A small problem... by lordzasz A small problem... by lordzasz
An art project I'm working on for a small environmental awareness art show.

Trying to do something very stylized, yet fun. Since this is for a small show, I would like any feedback, positive or negative that you might have!

My thought is that a lot of people think climate change isn't anything to worry about, and that the things they do don't make a big difference. (Hence, the monster appearing cute). But, the truth is climate change is a huge issue that affects the whole world, and all the little things that we do add up to one huge problem.

Hence, giant kaiju monster time. He's too cute to destroy, but hopefully we can shrink him, and our impact to the environment, down to a manageable size.

im going to give the positive and negatives to this.

because the message for this is political, i must say that its more about the impact then anything else, so that should possibly be the biggest thing to worry about. that and vision, the other 2 dont matter at all really.

the impact i marked as low, because while it IS part of a larger show so it will have far more context besides "oh a giant monster attacking the world" but here it really dosnt have that context, i thought it really was just a picture of a giant monster attacking the world XD

also the caption confused me "not a small problem anymore" i thought this implied that the giant monster was causing the climate change, and since it wasnt explained what the monster actually represented i had no idea what it was meant to mean.

the monster being cute kinda diminishes the idea that its dangerous, and while you said its meant to imply that "our own small imprint isnt really important" it just seems to lack the strong "WE MUST STOP THIS" that most posters like this have.

on the positives side *i gave a lot of negatives first sorry*

anyway on the positive side it IS a valid environmentally expressive poster that will be quite attractive to younger people.

i think that the cute monster would get people to actually want to see it without the harshness of "we are doomed unless you give up everything" that a lot of posters have, so its more accepting of people to want to look at.

thats where this has its strength, its pleasing to look at! something you rarely see in a political poster, and the best way to spread information is to make it widely acceptable and appealing to people (especially young people)

thats why its illegal for cigarette companies to make cartoons anymore right?

and why most environmental based ads are made by anthro animal people. smokey the bear anyone?

the KIDS are who you have to get into this kind of stuff, the adults are usually already swayed for or against, but get this poster in kids rooms and you may just have a lasting effect on the generation.

anyway as a general political poster i think this would have a weak impact, but with kids i would say this could be VERY popular.
What do you think?
