Here is an old idea I had from school. Originally, it was conceived for a class instructed by Rick Sealock. The project was meant to be an exercise in not-so-appropriate imagery. Something shocking or risky. It was among the first of many roughs which may or may not have even made it to the teacher's hands. To be honest, I can't remember what article this image was first based on.
To me however this image came to represent the mentality of soldiers who function as a unit or singular cause. I imagine there is a lot of individuality lost in being a soldier.The mask represents this loss. On the other hand, a great deal of strength comes from unity. Naturally, an unfortunate loss of accountability can be a side-effect.
