Kristy and family are serving our country over in Germany at the moment. Technically her husband is the one that is serving, but I know the rest of the family is making sacrifices as well.
She wanted an illustration of the whole family as a gift for her husband, and requested a patriotic theme. I suggested that maybe I could try to depict her family at the flag raising on Iwo Jima. But I think she preferred that I tone it down a bit and asked me to draw a draped American flag over the front of the illustration.
Again, I am here to please and this is what I came up with. Cute kids - don't you think?
The F-16 flying over head was something she thought her husband would really like. Below is a photo from Christmas Day. It looks like the baby is thrilled by my talent.
I'm proud to have one of my drawings sitting in Germany. Including Gail's caricature that I mailed to England, (Nov. 24 post) this drawing has traveling further than any of my caricatures so far. I am doing one for a family in Australia soon. Maybe, if I end up doing one for a family of penguins in the Antarctic, that would travel further yet.
Check out Kristy's blog and express your thanks to her and the whole family for helping to secure our freedom.
Thank you Kristy and family for serving our country and for using me for your cartoon needs.
