This was a computer based illustration project that I made while I was attending college a few years ago. The goal of the assignment was to create a 2-color illustration. We could only use two colors of ink (the white paper color was considered a bonus). The whole point was to get us used to designing signs and advertisements that would not cost a lot of money in the printing process.
I decided to do a patriotic piece using just red and blue ink and I thought it would be nice to honor Vietnam veterans. My dad served in Vietnam and, when he returned home, he never received so much as a 'thank you' for serving his country. So this was my way of thanking my dad and all of those who served in Vietnam.
