Veterans of Foreign Wars – Mural Design Ink and Digital

Prints Available

Originally a class assignment this piece was built up to be plastered to the side of a VFW post.  I wanted to give a sense of history as well as a sense of the present.  With a variety of silhouettes and aircraft types in a setting that has become all too familiar for our current service members.  The line advances with a countless number of troops moving ever forward.

The lines were done in ink originally and the colors digitally.  I pulled colors from an old NC Wyeth WW2 poster and played with the level of render to both feel painterly and be possible at the mural scale without too much issue.  I would love to see this as a full size mural some day.
