Call to Action: Pokemon, Halo, and Others Get Propaganda Art

Aaron Wood is an Etsy shop owner with a knack for creating simplistically designed propaganda posters for some of today’s most famous pop culture genres. One that he’s focused on is the video game space, and the popular franchises that have inhabited it since the 80’s. Wood has created a series of video game inspired propaganda posters on 11×14 sheets of paper and sells them for the very low price of $12.50.

His collection includes homages to Pokemon, Halo, Super Mario Bros., Skyrim, Assassin’s Creed, and a few other mainstream titles. Each features iconic imagery from the game and a saying that speaks to the game’s narrative, but also in a manner that’s reminiscent of the war time propaganda from WWII. A few of his video game propaganda posters can be found after the break, but these pieces deserve to be seen in their true glory by ordering one for yourself from Wood’s Etsy store. The sheer nostalgia is worth the meager $12.50 investment.
