Drawing by Mark Vallen

"Not Our Children - Not Their Children"
Mark Vallen 2003
Pencil on paper, 20 x 22 inches

Artist's statement:

"I created this drawing just as the 'Shock and Awe' U.S. bombing and invasion of Iraq started in 2003, and it was circulated on the street as a flyer. My artwork was eventually published in the book, Peace Signs - The Anti-War Movement Illustrated, a collection of international artworks in opposition to the war on Iraq"

Vallen's drawing was exhibited at San Francisco's Meridian Gallery in 2008 as part of that gallery's War & Empire exhibit. The group show featured over 40 artists, including Fernando Botero, Guy Colwell, Gee Vaucher, and Patrick Oliphant. The original drawing can be purchased here.
