I’ve been head of the Don Stewart fan club for over 4 years now. He even drew the logo for Kiss My Gumbo and gave me a copy of his alligator artwork when he came on air with me. His newest Marine tribute picture below just blew me away and I want everyone who was or knows a Marine to see it and heck – order one! From a distance, Don’s ballpoint pen art looks like a normal drawing, but you have to look up close and then -well…look for yourself – WOW!!! Click on it to enlarge. My good friend Mary Ripley, even found a reference to her late father, Marine Colonel John Ripley in there! These make great Christmas presents!!
This season DS Art is proud to introduce a remarkable new drawing, created to honor the history and tradition of the United States Marine Corps.
Uncommon Valor is a visual history of the Marines, arranged in the shape of the historic flag raising at Iwo Jima in World War II. Over 370 separate images have been placed in order of events from the founding of the Corps at Tun Tavern in 1775, to the current conflict in Afghanistan. Uniforms, weapons, ground and amphibious transport, badges, medals and Marine memorabilia combine to tell the story of a profound and consistent doctrine of patriotism, dedication, discipline, innovation, and sense of purpose unique to the United States Marines.
Half of the proceeds from sales of Uncommon Valor will be donated to the Marine Corps’ Wounded Warrior Regiment.
The drawing will be completed in time for the Marines’ 235th birthday on Wednesday, November 10. On that day the work will be publicly unveiled at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, Virginia. As part of the annual celebration, prints will be offered at special introductory prices.
