At first when I saw the "Keep Calm and Obey" layer I immediately thought of the OBEY street art but I didn't choose to use it for 2 reasons: 1) I didn't feel as if it were a meme in the strictest sense and 2) I didn't want to use OBEY again (someone used it for their beg borrow steal). So I tried to find something that evoked the same sort of intimidating feeling and couldn't really think of a meme that fit that theme and I stumbled upon the Obama Hope poster meme. It didn't have the right feel but with the right grumpy cat image I felt like it easily could. I wanted to manipulate this meme to take it from a message of hope and inspiration and follow the intimidation and obey theme that I felt from the "Keep Calm" layer.
