We’d seen this portrait of George Bush — made up of pictures of American soldiers killed in Iraq — floating around the web. We heard yesterday that it’s the work of local artist Eric Baker, who owns a design studio in New York. But it turns out that’s not true.
“I wish it was,” says Baker. “Somebody sent it to me and I sent it out to a gazillion people.” Baker also got a query from neighbor and New York Times media reporter David Carr, wondering if he was the man behind the image.
Baker, who knows a thing or two about art, says the Bush death image is created by a software program. “This is one of those anonymous images that flies around the world,” he said.
