster by PaulSizer Amy and Anna Political Poster by PaulSizer
This was a commission piece done as a tongue-in-cheek parody from the novels of Valis and Radio Free Albemuth around 1976, both written by Phillip K. Dick. 

They involve a right-wing populist movement called "Friends of the American People" (FAPers), where they are a civilian police force that not only police the populace but also perform at rallies to 'encourage' patriotism.

The poster features cheerleader Amy "Almonds" Langston, a member of the "FAPpers", (Friends of the American People), and their slogan "Here to lead the way!"  She is the Head section leader of the Apple Dumpling Squad Writing District, Writing PA.

The other girl is her sister, majorette Anna "Walnuts" Langston, a member of DAHL, Daughters of the American Heartland, and their slogan "Steadfast and Dependable".  She is the Head Majorette of the Dallas Arts District, Dallas Texas.

I was asked to make the poster look like an older American political poster, and to render the two girls in a more "wholesome, Good Girl style"

Heh, yea, I laughed myself but let me quote where I got it from this link. [link]

"The character is best described as an amalgam of Joseph McCarthy and Richard Nixon, who abrogates civil liberties and human rights through positing a conspiracy theory centered around a (presumably) fictitious subversive organization known as "Aramchek". In addition to this, he is associated with a right-wing populist movement called "Friends of the American People" (FAPers)."

Nice work Paul, Grade A stuff. I would commission you again.

Absolutely loved the VALIS trilogy as a teen.

Excellent work, Sizer.
