Cabbage Merchant Propaganda by AeroJett Cabbage Merchant Propaganda by AeroJett
I've seen a handful of other Avatar: The Last Airbender propaganda posters around here, but they mostly seemed to be directly war-oriented and I wanted to do one more like the home front propaganda on topics like supporting American industry, recycling, war bonds, etc. So I made a Cabbage Merchant poster! :P

The text should translate to:

"SUPPORT THE EARTH KINGDOM!

BUY FROM LOCAL MERCHANTS TO KEEP OUR ECONOMY STABLE!"

The fine print at the bottom reads:
"This poster paid for by the Cabbage Merchants' Union of Ba Sing Se."

I made the pic to be mostly in Earth-Kingdomy tones. Might could make the writing at the top pop out a bit more, but meh, it's a quick fanart thingy.

Screenshot of Cabbage Merchant is from Avatarspirit.net, edited in Photoshop CS4 by me. Paper texture was a freebie from somewhere on the Internet.
Avatar: The Last Airbender and the Cabbage Merchant made by Mike and Bryan. Copyright Nickelodeon. Cabbages introduced to Earth by Viacom.

EDIT: Changed some quibbles I had with the image.

The bg reminds me of the Japanese flag.
Hahah the Chinese reads a little funny but the gist is there xDD;

Actually, that is indeed the rising sun flag, just with the hue changed lol
And yeah, Google's translator told me one thing, but then I changed it to alternate characters because they looked better aesthetically. I took one of those artistic liberties I suppose. =D

He's amongst the high-ranking recuring gags in animation, sitting on a gold pedestal with the three old guys from Cowboy Bebop and the random black cat from Trigun. =D
