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.
