    Huh, that's pretty cool.

    Does anyone know if Canada has any current war artists? I've seen WWI/WWII stuff, but nothing recent...

    I think we'd need a more active military for it to be of much interest. Not that I wish they were out blazing guns or anything..

    Wasn't he featured in American Drawing magazine? I think I recognize that one.

    Oh, yes! This guy is a Canadian who spent some time drawing in Afghanistan. He's pretty good. I exchanged a few emails with him last summer.

    Huh. Some of the drawings the front page now aren't his best. Scroll to the bottom and click the archives for more...but it looks like they've let some of the image links die. Shoot. I hate that.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Now I'm annoyed. His name is Richard Johnson, but most of the posts I've seen about him so far just refer back to the National Post link I've put in the previous post, and that appears to have mostly dead images.

    That ain't right.

    So war drawing... is it done by soldiers who are drawing, or is it imbedded artists like some kind of bizarre journalist?
