For Sale: Election 2116: I’m Ready for Ripley!
Over here in the USA, the next election isn’t until November of 2016, but the campaigning began weeks ago. Possibly months ago. We are all sick of it… But then a brilliant idea occurred to me: what if we all voted for Ellen Ripley, the hero of the Nostromo (and LV-426)?
This design is inspired by the unofficial “I’m Ready for Hillary” logo. This art (and variations of it) is available on dark & white shirts, in men’s AND ladies’ sizes! AND pins, stickers and posters. Go forth!
*AND a minor footnote for the pedants: I chose the title lieutenant (Aliens) rather than warrant officer (Alien) because the abbreviation “Lt.” is immediately recognizable, whereas “WO.” is far less well known. Additionally, I’m using a modified Weylan-Yutani winged sun graphic because it looked better than the WY logo from Aliens when they were colored red, white and blue. Additionally, I am using the Weylan-Yutani ‘teal’ color in place of the Obama ‘light blue.’ AND, I know that the chronology of Aliens places the events in Alien around 2122, not 2116. I just wanted to make a little joke.
