Chuck of Peace/Chuck of War (2011)

A drawing in Google (now Trimble) SketchUp as social experiment. Chuck Norris (movie star, martial arts) had a resurgence in online memes around 2010-12 and I noticed that he was a popular figure in SketchUp models of buildings, where a person is typically included to show building scale. I created two versions of Chuck, one who represented peace and one who represented war and watched the statistics to see which, version was downloaded more often from the SketchUp/Trimble 3D Warehouse.

As of March, 2016 Chuck of War has won: 555 downloads – to 404 downloads of Chuck of Peace.
