Sores Amanos was the the alias of a young British man called Jac Holmes, given to him by the YPG, a Kurdish militia fighting ISIL. Devastatingly, Jac was killed in October 2017 whilst clearing the mines in the Syrian city, Raqqa. He was just 24 years old and one of the youngest British volunteer fighters. He was featured in the Channel 4 documentary, 'Frontline Fighting: The Brits Battling ISIS' shortly after arriving in Syria.
One of Jac's best friends was Tom Evans whose girlfriend commissioned this illustration, drawing upon their deep friendship which involved playing the sci-fi game 'EVE Online' and love of comic books. The giclée print is 16x20inch.
