The Venus Project by SmokesQuantity The Venus Project by SmokesQuantity
The Assignment:
Make an 8.5"x11" poster for a "political cause". Use Illustrator and Photoshop.

The poster is for 'The Venus Project', which presents a new way of life for all of the world. One that uses a resource-based economy vs. the current monetary-based economy. Eliminating money as the main influence in our society will get us back to our human roots, where love, happiness, and creativity were the main priorities. > [link]

Also, The Venus Project is covered in great detail in the Zeitgeist 2 : Addendum documentary. I encourage anyone who is interested in opening their mind a bit to watch it here, free > [link]

Venus Project and Resource-Based Economy are the most wonderful and inspiring concepts I have stumbled upon. Peter Joseph did all of us a great service by giving the very first spark in bringing all those ideas into the light for the internet-age audience. 

Have seen this poster already - it is soo cleverly and intelligently designed. Exactly that poster made me realize that there is such thing like socially conscious art. Not just understand that there is art of that sort but to realize with all the brain! F..king whole brain. This one is the best to me poster dedicated to Venus Project and whole idea of RBE. 

Slightly surprised to randomly stumble upon the artist behind this poster here on DevArt. Here, have a juicy orange for that Orange 
Thaaat poster is spiritual and intellectual Masterpiece.

As someone who loved The Venus Project, I think this is great artwork, but it gives me a weird and discomforting feeling about the project.

Some other people online (elsewhere) have also commented on how this artwork looks like old propaganda artwork, and it kinda gives you that socialist / Illuminati feeling.

Very nice work, though.

I see where you're coming from with the discomforting feeling. This was done to have more of a propaganda feel to it. As much as it is a supporting piece for the great idea that is The Venus Project, it's also a personal project and has elements of the styles I like to design with.

Having said that, I still mean to revisit this poster and redesign it from the ground up. At this point, it's only an 8.5"x11" poster (not much of a poster at all, haha!). This was done in a few days and I know I could do the meaning of the movement justice with a proper amount of time.

Anyway, thanks for the comment!

Great work! While I have found quite a bit of Zeitgeist Movement related art on here, I have only found this piece where the Venus Project is represented. I sure wish that there were other artists tackling this subject matter as you have done. Do you or does anyone know of other resources for Venus Project-related artwork?

if I wouldn't know about the project I would have said those free building are nuclear power plants and the poster was made in 1967 or so.. :slow:

( you got to admit it has a classical feel to it) anyway nice job supporting the movement and hope you'll do more artworks and such :peace:

A super late reply... but... still valid.

I definitely didn't take this from anyone. I used source photography and concept art as a basis for my design, but everything was created by me. Please, check your facts before you start to making bogus allegations.

You label me a communist. I tend to think I'm open minded to new ideas. No one said this is THE end-all be-all solution to the world's VAST amount of problems. It's a solution none the less, so why don't you learn from it and take what you think applies to YOUR best solution (or are you just waiting for someone else to solve these problems for you?)?

The only solution is if everyone that is as quick to judge (like you were) learns to question everything and take all solutions into consideration (even communism *gasp!*). It's too easy for you to do otherwise. It's actually just lazy (I guess just as lazy as taking existing artwork and photoshopping your name into it... not naming anyone in particular).

Great art. Great concept. Great cause. Amazing movies. I've also seen Money Masters on Google Videos yesterday and it proves a lot of the banking control on the world... and it was done in 1995! Hope to see this brave new world come to fruition in my lifetime also. :+fav:

Sorry for the late reply... it's been a while.

Yea Zeitgeist 1 and 2 are pretttty crazy. It's really not too far fetched though. It's sad that people have so little faith in what the Human race can do.

I just ran across this video the other day: [link]
It's this dude Aaron Russo claiming that one of the Rockefellers came up to him months before 9/11, and told him how it was all going to go down. It's pretty interesting. Doesn't really shock me though, sadly.
