A Nation of Evil Men 2

Recently at Tattooed Mom's, a bar on South Street in Philadelphia, the Phantom Hand crew had another show after the gallery's closing in August this year. The goal of the show was to depict figures in history who the Artist feels are...well, evil. I had a tough time coming up with anyone this year...initially I was going to depict Kim Jong Un, mostly as I think he was fun to draw...

But I had a hard time making an actual illustration featuring the guy. A lot of other ideas floated through my head, then for some reason while on the internet I remembered a t-shirt I saw on a news article being worn by a plainclothes police officer, that said "We Wake Up Early...To Beat The Crowds"...that brought to mind a lot of over the top imagery that I decided to put on the page...

This has a bit of a Marshall Law by Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill thing going.

I colored 'em all in and made a little montage here....probably should have depicted a scene  with pepper spray in there...maybe later.

All Colored in!

The show was a fun time with lots of interesting pieces. I was thinking of adding some temporary tattoos of these guys at some point.
