Pen and Ink

"Cam in front of the American Flag" ink on paper, 2007

I like this drawing because it is ironic - to me that is. Our flag has complicated significance to me, representing all the incredible things that are the United States of America, as well as the horrors we have committed and endured. The drawing say this to me, while I imagine that to anyone else it is simply a sketch. I guess the simplest things can have extended meanings in the right circumstances.

Thanks! Yes, I drew it. I like doing these loose squiggly drawings, its neat how abstracted something can become and still look like what it is based on.
