Keep Calm And Carry On

I am kinda getting into doing type posters myself now :D
i found this one over at and loved it so much i just had to redo it! :XD:
This was a World War 2 British Propaganda Poster, made for cheering up the people. You can sooo transfer this on our times today, it is pretty cool.
Let me know what you think :w00t:

hey sweets can i possibly use your piece as a print showcased in the Show Your Deviant Style Contest? It's not official that I'd actually use it, but gosh darn it I'd love to use it if I can. ^^

I saw a similar done in the style of the old Penguin Classics book cover. I prefer your used look rather than the too clean lines in the Penguin cover. The poster version was rather expensive too.

Since the financial melt down this classic poster has regain is meaning since so many people lost they livelihood and savings.
For many there world came crashing down. For some of us, life got a lot complicated.
Awesome work.

Would like to buy it in a larger print though, ever thought about offering it in different sizes?
Or is it possible to buy a high-rez copy from you and print it out on my own?
