Join the Marines by ninjaink Join the Marines by ninjaink
This is a retro-modern rendition of Howard Chandler Christy's famous female Marine poster. The idea came from my friend and fellow artist John Liem: illustrations by me.

Posters such as Christy's helped win wars: we are not quite as ambitious, but we hope to instill some hope with our work.

Prints are available. Please support our troops!

Thank you, and God bless. :)

Seeing as the Jewish population is only around 1% of the US, but accounts for 20% of funding for political parties I would say that the American public are the real idiots. Or just bring the draft back and that take care of the problem too.

Outstanding, what a great twist on a classic piece. And as a Marine, I think its great the our girls are getting a little credit. Those girls are doing some great things in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thank you for creating something honest, and enjoyable.

This is awsome, i'm female and i'm joining the Marines. Its nice to see stuff like this since we are under represented in the corps. even if it is kind of false advertisement cause females cant actually fight in the front lines... Either way, thank you for this, it keeps us girls motivated!

I GUESS you could join the Marines. That's an option some people might choose, I mean, if like the Army is full or something.

Great stuff, regardless! I love anytime you do something like this.

Well, I'm convinced. Or at least partially - I seriously doubt the old ticker would let me join up. :hmm:

At any rate, a great piece of art (as always), and a real fine concept for an actual recruiting poster (one can only hope). A definite :+fav: on my part. :)
