This is one of my designs Stars4Peace there are other variations I know the plain one was already submitted by a friend...there are others...including this design on the full flag.. I did it on canvas and then it was done with the help of Alan Shear to computer.. It is the only time I've ever seen it done geometrically correct and there is a trick to doing it, I had to figure it out for weeks, and even had to show Alan how to do it the same way on computer! I submitted it to the Library of Congress Art section to Copyright my design and they freaked out big time and refused me any copy right.! I sent this to Milton personally immediately after doing it, he saw it before any outsider and was willing to give me any help I asked of him but I think he really liked it..! The Art Section of the Copyright bureau argued with me and at one point when I brought up "Intellectual Property Rights" told me to call Lou Dobbs! Also it is done to government scale and government spec. there are two versions or sizes one so big a flag for flying from bridges could be made or and can be projected onto buildings or even into the sky possibly! I sent it around everywhere no bits of takers even when offered always for free usage!

It seems when you do something truly original the public does not get it..I've learned that on several occasions.. If you Google Stars4Peace you'll see other variations of my design.. one thing Milton a true genius of design and I both know about it shooting an image or even writing or making a statement that goes to the Back of the Brain and Stays.. that was my purpose for Stars4Peace and also much of my song writing as well.. My songs are different and often unique lyrically which is why many producers and radio stations don't know what to do with them..! One example is my song Murder in the Heartland.. Not many people write a song that is meant to not be liked or leave one uneasy.. one person heard it and said that song is horrible and I said Thank You it's supposed to be..!
