Another Pen and ink drawing done for my attempt to gain back lost illustration skillz.
This drawing depicts an American Soldier doing recon work in war torn Iraq of 2004. The photo reference that I used for this drawing was taken from Kevinsites.net. Crumble.jpg was the image name.
Kevin Sites is a journalist for NBC news who keeps an online blog of his journey while covering the Iraq war and occupation. Kevin gained international attention in late 2004 when he captured an American Soldier on tape killing an unarmed insurgent. I had been reading Kevins weblog for about 9 months already when the story broke on th news and soon millions of people knew about Kevin's web site. Hopefully his stories can influence more people into realising what really goes on in wartime operations. It's not just "Cops and robbers" out there, it's life and death.
I highly recommend anyone reading this description of head over to Kevinssites.net and check it out (if it's still up and running). The website is a testament as to the power of the internet and communication in general.
