Blast from the Past #240: "Proliferation"

This is another piece of art from the flipchart I illustrated for the Nuclear Freeze group I worked with in the early 1980's. The glare on this art at the top and bottom comes from the fact that some of the lettering was done on an acetate overlay, and that reflected the lights I was using to take the photo of this art.



The text on this piece is a little dated, as I'm pretty sure several of these countries now have nukes.

I always liked this one -- especially the pose of the sower of the nuclear seeds. -- PL

Is there any news on the upcoming TMNT movie, I've heard that John Fusco had visited Mirage Studios, is there anything from that meeting you can share?

This poster's great!

I'm not entirely sure it was intended, but there's a Ralph Bakshi vibe that I'm loving in the image... Bakshi circa "Wizards"...
