Victoire Absinthe may be a dame, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have political ideals! She’s a red blooded American at heart- her brother was in the military, and she can’t help but agree with the “Better Dead Than Red” propaganda swelling through out the country. She saw this little number on the side of a convince store in the outskirts of Milwaukee. She was walking back to her hotel from the dance hall, where she worked periodically. She was tired of writing, and wanted to try something different.
In creating this image, I fundamentally didn’t want to do something boring. I like the shocking, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I feel that forcing something usually doesn’t work. So! I found the background image (while looking for desktop images to be perfectly honest) and I found some Americana images and it just kind of came together. I use http://www.picmonkey.com when I edit pictures. It’s actually really nice, easy, and fun.
