Mark Vallen: Weblog for Art Theory and Anti-War Art

(Courtesy of Impetus Green Room)



At the start of the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, I created a drawing titled, Not Our Children - Not Their Children. Sadly, after two years of Iraq being militarily occupied; with 1,907 American soldiers killed as of this writing and tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians slain… my artwork is more relevant than ever. My drawing is included in the book, Peace Signs: The Anti-War Movement Illustrated. I encourage everyone to place on their website, the low resolution image accompanying this text (just give me credit and provide a link to http://www.art-for-a-change.com ). I also invite everyone to download a high resolution PDF file of my artwork that can be used to print out 8 1/2 x 11 inch flyers. Place the flyers in your car window, on the walls of your workplace, school or home - be creative.

I love the art work, I would love to use it for an upcoming piece I am doing, it's perfect. See my blog on children's rights, http://children.foreignpolicyblogs.com/

I look forward to your comments.

Thanks,
Cassandra
