Phil Hale illustrations

on Facebook

Phil Hale, a London based illustrator, knows what to do. His illustrations are incredibly rich with disjointed movement, explosive energy, and raw masculinity that which all combines into an overwhelming visit to drama itself.
Hale‘s caught-in-the-moment subjects in contexts that can be described as a bit dark reminded me of the time I fell in love with J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye. In my fantasy world, Hale and Salinger would be exchanging ideas for a collaborative project to illustrate Catcher over a casual dinner (Salinger making sure the plot in the book is followed), where I would join them for the meal as a mutual acquaintance they don’t mind having around, share a few laughs with the fellows, and silently admire them both while watching them talk.

"Why armored vehicles in a Midwestern inner suburb? Why would cops wear camouflage gear against a terrain patterned by convenience stores and beauty parlors? Why are the authorities in Ferguson, Mo. so given to quasi-martial crowd control methods (such as bans on walking on the street) and, per the reporting of Riverfront Times, the firing of tear gas at people in their own yards? (“‘This is my property!’ he shouted, prompting police to fire a tear gas canister directly at his face.”) Why would someone identifying himself as an 82nd Airborne Army veteran, observing the Ferguson police scene, comment that “We rolled lighter than that in an actual warzone”? The dominant visual aspect of the story, however, has been the sight of overpowering police forces confronting unarmed protesters who are seen waving signs or just their hands." —Walter Olsen of the Cato Institute on the Ferguson Riots
"The militarization of our law enforcement is due to an unprecedented expansion of government power… It is one thing for federal officials to work in conjunction with local authorities to reduce or solve crime. It is quite another for them to subsidize it. Americans must never sacrifice their liberty for an illusive and dangerous, or false, security. This has been a cause I have championed for years, and one that is at a near-crisis point in our country." —Senator Rand Paul on the Ferguson Riots

BOOM.
