Klingons Crossing the Delaware by judgefang Klingons Crossing the Delaware by judgefang
Some Klingon revisionist history based on "General George Washington crossing the Delaware at the Battle of Trenton on Christmas night 1776" by Emmanuel Leutze. Needless to say a big hit at conventions amongst Klingon fans.

I don't like this, I LOVE THIS!!! What better way to glorify the Klingon Empire and her people with a glorious sight! Glory, power and HONOR to the Klingon Empire! Also, the way its painted is so reflective of the original George Washington painting. Nonetheless, it does justice. HONOR TO KAHLESS AND THE KLINGON PEOPLE!

Yeah, sure. Email me privately at: leo@leoillustrator.com
The best I can do right now is a glossy giclee print that I make at home, but it comes cheap.

I am depressed that no matter how long I live, I will never see anything as awesome as G'horje Wa'shi'gn'taan crossing the D'khel'waar river to deliver the righteous wrath of a thousand Kahlesses upon the Hessians.

The actual piece is huge, it's 3x5 feet and currently hanging in my living room. I'm glad so many people like it, unfortunately the print for it has been rejected due to the inclusion of copywritten images. Maybe I can entreat Wil to help me out on that front.

And yet, only 10 comments to date. This is worth *MUCH* more than that. Revisionist humor notwithstanding, this is exceptionally well done. The concept is both amusing and thought-provoking, and the care taken in the brushwork is amazing. Wonderful detail in the uniforms and facial expressions. All in all, this is an outstanding piece. How big is the original?

Worf did point out that the Klingon Empire has a certain knack for rewriting history in their favor. ^^ And as much as I revere the Founding Fathers of the U.S., the vast majority of art depicting them was over-idealized (at least it was a common trait in the Romantic era).

So, if you think George Washington really stood gallantly like that on one frigid dawn …why not just have it be Klingons? :D

xDDDD OH MY GOODNESS.
This is awesome beyond belief. Like the greatest thing I have EVER seen. Ever. Why in the WORLD this doesn't have a million Trekkie-favorites is BEYOND ME. It's a wonderful painting - and even better subject matter! Trekkies of the universe unite! (or Niners, specifically, as the case is with me...) ;-; Sadly I've yet to go to a convention, though I'd really love to.

Well done!
