These are my historical “gig” posters that I made for a school project. I really enjoy music, concerts, album covers, etc. and history so I thought it would be funny if I gave historical figures a concert poster based on their names or policies. I also gave them their own genres of music based on what their policies and names fitted best.
Napoleon Born-2-Party is rave/dance/techno, and the cancelled “gigs” are the battles that he lost
Bismarck’s “Blood Und Iron” is rock-opera
And FDR’s “Alphabet Soup” is hip-hop/rap
The illustration I did a couple months ago for @born-to-make-history-zine! I wanted to draw Yuri being a dumb tourist in St Petersburg lolool. It was really fun drawing this, so glad I got to be a part of this project!
This Day in History: Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United Sates. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.
