Dyslexic Traffic Sign with Obama. Member reactions:
Great chop, but just personally I feel the cross-eyed and toothless look adds a cliche feel to it
Thanks. I guess you are not a MAD magazine fan are ya. Perhaps it is an American thing. Alfred E. Neumann is a timeless icon and about the highest form of Western satire as it gets. You may not like it but MAD fans will love it which is the target audience in this case.
TY Eric. The "Fat Bob" tank gives it long range between stops
Excellent tecnique even if I don't like excessive caricature
Congrads of the Gold Cup, the best of the bunch.
Congrats Hitman. Fantastic interpreted twist to the theme. I feel your chop is spot on absolutely nothing excessive here.
As always, Top Notch Chop. Congrats Hitspinner.
Gold Congrats, Hitspinner. The Best so far young Obama for FreakingNews Contest.
Congrats on the gold, Hits. I missed the Alfred likeness at first. Newmann's eyes are not crossed though and the tooth is missing on the other side.
Since it's almost Halloween time, have you ever wondered what if we could change all traffic signs just for Halloween? Imposing speed limits for different flying creatures, and warning of the dangers ahead, such signs could certainly make Halloween safer, and more organized :)
Photoshop any existing traffic signs into Halloween/ Horror traffic signs, or design some new traffic signs with a Halloween / Horror theme. Many thanks to thekillerbee for the themepost.
Traffic signs around the world follow international protocols first developed by the Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals in 1968. This multilateral treaty was designed to increase road safety, especially for drivers, who travel across countries.
Create images of unusual traffic signs or roadside signs that cities around the world might display. Many thanks to JannaR for the themepost.
The photo for today's contest was taken this Saturday near the Sydney Exhibition Centre, where the science-fiction convention "Oz Comic-Con" is held. That explains the astronaut on a pedestrian crossing. "That's one small step for man... hold on Mission Control, I see the stop sign!"

Traffic lights as we know them today have been following the international standards set in the 1950s - the red light above the green, with yellow between. While the traffic lights for vehicles remained the same since then (only added countdown timers on them), many specific forms of traffic lights were introduced through the years - for pedestrians, for cyclists, as well as for public transport. These additional types of traffic lights differ quite a bit from country to country.
Redesign existing traffic lights any way you wish - re-shape, re-color, re-number them, or design traffic lights for any specific groups of traffic or commuters (for trucks only, for rockets, for pirates, for women, for children, etc.). These are just some ideas.
Many thanks to lucianomorelli for the themepost.
The situation in Ukraine keeps getting worse. Putin got the authorization from Russia's parliament to deploy Russian troops into Ukraine, to "protect its interest in Crimea and protect the Russian population there". While, formally, no Russian troops have been deployed in Crimea yet, Russia used its troops stationed at the Black Sea Fleet base to gain total control of the Crimean Peninsula. The local Ukrainian troops defected, joined Russian forces, and pledged to the Crimean authorities who demand independence of the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine. Russian military units are freely moving on the roads of Crimea with noone to stop them. Do they have to follow the traffic rules too?
Photoshop traffic/road signs designed for military units (for infantry, navy, or air force). The signs can warn of the dangers ahead, show info, or show some restrictions and rules for military units to follow.
You are welcome to show your signs at some scenery or just on their own.
