r-evol-ution by devils-horizon r-evol-ution by devils-horizon
A T T E N T I O N
For all those who can't seem to quite comprehend, or have the capacity to read the comments before them. Go check my front page... I'm from the United Kingdom. I don't know who Ron Paul is, I'm not American, nor do I want to be [no offence to those who are. I love being English!] I don't take an interest in my own country's governmental system let alone that of another countries!

This is NOT taken from Mr. Ron Paul's campaigne...
Because up until today, I had never even heard of the guy. So to say the least, I don't appreciate comments that imply that I have 'stolen' this 'thing' from him. I've removed the comments from this piece, because of all the shit that I was getting from particularly ignorant people.



IN THE OLDEN DAYS, THEY WOULD CUT THIEVES HANDS OFF AT THE WRIST. TAKE MY ART, EVER, AND I WILL CLEAVE YOURS OFF WITHOUT MERCY!!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

"....... I used to be my own protection, but not now
Cause my path had lost direction, somehow
A black wind took you away, from sight
And held the darkness over day, that night

On A Valentine's Day ..."

Behind this image;; Just playing around with designs that I might have my best friend's sister paint on my wall. While making this one I had three others in production and this was the one that bounced the most. The 'L' is supposed to be backwards to produce the word 'love' in the middle of revolution, which i'm sure you can see!

wow that looks really cool! and way better than ron paul who is actually extremely annoying but may i ask (and im really not trying to start a fight) what have you got against americans? cause we're not all rude like that "joshlore" guy above
it just seems like an odd excuse to me.... i hope you don't mind my asking. :)

It's not your fault that your idea was all ready done, expect your art is much much much better than that within Ron Paul's campaign. I definitely see the similarity, but you are by far the better artist.

Oy. =_= I absolutely love this. I'm sorry you're having to put up with people's stupidity on this. As a student of design and typography, I think this is wonderful!

I'll never understand people...Congrats to Ron Paul for being the hundredth person to spot the word love in there (yeah sarcasm. Guilty.) But that's a little bit of a far cry from turning it into a beautiful design like this. Some ridiculous slogan is NOT an original piece of art. It takes talent to create something like this. Doesn't matter what old politician used two common english words already (*gasp* Scandalous.) :) Very nice work, though. I love this. Great concept, great design. Beautiful overall. :D

I like it. And I *love* that song. And a quick question, was it intended to be love backwards and in red?

said by someone who; Oh look... is an American! Be-head me? F*ck no... you'd just use the electric chair! But maybe you missed the part of 'no offence' which would generally mean ignorance and unfortunately I can't help you there, my arm doesn't stretch that far to help your head out of your own arse! Now if you have nothing better to do than slag people of on artwork then I guess you really are a sad excuse for a human being. A typically 'normal' suggestion. F*ck off and get a life!

I may see this stapled to every other streetlight here in Forida.....but I like your use of it better. Besides, they say whenever an idea is given to the world two people get it, and it's a race to see who gets noticed for it first. As far as the states go it seems you got the short end of the stick, but again, I think it's more meaningful form an actual artist than form some political slogan generating bastard x3
