Libya's Muammar Gaddafi

Violence, death and Gaddafi. Here is a recent, self-initiated portrait illustration of Muammar Gaddafi. I had the urge to create this image last week and since then, Libya has been quietly rising to the top of the news . . . again. Rebel fighters are saying that they've obtained Libya's top-secret battle plan to retake Misrata. Has Gaddafi backed himself into a corner? His black, curly, iconic hair, has he grown enough over the years to weave his own noose? I couldn't help wonder what it might look like to create this concept. Here is the final result. Collage, mixed media.
