I just screamed out loud in the art class room when I saw how beautiful this drawing is. Ive been searching for a symbol or drawing to represent a small t shirt company formulated around out hyper consumer culture. May I, in honor of this remarkable picture, have the right to print this design on the shirts?

I have to do a senior project in order to graduate from my school. Junior year I have to write a paper that the project will go with. I have decided to do my research paper or freeganism. I was wondering if I could use this photo? You will receive credit in my cited page.

I agree, let's stop this, otherwise, if they ignore this, this symbol reminds me of a hanging.

I like the simplism and what it's trying to say, although to me, it could be misinterpreted as saying that simply buying anything is evil.

If the character had a hint of a tie, or a breifcase, I think it would be better at highlighting capitalism and being against the corporate world because to me it seems like the "guy" could be just anyone, and with the barcode it almost reads like simply buying anything is the cause of evil in the world. I don't know, that's just my spin on it.
However as a simple image on it's own, it is very powerful and simple and I still like it a lot :)

you and i are very different :P i, as a capitalist, see consumerism as an essential part of keeping the world running. although i don't necessarily believe in the message of this artwork, i do like the style and the way it clearly delivers the message. great work!
