G.I. Joe: America's Movable Fighting Man

GI Joe, 24 x 12, oil on cradled board

I was asked to paint a GI Joe themed painting in the same style as my Vintage Games series. GI Joe first appeared in 1964 and was sold in a "lidded box with dynamic graphics that illustrated the specific branch of the military offered". Read about the history of the doll and the packaging on this website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G.I._Joe:_America's_Movable_Fighting_Man

This painting will be included in the Wild Bunch Art Show at Lovetts Gallery , 6528 E. 51st ST, Tulsa, OK 74145 in the Farm Shopping Center beginning  November 8, 2014 10am - 5pm.
