The Patriot

Every boy seems to dream of being a soldier.  This is an early drawing of mine from way WAY back.  I am posting this in honor of all those boys who have sacrificed their lives for our Freedom.

What a wonderful story-in-a-picture, sissie. From the stance with the flag, to the too-big BDU's, to the tennis shoes peeking out from underneath.

Happy Memorial Day! And this is a lovely sketch - it's weird going back through your older work, isn't it? I often get embarrassed by my older artwork for some reason.

A very nice piece of artwork Sissy...you say it all in a few lines. It is interesting the fascination that little boys have with war...and a damnable shame that they ever have to find out the reality.
On a lighter note have a Happy June...do you think perhaps spring has finally arrived??? Love you.
