Felipe Galindo, a Mexican-born, New York-based cartoonist and animator, created this cartoon in tribute to U.S. soldiers’ service in the war in Iraq. Galindo thoughtfully juxtaposes two images within the form of an hourglass. In the upper part, a U.S. soldier in Iraq stands on alert. In the lower part, the helmet-topped rifles of six deceased soldiers commemorate the ultimate sacrifice each made and underscore the gravity of their living comrade’s commitment. Like many cartoonists today, Galindo first produces a drawing in ink and then adds color digitally to complete the final version. Both versions are displayed.
