Chicago by omegear

Here is a little work that I have achieved recently.
I wanted to make something about gangs from Chicago in the 11x15 CM format (x4 GFX) (below). I putted the photo of the print because the nonprinted image looks maybe a bit empty to the left / right upper side !

I drawed the character of the middle to make him symbolizes gangs from chicago, a bad boy, with the gaze blank (ravaged by drugs) I made this character being as much as possible non-ethics because there is a lot of differents gangs and i wanted him embodies all kinds of gangs. "Gang bang" tatoo comes from MS13, Blackshirt comes from AOB, etc.. His wings are syringes which represent drugs.

To the right I simply made a chinatown style, with the letters of an Asian gang called "white dragon." They have these three letters tattooed on the body. On the left, I nominate MS13, a Latino gang rather dangerous living in the housing project in Chicago (and in many other states besides).
