In the style of artist Shephard Fairy who created that iconic work of President Barack Obama, I am offering an image of Mao Zedong. However, let me state clearly that I am no fan of this dictator and despot. Mao’s policies and political purges from 1949 to 1975 are widely believed to have caused the deaths of between 50 to 70 million people.

I took a public domain image of this individual and colored it red… tweaked saturation and contrast…….. it seemed appropriate that red is the colour of communism and of blood.

This will make a great T shirt design.. college kids seem to want to make a statement when they wear images such as this….
