Peace? by BuggelyToons Peace? by BuggelyToons
©Neal Coghlan 2005
This was a final piece I had created for one of my units in A level art. It's probably one of if not my favourite piece that I've worked on and is meant to represent a kind of abstract or different view of that of war and peace. I had written an essay on it as my evaluation of the piece and may submit that somewhere here too, perhaps in the journal. It was created in Illustrator and Photoshop and includes some scans of splattered paint that I used as brushes. Much of the inspiration for this piece came from works by Matthew Curry, the artist I used to focus on, and his work can be found at [link]. Check it out, it's quite different and almost fantasy-like in some ways.
Also note that this isn't the actual size for the image, it was originally created at 60x60cm, and has more of an impact when viewed at this size...

Great job, Buggley! I can't believe you did that with splattered bits of paint. It is amazing!
From yours truly,
BrentsBro :)

1. To yourself, say the name of the only



guy or girl you wanna be with 3



times!











*************************************************************











2. Think of something you wanna accomplish



within the next week and say it to your self

6



times!!











~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~































3. If you had 1 wish what would it be? say it to



yourself 9 times!!!








-----------------------------------------------------------------------















4. Think of something that you want to happen



between you and that 1special person and say



it to your self 12

times!!!












--------------------------------------------------------------------















5. Now, heres the hard part! Pick only 1 of these wishes and as



you scroll down focus and



concentrate on it and think on nothing



else but that wish.

Now make one last &final wish about that one wish

that you picked.







After reading this, you have 1 hour to send it out to 15 people,



and what



you wished for will come true within in one week!







u only get one chance!!!!! Now scroll down and think of your



crush!!!



























































Keep going

down



























Keep going







































Keep

going








































!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!











Did you think of your crush? I hope so, that was



your last chance. Now pay very close attention this important



message!



Sorry but once read, must be sent. Yes, this is one of those kinda



chain



letters that everyone hates. This one has been going since 1863

and



if you



break this chain, you will pay!!!!!! Remember that after hearing



these



stories.







First Example:



Take Barbra Wallace.. She was a pretty lucky girl,



up till she got this same chain letter. She had a crush on the same



kid



since kindergarden. when she got this mail she didn't pay any



attention to



it. She just thought, no big deal. And deleted it. The next day her



dad



got fired and her mom dies in a car crash. If she would have sent



the



letter none of that would have happened and her mom

would be alive.







Second Example:



Try Freddie D. Now Freddie D. was your average



nerd. Had glasses, was short and chubby, was in gifted. All the



signs of



your total dork. He also received this letter and sent it to 51



people in



the hour. Now, like Barbra, he had a crush on a girl since 3rd



grade. The



next day after sending the chain the girl confessed her love for



him ever



since 3rd grade. Freddie D. finally had the courage to ask her out,



and of



course, she had been waiting to yes to that for years. They grew

up



and



married each other to live happily forever.







Third Example:



Now if you couldn't relate to the others, this'll



get ya hooked. Listen to this. A kid named Jordan Johnson was just



getting on AOL to check his mail. He was a quiet kid, not that



popular but



not a geek either. he was just normal. He saw he had mail from his



friend. It was this exact letter. Now Jordan Johnsen was a smart



kid and



he knew what could happen if he didnt pass it on. He simply pulled



a few



friends from his buddy list and sent it along. The next day,

about



that



same time, he got a phone call. It said he had won the lottery!



then his



dad came home and bought him a new bike! His mom bought him



Nintendo64 and



play station! His grandmother sent him a new computer, and his best



friend



gave him tickets to the concert he wanted to go to, Kid Rock and



Limp



Bizkit! Then he inherited a brand-new tv from his aunt! He was



goin' wild!



the next day his secret crush asked him out, and they have been



going out



ever since.







Now, you heard the stories. I know

which person i'd rather



be, but thats up to you. I wouldn't wanna end up like Barbra but



thats



only me. We all want what we cant have but now's ur chance to go



out with



that special somebody ur waiting for. Take it or leave it. If you



send



this to-



1 person- you will lose all luck in ur love



life.....forever!!!!!



10 people- your crush will say they like you as a



friend......ONLY!!!!!



15 people- your crush will say they like you



20 people- your crush will ask you out!



25 people- your crush will kiss you!!



30 people - Your crush

will have sex with you



35 people or more- All of the above!!



Don't blow it, it's ur chance to shine! Have



everything u wanted, and more! Now, complaining cus u dont have any



friends. Well theres an answer 4 everything. It's simple, just go



in a



chat room, pick some names and send away! but here's the



catch.....you only



have one hour to send it after being read. Please pass this to



everyone you.. know
and u cant send it baq to me
u don't have to do it!

In so much war, you can always find peace, just like in bad situation, you can always find a bit of good in it. :) A lovely, inspirational piece of art.

this is really amazing. itforces you to think about what war and peace really means, and the hypocrisy of the world in general. the cartoon clouds and really simple missle/bomb designs really pulls the attention to the mess that the war has made. the skulls was an excellent touch, and then the peace sign radiating on top of this really sets out the message. i really love this.
