I looked through a bunch of my old artwork, hoping to find something specifically "New Years"-related, but I only found a few, and I'm pretty sure I've already posted them. So I decided to use this one -- it is a drawing I did in the early 1980's, I believe, when I was involved with a local "Nuclear Freeze" group.
I've always liked the idea here, that of a robot doing the classic "hammering swords into plowshares" thing (based on the Biblical text from the book of Isaiah):
"They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore."
I am not certain if this art was ever used for anything. But I did feel that it is appropriate as we enter a new year with hopes for peace… because that's an essential element for the true path to a "Happy New Year".
Have a great (and peaceful) one, everybody! -- PL
