The artwork for my double page spread is quite plain and simple. In this piece I have shown the outline of an american soldier holding a gun with women and children. My aim for this artwork was to present innocent civilians cowering. Inside all of the white space I am going to insert pull/key quotes.
The images I used to create this piece on Adobe Photoshop were:
A Palestinian woman runs with her children following what police said was an Israeli air strike on a house in Gaza city July 9, 2014. At least 23 people were killed across Gaza, Palestinian officials said on Wednesday, by a bombardment Israel said may be just the start of a lengthy offensive against Islamist militants whose rockets struck deeper than ever before into Israel.

VIETNAM WAR: GUARD. An American machine gunner stands guard over women and children, while his comrades search a building near Saigon, 1969.
I also merged the American and the Vietnam flags together into one image using Adobe Photoshop.
