OK

A week I ago I published an essay connecting past political poster art and the proliferation of such posters by today's Occupy movement.  A couple of days later, I posted Part II with a boatload of more images. In Part III, I've added another 60-odd posters, with about half originating in cities where Occupy has an active presence.

As in the previous parts, I couldn't find the names of many artists/designers of the posters I've included here. But I am eager to give credit to the women and men who donated their time to creating these posters and helping the movement make its voice heard. So if you (for sure) know who the artist of a particular poster is, please message me and I will add the her or his name. Much of the Occupy poster art is original, and attached to names like Shepard Fairey, Eric Drooker, Favianna Rodriguez, Lincoln Cushing and other noted graphic artists. But you'll also see the likes of priceman, a longtime Kossack who has created some notable Occupy posters himself.

A web search or attendance at a march or other protest will turn up posters from New York City and Austin and Indianapolis that are derivative of artwork and design from Oakland and Chicago and Kansas City. Images have often been transformed in ways to make them resonate with local populations, address local issues and add other local flavor. In this batch, I've sought to avoid repeat images and publish as many originals as I can without overburdening readers' bandwidth.

If you are interested in further information and seeing other posters, I recommend Occuprint, Social Design Notes, Design History and Art for a Change. If you're in the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend a trip to the extraordinary Center for the Study  of Political Graphics. They have an open house scheduled for Dec. 3.

Other places to check in are Occupy Design: Building a Visual Language for the 99%, the Propaganda Remix Project, Political Loudmouth, the fabulous Just Seeds Artists Cooperative, Robbie Conal and Conal's extremely useful Guerrilla Etiquette + Postering Techniques.
