What inspired you to create this artwork?

I am pursuing a career in the Marine Corps, so the artwork and history of the marines and the military interest me.

What is this artwork of?

An iconic photograph taken by Joe Rosenthal on February 23, 1945. The photo is of six Marines raising the U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in WW2.

What materials did you use?

A fine point Sharpie Ink Pen and tiny dots. The style is called stippling.

How long did it take you?

A month

If you could choose a name for your piece, what would it be?

“We Prevail.” I chose this name because the picture shows how during a tough fight, U.S. soldiers are brave enough to climb to the top of this mountain to secure their position and continue the battle even though they were outnumbered. A few days later they secured the Island and the flag became a symbol of victory.

Is any of your artwork in any art shows?

This piece was submitted to the U.S. Representatives Art Competition in Washington D.C.
