Gun Proud

This guy has a phallic gun and very insubstantial hands with which to fire it. He represents (to me.. not to give away too much) illegitimate pride, which comes with seeking status and recognition, which I read somewhere only recently. It is a mixed media event, pastels and charcoal background as well as pencils with oil paints and foreground cut out (I think that always looks so nice scanned, some may disagree).
