I have interpreted “Fear” as my propaganda technique, because the Japanese blood falling from the shot cup, it brings the attention to the american. My propaganda poster appeals to pathos, emotions, because the feeling the poster itself has its the great emotions of fear. Archetype used in this poster is the hero, the american, and encouraging people to join in U.S. and fight with them and be the “Hero”.  My design is drawn the way the “Hero” isn’t defined, which gives the audience mythical emotions who’s going to be the hero? and plant the mindset of they could be the one, the “Hero”. “Bottoms Up” and “Color’em Red” emphasis the definite victory or the trust in victory americans have. “Hero” holding the cup full of Japanese blood shows the over control of them and which gives more entertainments to the audience.

Animal Rights: Yulin Dog Meat Festival

December 12th, 2015

In America, 99percent of people raise pets and 70percent thinks pets as one of their family. However, in Yulin, Chinese people opened a dog meat festival where foreigners buy dogs and cook it alive. Now in China, eating pets are the cultural event and it is not against any law. But eating pets turned into a big issue because the dog meat seller started to kidnap pets. That kidnapped pets were caged in a small cage with 20 others pets. They weren’t fed properly and so many stolen household pets were starved to death.

Rationale:

These three different short comics are all based on my personal curiosity. Not only from my curiosity but also are based on my experiments. Theme are shown in my comics, which we learned in English.

 

My first comic is showing the students’ life in home. Parents have high expectation which students, us, might be struggling with. Still, too low expectation from our parents doesn’t mean we could do better, but if our parents want perfect grade, we struggle. Sometimes, over love is hurtful to us.

 

Second comic is based on my curiosity which is in the future there has one pill that could make us see through peoples’ minds. Many parents act strong and happy but they all have feelings and they all have time when they are upset. However, parents don’t show that because they only want us, children, to see happy, positive things. Also we have time when we are upset but don’t want to tell parents. Then we usually cry quietly in the room and act like nothing had happened. But with this pill, we could read others’ minds anytime. If you understand others, others would understand you.

 

Third comic represents the unfairness in this world. This story wasn’t my own idea but I drew it just to share with others. This story came from the real situation. The story goes like this: One man walking down the street, heard the sound of woman screaming from the dark. Man ran up to where the woman scream came from and saw other man trying to rape her. That man fought against the other man who was trying to rape a woman and won. Woman ran away and two men were there on the dark. Man who was trying to rape woman called the police and told the police that he got assaulted by one man. Man who protected a woman explained to police that he was trying to save the woman but there was no proof. Woman already ran away and there was no one to support. Man who saved woman had to pay money to the other man who tried to rape woman. In real life, there is no hero but only has criminals.

Lennie’s Interview and Rationale

November 16th, 2015


Rationale

I saw the movie about one guy, who was mentally issued when he was a baby. Reason why I am telling the story of “Dumb” man is because when we say someone is “dumb” it usually means that person can’t live without extra care. But him, he tried his best to along with other kids. Though Lennie, Steinback represents the people who need extra care. The “Dumb” man and Lennie had in common that the “Dumb” man only knew to run and Lennie only knew how to squeeze. What I am trying to get from the movie is that we call “Dumb people” has feelings and every second they are trying to survive. I will use Quicktime to record the interview, but only the voice.

“’I am a good skinner. I can rassel grain bags, drive a cultivator. I can do anything.”’ All of his preferred job requires strength, which shows that Lennie is strong as bull. However, he was treated poorly because he was too stupid to think and usually does bad things. When he talks about his dream, he enjoys imagining just like what little kids would do when they think about their dreams. He, Lennie, love George so much that he said, “’I could go off in the hills there. Some place I’d fine a cave.”’ George is Lennie’s everything. George is Lennie’s parent. Lennie obey him, love him and respect him just like other little kids. Reason why I am kept mentioning “little kids” is because Lennie is a little kid even though he is huge and strong as bull. He needs extra hands to take care of him.

“’ No. After then when she died…um… people die an’ no food an’ no money to stay there so we decided to leave.”’ People at the time didn’t know when people die from the starvation was called the great depression. They did know they were starving and they needed to move out from the country and get jobs in order not to die from the hunger. Lennie and George represented the migrant workers, who move out from their country to find the jobs. “’ Is working in ranch your first job?’ We worked in the weed before.”’ Lennie explains to the Interviewer that they’ve worked in different places, which shows the evidence of the great depression. Great depression effected the migrant workers, Lennie and George, because of great depression lose jobs and had to work in many different places.
