United States Armed Forces: Marines By Michael Korfhage, Joel Anderson, 2014
- United States Armed Forces: Marines
As we pay tribute through our art to the national parks, American cities, national monuments, and points of interest, we also must tip our artistic hats to our country’s armed forces, our protectors, and guardians of the nation. Our illustrators at Anderson Design Group created a mini-series of turn-of-the- century poster art to honor the armed forces: a hand-illustrated salute via the medium of vintage poster art. This particular piece depicts the statue of John A. Lejeune, a well-known Marine Lieutenant General. The statue stands tall and proud at Camp Lejeune, a Marine Corps base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. To learn more about the base and the statue that keeps watch over it, check out the Commemorative Landscapes of North Carolina.
