Nice piece. I read the other comments and agree about the sense of having a bunch of "easily offendeds" out there. As artists we don't always look for a deeper meaning, just a fun play on an iconic image of history. I'm diggin' it...

The rebellion in Star Wars were guerrilla fighters against an empire, they were not invaders planting their flag on other people's soil.

The Japanese were not oppressing US citizenry, unlike the Empire in Star Wars which oppressed the galaxy. This is image is pretty cruel to all fellow Star Wars fans in Japan, where close to 20,000 Japanese defenders were massacred during Iwo Jima, so many sacrificing their lives against the invading empire.

Their grandchildren grew up to love Star Wars too.

I think you're over-thinking this far too much. As evidenced by the fact you left a 3-paragraph comment on a drawing of four men and a Wookiee sticking a flag in the ground.

Yep, that was my intention upon drawing this commission... being cruel to Japanese Star Wars fans.

*sigh*

There seems to be an outbreak of Easily Offended these days. Like some kind of zombie grievance brigade, attacking everyone and everything that they think might be in any way intended to be derogatory.

If you don't like the image, don't look at it. But don't presume harmful motivations in me when you have no idea what I think or feel.

In fact, the invaders who planted that flag after the butchery put their own citizens in concentration camps just because they were Japanese.

This is not the message of the Star Wars story. And no, US soldiers are not rebels. They have not been rebels since the days when white males in the East coast of North America rose up against the British empire. In fact after we conquered Japan and even committed genocide on that land, we occupied Iwo Jima militarily until 1968. That's something the Empire would do, not the Rebellion.

Otis Frampton completely disgraced the flag of the Alliance here. Go study about how we committed genocide in that country and then come back and look at this image.

My Grandfather was one of those "oppressors" at Iwo Jima.  Someone killed his brother at Pearl Harbor before he went there though. . .   Get over it both sides deserve all the honor and respect in the world.  Both sides made mistakes and progress and we're allies now.  This drawing is awesome Otis.
