(Aside from living like a teenager,) My relevant interests are art, design and film/animation. Artistic influences include Pop Art (Lichtenstein & Warhol), Street Art (Banksy & Flying Fortress) and more particular artists, such as Jeffrey Smart & Brett Whiteley.
The image itself was adapted from a Soviet Poster advertising the 1926 film/novel "Predatel" or, in English, "The Traitor". The film was distributed by the State Cinema, presumably for the purposes of propaganda. The poster can be viewed at: http://www.earthstation1.com/Warposters
