Here is an illustration I just did for class based on an article that was recently posted in the International Herald Tribune. The article is about American astronauts in Russia and can be found here. The major theme I tried to depict in this illustration was the fact that even though the U.S. and Russian astronauts are presently standing shoulder to shoulder, they still don't see eye to eye. One party is uneasy about their new alliance and the other is still skeptical of the other. So I though it would be kind of fun to give the whole piece cold war. overtones. There are corrections that need to be made. eg. the U.S flag, but for now here it is.
