War in our eyes, Peace in our soul

A word from the artist

1.Pencil, sharpie pen, fine black pen(used for dots), paper based tool for shading

2.Who; soldier/family

What; represents what the soldiers have gone through while having strong quotes from soldiers who’ve gave our world peace. As well as soldiers who had seen a death happen which leaves them traumatized. My drawing also shows what the family loses at war.

Why; assassination of Franz Ferdinand

Where; centered in Europe

When; 1914-1918

3. My message is that respect should be earned for the soldiers at war because they’ve sacrificed their lives so that families back at home will now live in peace. In war, truth is the first casualty. ..
