Wow, wonderful illustration, very powerful, humerous, deep. It kind of throws up lots of different thoughts. Well done


Neat, no counterbalance at the other ear.

Laurie Knight:

This is fab! Well done!

I love this! It's really striking and quite unforgettable.

Wow, this is powerful; makes perfect sense, too. Sinner actually means imperfect, not evil. It makes you reflect; very very impressive. Congrats!


Like it!

Dr. Bob:

Forgive me, Father for mentioning this...

but the elongated neck and head remind me of a certain male body part that priests aren't supposed to use.

Were you intending this or is it my depraved mind?


Yup, he's kind of a dick-head!

John Cox:


That's just caricature business. Goofing around with proportion.

If you see something deeper, that's the nature of illustration work; it's open to subjective meaning.

And, uh...stay away form Rorschach tests. NOTHING but dirty pictures.

Ed B:

Pssst! New season of Jersey Shore is playing on MTV tonight. Pass it on.


Hmmm... Carula raises another point John [inadvertently] referred to using the theme of faith to illustrate Leftist cognitive distortion.

The moral to the story is this:

The fact that one professes a belief in a higher moral standard does not make one infallible--nor does it make him a hypocrite--if he stumbles & fails to completely live up to that standard (unless he does so habitually & with disregard for the standard he professes).

It's better to have a high bar that few can reach yet make the most of themselves in their attempt to attain it than to have a bar set so low that any lummox can lumber over it, declare victory, & park himself on his keister.

John Cox:


Well put. Striving for higher standards while recognizing your faults plus showing empathy towards others:

We can do that, right?
