I was reading that NYT bit and ran into a blog post by a Mr. Chivers. I was intially taken by the amount of abuse some of the weapons had taken as well as their age. He had a slide of a bolt action rifle from 1915! I was amazed, and then I found this image.
I’s amazing!! I had always argued with a teacher of mine about grafitti. I had wantd to letter my own and she wouldn’t allow it as a class project. Told me that since it was created within the Acedmeic model it couldn’t possibly have the weight I wished it would.
When I saw this image I realized what she was actually saying. I stumbled (probably one day on stumble) across DESIGNER GUNS!
While the burberry really says high class, and sure the irony of designer tools isn’t lost on me, the concept of weapon decoration isn’t too different, other then in a way similar to my own graffiti attempts. Though I do love M4′s when they get all dressed up
