This is incredible! I can see the messages in this, but I don't have the ability to illustrate work such as this myself, so I'm even more impressed by your skills and thoughts.

I love that you used different parts of the American flag with similar colors of bandannas to represent each party. The rope they're standing on is a powerful part of this, as it shows what a fine line they're walking, not only with each other, but with our country, and planet. The weapons show their true intentions and the bandannas hiding their faces show that they know what they're doing is wrong and are either fearful of the consequences of being exposed as the harbinger of their intentions, or they're just know that what they're doing is wrong and are shameful of it (those are MY two interpretations, anyway). The storm rising rapidly behind them makes it much more intense than if it weren't there and adds the element of urgency and the feeling of war coming.

NICE work!

Awesome political piece that really says alot without overpowering the eyes. I love the use of the red and blue bandanas (and I'm not sure if it's intentional but I also liked the red bandana, white sky then blue bandana..representing the red white and blue of course :P)

As I said, awesome imagery with the tight rope and arms tucked behind their backs with their fingers crossed. This is definitely a fav. :+fav:

Thanks everyone for chiming in on this piece. It is one of the largest ones I've ever done and it took a long time to get it right.
