Prisoner of War – Memorial Day Tribute

POW

Media: graphite pencils and multi-purpose paper.

Survivor — Out of the Darkness

Inspired by a man. A soldier.

A rescue pilot during the Vietnam War.

And a prisoner of war for seven long years.

Out of the darkness rise the voices.

Through the shadows appear the images.

Memories… too many memories.

All unforgotten.

Unnamed Soldier – Memorial Day Tribute

Memorial Day tribute. A sketch of mine, based on the famous photograph by Horst Faas. The original photograph was of an unnamed solder, member of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Battalion, at Phuc Vinh airstrip in South Vietnam–dated June 18, 1965. My medium is graphite drawing pencils, on multi-purpose art paper. My next mission will be to invest in a phone with a better camera.
