AMERI-KAA!!


I'm really sorry I missed the show..
But, I Hope everyone had an awesome fourth of July, complete with fireworks, campfires, beer, and smore's...

So, Here's the Captain America image I submitted recently to The AUTUMN SOCIETY of PHILADELPHIA. It was for there GOLDEN AGE Show, and I figured it was appropriate for the most recent holiday...

P.S.
Before I get bombarded by comments I need to clear one thing up.... I know the Nazi emblem (swasticka) is backwards in this image, I didn't have time to correct it after I'd printed, and prepped to send out in the mail.... I don't normally draw them, there's a good change I flopped my reference image while painting in photoshop and never corrected it..... or you can just imagine that OL' CAPPY is hitting RED SKULL SO HARD that the symbol just flip-flopped.

Either way I'll see about catching the show before it comes down...
Hope you dig.

I really dug this image, and at the show more than a few people commented that it was their favorite in the show, so consider it a great success!

feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but he swastika facing the opposite is a hinduo (maybe Buddhist also) symbol for "life." I remember an Indian friend had some piece of art on his basement wall with a swastika and he told me something to that effect. either way the backwards version is actually a positive.

regardless, this was one of my favorite pieces int he show.
