Exclamation Waking a Giant - 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack

"Waking a Giant"

On 7 December 1941, 75 years ago today, the skies over Oahu, Hawaii, filled with the noise of Japanese radial engines. Before too long Pearl Harbor and surrounding facilities were burning and the American fleet had suffered a major blow. But the carriers had cheated death and would come back to take their revenge on the Imperial Japanese Navy, while in America the war machine went in overdrive. Admiral Yamamoto, the designer of the Pearl Harbor attack, most likely saw this coming.

Earlier this year I was commissioned to design the cover for a bookazine written by Jack Harrison for Mortons Media, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. It was only logical to me that I try and combine the two most iconic war machines of this battle: the USS Arizona and the Mitsubishi Zero.
