In Every Father Son, John Henry chose to focus on the life-changing and somewhat disruptive years of his own National Service by depicting the setting of a gun firing range. The soldier's face is masked by an ominous red traffic light to emphasise the strict adherence to the regiment, the loss of personal identity, and the seemingly slow passage of time while serving. In contrast, the gun firing range itself is depicted with lots of movement and visual noise to highlight the level of stimulation a soldier is put through. The only respite is to look up at the night sky and retreat into the stars for a moment.

Artist Bio:

John Henry is an ex-art teacher turned full-time illustrator based in Singapore who draws much of his inspiration from all the obscure and old cartoons, TV shows, and video games he used to consume while growing up in both Singapore and Japan. The illustrations serve as a form of therapy for him as he channels his self-deprecating sense of humour in a healthy and mostly aesthetic way. He thoroughly enjoys experimenting with a multitude of art styles as he struggles to build an artistic identity to call his own.
