    It reminded me of the 1945 Time Square photo, is that the one you’re referring to?

    Yep! Several elements are modern design. The silhouette, excellent use of negative space, the splatter-stars, and the fingernails that are back in style. Excellent art :)

    Agreed! The artwork is from an album cover of one of my favorite bands. I wish I knew the artist because I fell in love with this piece.

    The essence of the VJ-day one, but with a modern take. Problem is modern philosophy doesn't allow women to really love men like this, or champion their men. Hence the throwback style. Nostalgia for old times, simpler dreams, and more meaningful lives.

    I grew up with my grandparents so I get that; my grandfather and grandmother were probably in their mid teens during 1945. I’m thankful the experience of living with them since I probably would have grown up with a warped sense of patriarchy had I not lived with them.
