This is a great series, Phil. Taking a classic political cartoon style into a new arena.

love it my friend! i like the "thanks fo r witnessing" that seems to be floating away in the blood of the sufferer...the thanks seems to be the reward that this preacher is after. when he turns and walks away from the sufferer he will likely see only the thanks and not the blood. (of course is just my hermeneutic interacting with your art...).

thanks for posting these phil! oh, and sorry i missed you at greenlake with the little man yesterday...i was in class!

i love this whole series. you've done a great job bringing truth to the surface in a way that challenges the viewer in a very personal way...
keep it up.

i really dig the neo tim burtonish elements to these new pieces, it's risky, bold new territory for any artist involve text, you're making it work.
