lovenotwar by roxby lovenotwar by roxby
you hear it a lot lately with all the stuf going on iraq. make love not war. so many slogans.
i wanted to post this image because im proud of it. i put a fair bit of time into it actually. the development and all. im very happy with the simplicity i managed to keep compared to some work thesedays.
so much violence, sometimes over rules love. im having a very hard time trying to decide whether or not to put it in the "Current Events->Iraq War 2003" section because i dont know if its right. to put my drawing in there i mean. well help me. support me.

peace
to everyone

i always skip this one.
because i dont know. the body seems to idealistic to me.
oh well. its beautifully drawn, like taking the most important lines from a photograph, just taking the information.
and what you wrote regarding its relevance, even just in the name of the piece, it makes me hate it less (i suppose i dont hate it, i just get annoyed -mayhaps jealous?- of constant imagery from any source, of that body type).
anyway, top job chap.

it is a trace off a photograph. original given to me by my first girlfriend, just before she left the city, she gave me a paper wrapped collection of female pictures that i could use in my art someday. and i guess i did

Beautiful. Great lines, great flow. I just wish the background was actually white. But I'm always a sucker for red, white and black. No matter, this is still gorgeous.

this is really neat.
i think it belongs in the current events section.
the arrow kindof reminds me
of the arrows used in maps
to show where the troops are going.
i dont know if you wanted it that way.
but i like it that way..
very good job.

HAHAHA! I love the "target objective" in this war! It's a great peace with lots of symbolism that was handled really well. It's witty, cleaver and gets a point across: what every good piece of political art should do.

Hehehe... it was certainly attention-catching from the thumbnails on the main page ;b

Seriously though, I do support you. I tried to express my feelings over all this in art, it didn't turn out so well... this has a strange feel to it, I like it'su. I like the red and the black'su. And as always I love simplicity...
