Interesting. Care to elaborate? What size is it? How did you come to make it?

It is about 12.5" by 5". I found the wood in my basement (we have a huge pile of scraps left from construction) I liked its shape. It is actually wider at the top (not just perspective). I found the images and story of 'Inky' the homeless man from a Life magazine from the 1940's. The Mayor of NYC was 'collecting' homeless to join our military in WWII. The article was very moving and so were the images. Inky needed to be seen again. So here he is. Inky from the Bowery in NYC.

Interesting story. I like using found objects on instinct. Your perspective on the military is unique since you grew up with it. Have you thought about doing more with this theme?
