This is my tribute to Muntazer al-Zaidi. The legendary journalist who threw his shoe at George W Bush during his farewell visit to Iraq.

Clearly it is based on Banksy’s “Flower Chucker” stencil which is based on a photo from the 1968 riots in Paris.

I’ve tried to keep it faithful to both Banksy and Muntazer by illustrating his head as close as possible to the original press conference image, in the style of “Flower Thrower”.

I also illustrated the shoe to fit his hand just nicely and added a bit of definition to the fingers. Love to know what you think.

Good riddance George Dubbaya.

Muntazer al-Zaid may be the thrower, but you certainly are the tosser.

    this is a great idea well executed, and can by no means, unlike a lot of other images, be seen to ripping banksy…

    great work

  • Thanks SPARCS. Glad you like it.

    Great T!

    I’m thinking this could be a new national sport.

    Team sponsorships, uniforms, billion dollar stadiums…

  • That’s a great idea!

    You know, in Australia we throw thongs (flip-flops) in an annual competition.

    One thing’s for sure. Muntazer certainly started a movement. The Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao copped one from a student while speaking at Cambridge in the UK last week.

    I love it mate, I’m a big Banksy fan too and I think you’ve captured his style whilst adding your own, unique twist. (I’ve seen your other work too – you’ve got talent!)

  • Yeah, respect to Banksy and Muntazer for telling it like it is.

    Thanks for the nice comments wazandy.

    By the way I love your Swaine Witch short story. You sick muther. lol

    that’s cool. Banksy uses well known images and puts a unique twist on them to create something new, so its almost appropriate to do it back to his work!

  • Yeah of all his pieces, this is the one to do it too I reckon.

    Cheers craigfc.
