Work in Progress

Here's images of a sculpture I'm currently focused on. It stands about 23 inches high and shows a Marine rifleman with his helmet off. The piece will hopefully be more than that once completed with the addition of a rifle, an AT4 strung across his back and a shot up concrete pillar. This piece is loosely based on a series of photos I took of a LCpl Turchich leaning against a pillar catching his breath between assualts in Husaybah, Iraq during Operation Steel Curtain.
If you live in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach/Williamsburg region of Virginia please check out a show at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center featuring combat art (including myself and Sergeant Kris Battles) from the Civil War to the present called In the Line of Duty.

Great work, Mike!

Got my MCHF 2010 Calendar and was delighted to see one of Battles' pieces, but was really disappointed in not seeing anything from you. Whoever put this together is a nimrod.
