Combat Art and Artists

Commander Salamander indulges in his taste for military art. Heh. Whattaya expect from a member of a service whose antecedents include the homily "Rum, buggery, and the lash"?

Now - ya want some *real* combat art, try this:

Last February you guys were nice enough to post a piece about my little run in with protesters at the opening of my combat art show at the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland, Maine. I thought I’d let you and your readership know that I’m back in Iraq producing art and taking pictures. You can check out my current trip at [Fire and Ice] and see my work and read commentaries about my field experience. Thanks, Mike

Happy to oblige, Mike. All y'all add Fire and Ice to your blogrolls and RSS feeders.

And check out this post and this post for a little sample of what kind of work the Chief can do.

If this sample isn't enough.
