ArtPolitic - McAddict by n0deal ArtPolitic - McAddict by n0deal
Submission to the ArtPolitic release #4, I Addict.

The concept behind this piece was to explore western culture's addiction to modern conveniences and wound up as a media-jammed ad of sorts. I took a photograph of a McDonald's billboard and manipulated it from there. Created in Photoshop 7.

Now... would you like fries with that? ;) (Wink)

I love it...the composition, the blatant use of the logo and its alignment with the tradition of McDonalds.
Here's summit you'll find interesting.... I joined the US Navy (Hooyah Navy!) and my job is in the Medical Field (Hooya Hospital Corps! ITs more honourable than other jobs) We have to march all the way to the hospital to get sucks... And we have a galley in the hospital...well right before you enter the galley there is a friggin' McDonald's! Those bastards are playing with my military emotions recruit!

I never did like McDonald's, so I didn't need to see "Supersize Me" to swear it off. :XD: Great pic though! :+favlove:

As a matter of fact, I've done the same thing. I saw Super Size Me a year or so ago and I haven't had a bite of McDonald's since. :)

Haha nice. That's so weird because I decided to give it up today, and then saw this...I love mcd's so much, I don't know why. It's so not satisfying once you have it, too, it's just the smell. I guess most people think it smells gross though...
i will quit!
really great image :]

good work. You should be reading Adbusters, if u aren't already
n0deal Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've been a fan of Adbusters for awhile but I'd never actually bought a copy for myself. You got me thinking about how I've been meaning to get a subscription for the longest time, so I did. Hopefully have my first issue in a couple weeks. :)

4rayne Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2003
It's so true, too. As a worker, I see the same people go through day after day after day. They truly are addicted to the 47 second convieniences that they can afford.

passenger-nq Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2003
Haha, this is sooo great! I used to be kind of addicted some time ago when there was a Mc Donald's in my street. Then they made a chinese fast food reastaurant out of it. I was so sad. But then privation of big macs made a free man out of me...

I call that company McDirt!

...certainly because of the bad food, but even more because of their addictive product identity!
