Justin Case was Civil Defence Canada’s cartoon mascot who promoted safety and preparedness in posters published in the 1950’s.
These eight posters are remixed to now focus on finding queer folks during Canada's LGBT Purge. The Cold War era design has remained and Justin Case is featured in each poster. The illustrations are sourced from 1950's and 1960's comic books, redesigned, hand painted, and scanned. The text is sourced from historical research.
