Deadpool 27 by Devilpig Deadpool 27 by Devilpig
J.C. Leyendecker. What more can you say about this genius? He was, and will always be THE MAN!!! Many artists have 'homaged' this poster before me. So when the editor of the book said "Do a cover like a propaganda poster" I knew that instant which one I wanted to parody. And, choosing to make fun of grown men and women running around with foam swords acting like elves and goblins was too funny NOT to do it. Sorry all you L.A.R.P.ers out there. Much respect.... and LIGHTNING BOLT!!!!

For all those in the dark about JC Leyendecker or L.A.R.Pers, here are some links...

And if it wasn't bad enough, my rival :iconurban-barbarian: has over taken me in Llama counts. All I'm asking is to reach "Fancy Llama" status before him. Is this TOO MUCH TO ASK!?!?! So if you like this post, do me a favor, give with the Llama action. And remember, a Llama for me is a Llama for FREEDOM!!!

I gave you a llama, don't worry :D
I love your work, I don't even know how did you make it like that in J.C. Leyendecker style! The coloring and stylization is just perfect!

I actually liked the version that said 'the big old ugly stick' on the stick better, that was great.

Im a Leyendecker nut. This deserves every lama you can get. Although I love Panosian too. I'm withholding any official endorsements for now, unless one of you has a viable plan for a colony on the moon.

This cover jumped out of July's Marvel Previews catalog because I work at The Haggin Museum, which has the largest collection of original Leyendecker art works. This poster is on display with them right now. Any fan of Leyendecker should check out [link]

Lyendecker is the MAN! They had an exhibit of his work in Fullerton a year or so ago. It was pretty amazing.

All I have to say about LARP is that it doesn't get any better than Dungeon Majesty.

I'm so proud of how many people know who Leyendecker is. In my American Illustration history class, 2 of the 17 students knew who he was. All of them knew of Rockwell though. Dang kids.

This is a wonderful nod to the master!

A buddy of mine likes inviting me and some other friends over to LARP fight in his parents' front yard, which is basically LARPing with all the silly roleplay elements removed: we stab, slash and beat each other with homemade foam armaments. Deceptively fun.

"I'm 23, why would you ask??" :p

Fav'ing this one. S'frickin' beautiful, man - standing on strong shoulders, you are.

Leyendecker was Rockwell before Rockwell (except where NR was narrative, Leyendecker was just iconic).

You are the first person on DA I have ever heard mention Leyendecker.

That's so cool--so few people know and appreciate Leyendecker. If this gets people to check out his work more, it'd qualify as a good deed on your part, and might make up for some of your alleged "barnyard shenanigans".

wow, dave! this has to be my favorte piece you've done. i love leyndeckers work. one of my teachers at the kubert school, (hy eisman of "popeye" fame) owns a leyndecker painting and he brought it in for us one day to show it around. it was a painting of a soldier for "the saturday evening post", but i never saw it in the recent leyndecker art book that was published last year.
