Tin Dick gets a Heart

If you hadn't heard former Vice President Dick Cheney recently had a heart transplant.  The heart is to replace the implanted heart pump he had "installed" 5 years ago.

I don't know if this still classifies Dick Cheney as a cyborg anymore...but it's more fun to pretend he still is.

Anyway I wanted to create a piece that had ties to another subject that was in need of a new heart.  The Tin Man from "The Wizard of Oz."

It started out with a some sketches while I was watching the news.  At that point I wasn't sure if I was going with a heart clock, as in the movie, or a real heart.  I opted for the real heart, because Cheney already had an artificial one, and  he was replacing it.  But really I just  thought it would just look cooler.  YEAH MAN!!

Some work in progress.
Final Dick.
