Remember Love & Peace.

The work shown here was created for the Love and Peace issue in memory of Nagasaki and Hiroshima of a Japanese magazine called Koukoku Hihyou.

The first image shows the evolution like it could be.
Starting with the ape, passing through the level of armed human being,
where the weapon becomes a object becomes less for surviving and more for killing. It ends by deformed child mutated by nuclear radiation who would not be able to survive on his own or keep the evolution going.

The second image shows a little boy, which was also the name of the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima. I tried to illustrate this image in a really aggressive style to reflect the power of the destruction. The sentence "then it started snowing" talks about the white ash that followed. Most of the children who had never seen snow before started to play with that ash.

The third image is showing the beauty of the atomic mushroom. The fine line drawing is also connected to the traditional way Japanese artists used to draw. The word "remember" is the link to the theme of the issue. Remember the meaning of love and peace! Remember what happened on the August 6-9, 1945 in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
