A scene from Fisheye Placebo.

Night Version

This image was inspired by a free Breadley Manning protest I participated in. We were a small group of about 20-30 peaceful protesters met by an overkill of riot police. We dissipated peacefully to avoid arrest but the image of facing against a roll of riot police remained in my mind.

For those not familiar with Bradley Manning, he was the one who leaked the Collateral Murder video to Wikileaks. The video details the slaughter of innocent Iraqi civilians and journalists by American soldiers. Amongst the injured were 2 children whose father was killed. When the journalists' families asked about how they were killed, they were lied to. For revealing the true casualties of war, Manning was put into solitary confinement and tortured without trial.

This is brilliant. Everyone one of your works are worth more than a 1000 words. I have no words for this

This image reminded me quite the protests that took place in Brazil last year.

I like how the peace sign he's throwing up also works as inverted commas for the jackets message, very cool.

i know this is from your comic and whatnot but every time i see those three words in anyone of your pieces i get chills.
they are just three little words yet they are so deep and added with your art its even better i cant even explain how i feel about them.
your work is amazingly breathtaking and meaningful i look forward to more of your art.
btw if i saw this as a poster in a store i would totally rip it off the wall and take it home :D
