Nice. It will certainly resonate with some U.S. Americans.

Nice work. How long did that picture take you? I like the chain maile, that came out well. Ever been interested in doing that sort of art work for a book?

Hehe, thought it was a fun parafraise on the marine theme, totally unhistorical though.

It took about 1 hour to do. It is done with feltmarkers from touch, many designers and graffiti artists use them for schetches.

That would be fun. I have worked professionally with art work a few years back.

Funny how it could almost be interpreted as the man on the right being chased by the others up this rocky top, wrestling to keep his flag Happy

If yes from here, then perhaps we can PM back and forth.
Those "art books" are awsome, but there is only pictures...
I love to write books, but I dislike writing description of how things look; rather I like describing the emotional description of people and things.
I am capable of self publishing.
A partnership of writer and artist having a book with as much story as there is illustrative depictions would be a neat combination.

Your drawing style is very appealing. Would you be interested in giving it a test run? The story does involve knights and the like.

Thought the same thing.
