  I rather admire your illustrations of WWI-era soldiers. My grandfather and most of his brothers fought in that war. My grandfather in the German Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte), one brother in the Navy (Kaiserliche Marine), and the others in various Army units. (One, Great-uncle Solomon was an officer in a Stormtrooper unit (Stoßtruppen) towards the end of the war. He lost his right arm below the elbow in a raid on an American trench, not expecting the troops to be armed with pump-action shotguns.) I think you've captured the war eloquently in their faces. One thing you don't hear about very often is how young most of them were. (My grandfather was only 18 when the war ended, and his brother Solomon, 23. [Solomon survived WWI, but not the Nazis.])

I would be happy to make similar illustrations for other books.
If you interested in, please write me.

Are you, per chance, illustrator for books akin to the ones of Osprey collection ?
