30 Avengers in 30 Days Sketch Challenge

Yesterday marked the sixtieth day of the Daily Sketch Challenge. The latter half, #30AVGR30DAYS Challenge, was especially challenging since July was chock-full of family events, traveling and increased work commitments. The online store was launched where these sketches and other original arts by me can be purchased. I appreciate everyone that have followed this thread and appreciate your support in spreading the word. For the next 30 days, join me in #30ROGS30DAYS to explore various rogues gallery of our favorite superheroes, both DC and Marvel.

Memorial Day 2015

Thank you, all the men and women that have laid down their lives. Truly there is no greater love one can extend to another (John 15:30). As we remember the ultimate sacrifices made by all of these brave men and women, my heart is personally drawn to the Korean War veterans.
The freedom that I and millions of others enjoy in my birthplace of South Korea came at the price of their sacrifice.
According to History.com: “The Korean War was relatively short but exceptionally bloody. Nearly 5 million people died. More than half of these–about 10 percent of Korea’s prewar population–were civilians. (This rate of civilian casualties was higher than World War II’s and Vietnam’s.) Almost 40,000 Americans died in action in Korea, and more than 100,000 were wounded.”
Here’s a quick sketch of the Korean War Memorial, whose haunting engraved words inspire me: “Our nation honors her sons and daughters who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met [1950 • Korea • 1953]”
