Remember not that they died but what they died fighting for.
Remember that they understood or at least tried to understand the weight of their actions, and that they knew when to put their guns down.

My grandfather and many other men and women fought and many died in the “great wars” ww1 and ww2. They stood up to tyrany and stood for everybodies right to live in a diverse and equal society of agreed upon (voted for) values and laws and the right to live and express each others personal beliefs in respect of our fellow humankind and the world around us flora fauna etc. OK so were not perfect and have a long way to go, but not so far if you actually think about it if we work together. war today has become big business not the means to restoring balance and harmony. maybe today if the people who took our countries to war thought about the weight of their actions at a core level face to face with those they might wage war upon they would change their minds and realise that picking up guns should only be a last resort with a view to developing greater (more peacefull) means of conflict resolution. this subject is so diverse and heavily debated that it would take hours to discuss the topic of war in depth. My statement with this piece is basicly for people in power and people in general to think about the weight of their actions when “bringing out the big guns” so to speak.

    JP100 this is good, and it’s so spooky you posted this tonight…I found an old poem I wrote about my grand father tonight whilst sorting stuff, in it I wrote about him having to leave his family during the war….He was in the Boer war and the hardship his family faced while he was away…. so many forget….I didn’t get to know him till later in my life, when he told his stories I am glad that I was old enough to remember them,
    Well done lovely workmanship with art and lovely truthful words….great to have a passion….Cheers

    Exceptional photograph of one of my favorite icons. The detail and your unique vision are impressive. There is a wonderful integration of imagery with great detail and a surrealotherworldly perception, especially of your original drawing of the body with fascinating imagery in unexpected places. This is a great piece because it draws the viewer in to see multi-dimensions that are not evident at a quick glance. The more you look, the more is revealed that makes artistic expression have more depth and unusual appeal.

    This peice is extraordinary. The skill that’s shown in this is mindblowing and the vision behind it shows depth, passion and intelligence. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the previous wars our world has seen and the price that everyone, both home and away, paid for the freedoms and liberties we are allowed today. It scares me that we could possibly lose control of the current situation and see the same extent of loss and pain that we have in the past.
    Thank you for sharing this fantastic peice.

    it’d be a great Guns N Roses cover if they were still releasing music

    I would be happy to sell the work to them as an album cover i still have the original wrapped in storage in preparation for exhibition next year (2008). Unfortunately the original gunners had there day a long time ago, i have done covers for local bands but a cover for an international act the likes of the gunners would be amazing and a huge boost for my career. Maybe if velvet revolver are looking for some artwork for a future album cover etc then you could hook me up kleze.
