Sarah Para Bellum

Move over, Rosie the Riveter. Here comes Sarah, and it’s not just rivets she’s packing. –All Right Magazine

No matter how you feel about Alaska's former governor, everyone has an opinion. Today, America is arguably in peril from forces potentially as destructive as Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. During WWII Rosie the Riveter kept 'em flying, and today when most of our "conservative" leaders are majoring in hand-wringing, the girls are stepping up. –Dale

T-shirt. You'll sell a million of 'em.

Instant American cultural classic - I had forgotten about the Rosie the Riveter that you draw upon but I have the "We Can Do It" version with Rosie flexing her biceps framed on the wall.

Congratulations, sir. Well done, indeed.

*That* is a beautiful piece of artwork. I'd buy a poster in a heartbeat.

rayra said...

Great illustration!

seconding the t-shirt comment.

I love it, and I would definitely buy a poster and T-shirt.

I noticed an error, though, and it's a big one.

The pattern of stars on Sarah's flag is identical to the Rosie the Riveter original by Norman Rockwell.


Which means it's a 48-star flag. Which would tend to exclude Alaska. (!)

Beautiful. I, too, NEED the T-shirt.

I love it. And I love the moose party mascot!!! Perhaps we should start a new real Republican party...the Palin Republican.

Great poster! Would love permission to use it in merchandizing!

Goon said...

This picture is awesome, any way I can use it too?

rickl said...

I just ordered a poster, as promised.

And thanks for fixing the flag!

When I first saw this image, I smiled. But, I was drawn to it more than just a glance would satisfy.

I drank it in, slowly at first, then I gulped. I was puzzled, almost confused.

Then it hit me, full force, and goose bumps appeared on my arms, tears ran down my cheek.

You hit a spot...in the Heart, the Soul, and the Brain, all at once and, with such intense force that, to be honest, leaves nothing else to be said.

Thank you.

Sarah Para Bellum, Prepare for War. Indeed. Fantastic art! Already a classic.

Sheryl said...

Thank you.
I admire your talent, your expression and ability to invoke thought and feeling with your brushstrokes.
Would you also share what Old Testament scripture you refered to on one of the buttons adorning Sarah's blue dress?
