Well, as to the previously written post, I'm sure that Nat Geo, like any other published work, has to give proper credit to anything it prints If an artist is "unknown" and then finds his/her artwork in a nationally published magazine,they had better have put forth a lot better effort than you obviously did to find the artist. I mean, really, how hard could it be to look up who was in the Steel Dragons and enquire who the artist was. And since I can go on this site and still order this print, how can you say that you have deleted it? If I come to this site and try to order it, I better find that it is no longer available. This seems to be a good, worthwhile project so I hope you clean up your act and try harder to find the artists. I am sure a lot of them are hard to find but this one is signed! And says it was the Steel Dragons!

This is stolen artwork. The artists' signatures are clearly visible in the lower right corner. The top signature is that of my husband, Spc Michael Riley, currently stationed at Ft. Hood, TX with the 2-82 FA Steel Dragons. He designed and painted that mural while he was in Kuwait, toward the end of Iraq Operation New Dawn. PFC Russell is the battle buddy who assisted him in painting the mural. The artists are certainly not 'Unknown', and you will be receiving an order to cease and desist the illegal sale of this SIGNED ORIGINAL ARTWORK.

The artwork is not "stolen" as I captured the photo myself during the 2011 summer expedition to Iraq and Kuwait. As we took thousands of photos of hundreds of t-walls in both countries, locating the artists responsible was near impossible, though we have and continue to try. That's why we have a website, Facebook page and Twitter with over 13,000 fans. The Graffiti of War Project was formed in 2010 to showcase the works of art in conflict zones to raise global awareness of PTSD and TBI and the proceeds from art sales and the eventual book goes to our partner non-profits, GiveAnHour and others. All this is listed and discussed on our website that is listed on our FAA profile. We have yet to sell a print of this and we will delete it from here and will not be including it to our book in partnership with National Geographic as we have thousands of other pieces. If you have further concerns, please direct them to info@graffitiofwar.com.
