My Vision of Peace
What do I think about when the word 'peace' comes to mind? I thought about war, past and current tumultuous events in the world, and the tools used to cause that havoc, pain and destruction. I created a synergy using images of these weapons of war and the familiar symbol associated with peace (a dove and olive branch). The transition from the vicious and harsh representations of the missiles to the soft and organic dove form, is a symbol of what we all hope to occur one day; that war will soon turn into peace. The aspect of suffering will soon be a distant reminder of the sacrifices a soon to be,and hopefully, peaceful society had to endure in order to have a victorious outcome.


Medium
I started off traditionally using black ink for the drawings and then inserted the work into Photoshop to add that digital painting aspect to the piece.

This is beautiful. I like the way the bomb shapes transition into the dove shape. Kind of Escher like in that respect.
