Our Mission Statement/Request For Original Art

Who We Are

After my Solomon Stone punches Hitler pin-up hit the ISB, I've been inundated with new site hits, so I thought I'd take the time to reiterate this blog's mission and send out yet another request for reader submissions.

Hitler Getting Punched is an attempt to create a one-stop location for all your Hitler abuse needs here on this wonderful little internet. The vast majority of posts will, of course, be pre-existing anti-Hitler art from various sources, including comic books, propaganda posters, films, video games, or wherever it may be found. Preference in pre-existing subject matter is given in the following order:

  1. Hitler Getting Punched (the blog's raison d'etre)
  2. Hitler Getting Slapped
  3. Hitler Getting Kicked
  4. Hitler Getting Strangled
  5. Hitler Getting Stabbed
  6. Hitler Getting Otherwise Abused
  7. Hitler Getting Made a Fool Of
  8. Hitler Getting Denounced (Must be a particularly amusing denouncement)
We currently have a few dozen assorted pieces of artwork that fall into this category. And of course, we try to give credit where credit is due. If you see any work that is not fully and correctly sourced, by all means, please let us know by contacting me at HitlerPuncher @ gmail . com. If you are the copyright holder of something that appears here, by all means let us know if you want it taken down. We're here to promote Hitler-Punching, not turn a profit on the labors of others.

Original Works

This is an area we would love to expand our scope. I've created a couple of original works for this site already, and have received a few submissions from readers. But I would like more. A lot more. In fact, the only thing that will get preferential treatment over a classic Golden Age image of Hitler getting punched in the face is an original piece of Hitler Punching artwork submitted by you, the reader. Because I think the Hitler Punching Project (as I just decided to name it) should be a community event. I can't punch Hitler alone, people. Well, I can. But trust me, we can ALL punch Hitler together.

Submission Guidelines:

  1. Create an original work of Hitler-abuse in any medium you'd like. These can include, but are not limited, to any of the following:
  • Drawing
  • Painting
  • Photoshop
  • Poem
  • Fanfic
  • Video
  • Song
  1. Send said material to HitlerPuncher @ gmail . com

  2. Include the name you would like to be credited with, as well as any information about the piece that you want in the post. If you have a website, by all means give the link.

  3. That's actually pretty much it.

  4. Oh, and your perceived level of "talent" is NOT an issue here. We want submissions from anyone and everyone. A stick figure done in crayon that is still recognizably Hitler getting punched is just as valid a form of expression as the finest piece of professional artwork. In this case it really is the thought that counts.
Of course, we can't actually pay for these submissions, unless you don't mind getting HGP Fun BucksTM:

Not accepted as legal tender anywhere except my heart.
However, speaking from personal experience, drawing Hitler getting decked is, in many ways its own reward.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, our wordiest post to date. I promise the next one will have less reading and more Fuhrer-abuse.
