Another "Keep Calm" shirt for your collection! British propaganda produced during WWII.

I think it's awesome, but pretty pop cultury.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

I'll tell you what's blinding me. Keep Calm slogan shirts with just a tiny minor graphic element.

ARGH my eyes, it BURNS!

Aw, but the original poster has only one simple graphic element. It's ok, I just threw this together last night in between teaching and back to school night. I'm working on other designs for this week! So many ideas!!! :D

I'll be OK, some eye drops should clear this right up.

new rule... entries must be at least 75% picture not words. -_-'
besides... isn't this breaking the pop culture rule?

YAWN! I'm not seeing the WWII propaganda poster in this design. Actually I've seen this "Keep Calm" in almost every derby. Isn't this pop culture anyway?

I think today that I will submit every science term I can think of on a "Keep Calm" shirt. I want to make everyone so sick of "Keep Calm" that we never have to see it in the Derby again. A dream I know.

I understand your pain. No disrespect to the artist, but I think this idea is overdone. And while I do realize it is a parody of a WWII propaganda poster, it doesn't scream propaganda in the same way that designs like "Birds of Prey" do.
