in case anyone's interested, Diabloskinz (UK) sells electronics skins with this design and some of my other ones too! go check it out -> [link]
i finally got this scanned! a lot of you asked for larger, better-quality prints, so here you go : ) i will also be selling different sized prints at AWA this year as well.
it's been a year since i've uploaded this piece; it's somewhat disheartening to see it floating around on the internet and being used without my permission. I know it's kind of expected but please let me know if you see it without my name/link attached. Thanks!
I did this piece last year as a school assignment to "personify two opposite concepts" (e.g. night and day, love and hate, etc)
While its arguable for people to fight for the sake of peace, I think that war itself can never bring true peace. War, in the form of a mutilated young man merged with weapons of mass destruction and spewing toxic waste as it passes, justifies itself as the protector of Peace (giving flower to her), but in actuality wherever he steps, Peace is inevitably destroyed.
...and yes, I got the "heartless" (heart falling out) idea from Russia orz
I think if I try to explain this image further it'll just ruin the concept X'D so see it however you want to.
Šjin, do not use/redistribute without my permission please
