American Flag Selfie / Black Lives Matter (Re-Edit)

Here's work I started on the original "Proud To Be An American" created in 2008 when President Obama won office.

For the torn flag in the hair, I photographed old, torn, bed sheets. For the bleeding, bullet holes on my skin, I used red food coloring and silly putty. For the tears, I used honey on the side on an avocado.
