What is this? A Fairey knockoff with anime eyes? Not that fairey didn't probably copy his image from someone else as well.

fromt the ObeyGiant web site:
GRENADE GIRL

I was checking out picturesonwalls.com (which you should too if you are not familiar) and I came across this image by a Japanese artist named Aiko. I’m not sure how long the image has been around, but for the record, I was not aware of it when I made my War by Numbers print. Since the two images came out close to the same time I’m pretty sure it is a coincidence. I really like Aiko’s image and I think it is amazing how both images subvert their respective culture’s versions of cute cliche. The back story with my image is this: I was asked to participate in a children’s charity art show where each artist would be given a PAINT BY NUMBER image to work back into. The image I got was of a little girl with a flower.
