Remembrance (street) by ThePpeGFX Remembrance (street) by ThePpeGFX
My small way of paying respect to the people who have given their lives to protect what they love.

Inspired by a friend's poem, 'Rest In Peace?' by Ben Reiss...

Requiescat in pace they say,
Requiescat in pace.
Easy to say when itís in bed that you lay
and youíve actually got skin on your face.

If youíre slumped by a gun
(Which is broken and stuck)
And glowing all white in the sun,
Then itís hard to see much peace in the muck,

When itís your skull that leers at the Hun.

Very cool, Veterans Day is tomorrow here in the states.

Any chance that you might sell these as part of a sticker pack? I bought a set of the dog stickers you released a while back, and would love to add these to my collection.

Cheers for the words, man.

However unfortunately, I'm not selling these or anything. It's less about the cost or skill involved and just the fact they simply take time to make.

I can't think of a better tribute.

PS: Interestingly there's an ad telling me to join the military on this page...

It must be dA picking up on keywords in this page and producing relevant ads...although my ad is about Cirque du Soleil.

Just added another photo at the end, too.

Amazing. (Your work, not the ads.)

Haha, although to be fair, I've heard the Cirque du Soleil are pretty sweet.

Cheers man.

It has a great effect with the poem and I can see how and why you got ininspired.
It's a nice thing to do for the fallen

Yeah, I had wanted something to mark Remembrance Sunday but the poem spurred me on with it's imagery.

Thank you, Poul.

Ah! That explains the flowers (we don't have Remembrance Sunday where I come from, but we do have a vague of what it is).

Any time, Pahnl ;)
