Leela the Riveter by Gulliver63 Leela the Riveter by Gulliver63
I'm still in this 1940's Warner Brothers kick, and what could be more iconic of that era but the famous Rosie the Riveter poster. Actually we picture Leela in the thick of the combat, but she could just as easily use a rivet gun for a 12-hour shift. Look at those cannons! BTW, here is the original Rosie done by J. Howard Miller in 1942 [link] for Westinghouse Company. It was truly fun doing this picture, as Corel let me use the same colors as are on the original poster. So just keep in mind that "we can do it" - what that might be is up to you. And remember - buy war bonds so Zapp can defeat those horrible Tarantuloids...

BTW, the original Rosie had a button with her daughter's picture on her collar...note the Nibbler button.

Thanks! Last year I got out of a terrible job situation...Leela was like my patron saint. I used to put her image up on whiteboards with the words "You gotta do what you gotta do." It was sort of like writing "Kilroy was here." [link]
