Back on June 4, 1940 Winston Churchill gave this amazing speech in the house of commons. Recently brought to life in the new Churchill movie and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. It is said that immediately after giving the speech, Churchill muttered to a colleague, "And we’ll fight them with the butt ends of broken beer bottles because that's bloody well all we've got!" :-)

I was hired to design England and WW2 themed iPhone covers by a third party. This was their final pick in the sketches I had provided, yet they never actually purchased the last product. So here we are. I was personally more fond of my other sketches, perhaps I will complete some of them at some point too~~! (2012)

The Churchill tank was Great Britain's entry level heavy tank at the beginning of WW2. it was designed before the war and draws heavily on what was learned about tank warfare during WW1. Think Armour, flat sides and high tracks that could cross trenches was the doctrine at the time and so such the Churchill suffered from having no angled faces capable of deflecting enemy fire. Even so it was a good vehicle and performed admirably for its crews.
