Ready to Hang

The reason I chose the title for this piece is because that is Erwin Rommel, nicknamed the Desert Fox. He was one of the smartest military strategists to ever walk the earth and an outspoken opponent of Adolf Hitler.

I created this piece because of the deep affection that I have for history. It should never be forgotten.
My inspiration in creating this piece was reading a biography about Erwin Rommel and his many campaigns.

I make custom framing and stretch my own canvas, so from minute one until its on your wall, you know it has been treated with love.

I have never taken art seriously in the regards that I think things need to be perfect. I love imperfection. I would color in the lines, unless i found the lines to be too constricting. There is no rules to art. If you can make it in 5 minuets and you love it... fantastic. If it takes 50 years...fantastic. I say create what you want to create, if others like it, that is a plus, if not...fuck em. I began traveling at a young age with my family, until I got a wild hair up my ass, got the itch and I ventured out on my own. I have since lived in Tanzania, South Africa, France, Romania, Belgium, Argentina and Ghana and explored and experienced a nice chunk of the world and the wonderful cultures and people that go along with it. Most of my work abroad has been for nonprofits, some for international media, and some too crazy to discuss on the Internet. Currently I am in law school focusing a lot on international law. My passion for culture, people, history, and the developing world is reflected in many of my pieces.
