Defending Coney Island

Post 9/11, America was on high alert for terrorist attacks.  This collection of illustrations was created in 2005.  More than 10 years later and the concept behind this continues to be relevant, worldwide.

Meanwhile, as we protect our borders and landmarks, deployment of US troops to inflict violence abroad in the name of the freedom we wish to defend at home is a paradox as alive today as it was in 2005.
