Art and posts by Kristopher Battles, Marine Combat Artist
Tuesday, February 02, 2010
In honor of this 2nd day of February, which is customarily called Groundhog Day I felt I should post this drawing I did last year, which is a logo for the History Division's Marine Corps University Press. (HD used to have their offices in a trailer-- or rather a building composed of several trailer segments, under and around which dwelt many ground hogs--thus becoming the mascot in their logo.
By the way, what is his prognosis for this year's winter...? Did he see his shadow or not? (It's like that "Fall Forward Spring Back thing, I never can figure it out... oh I mean of course Spring Forward Fall Back....)
I am a landscape and portrait painter of the Classical Realist school, inspired by the masters of art history as I paint the world around me.
I am currently serving as a Combat Artist in the US Marine Corps.
