"This is my rifle. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my rifle and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen."
I love to wind down to a minimal piece after working on other peoples projects. It makes me learn new techniques as well as speeding up whilst using Adobe Illustrator. I decided to create one for Full Metal Jacket as I had a moment of inspiration and an idea which may just work out great. Since spreading this piece around the web I've had a lot of positive feedback !
Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket is one of my favorite films. I love watching war films but I think Full Metal Jacket is different to most. Also, I feel like it's aged so well, much like other films by Kubrick.
