Politicards Sweeping the Nation
By Bella Stumbo
A disheveled, determined Sen. John Tunney is caught primping painstakingly before his boudoir mirrorcomb guided by a nearby portrait of John Kennedy.Tricia Nixon, overwhelmed by a mass of blonde hair and an angelic smile, has become a Playboy bunny.
Gov. Ronald Reagan, reduced to a paroxysm of uncontrollable rage, grits his teeth, clenches his fists and stomps a hippie.
Martha Mitchell is lying abed with a telephone, a martini and whimsical grin; Lyndon Johnson, looking like a toothlessly benign granny, serves up a barbequed bomb on a bun, while Sen. Edward Brooke blithely chomps watermelon and J. Edgar Hoover lecherously peeps through somebody’s window.
And so on.
But all in jest, of course.
It’s only the latest bit of slick political satire to sweep the nation, winning the hearts of harpoonery hounds everywhere, threatening even the heretofore unchallenged throne of Spiro Agnew wristwatches.
They’re called, aptly enough, Politicards. Full decks of plastic-coated, non-frayable living-color playing cards, which bear the bitingly humorous caricatures of 50 percent of the country’s most powerful or prominent political figureseverybody from a rat-faced, ermine-clad Richard Nixon (king of spades) to an evil-eyed smirking Billy Graham looming over a flock of frightened sheep (5 of clubs).
In celebration of over 30 years of work, Peter Green Design has launched a mini-site which showcases pieces from the life of Peter Green and Peter Green Design. Randomly selected pieces under a range of categories (from movie posters to iconic retro products) were curated by the studio. Anecdotal commentaries have been provided by Peter to give behind-the-scenes insight.
NFL PLAYERS ASSOC. commissioned Peter Green Design (Glendale, CA) to create all of the unique imagery for the NFL PLAYERS Caricature line, its first exclusively licensed collection featuring illustrations of current NFL players on a combination of T-shirts, mugs, water bottles, school supplies and other non-apparel products.
