Jove's Bapto-Mormonics

Religious nutters keep buzzing my doorbell. Here are two recent cold-callers who won't be coming back in a hurry. Click pic to enlarge.
Watercolour and pencil 15cm x 9cm.

This reminds me of old political cartoons. I would have loved to watch your interaction with them from the sidelines.

Lookout! You've got some skills--great work.

you are cookin' this week, Ellis. Are you washed in the blood of the lamb or what?

Terrific piece, and I agree with Chris about the old political cartoons. Wonderful, expressive style, and great take on the theme. btw, I cringe every time the doorbell rings because of those tie-wearing, bike-riding bible thumpers who feel compelled to save me.

Just lick your nipple when you see them. It gets 'em every time.

Tell them about the Flying Spaghetti Monster. All hail his noodliness!

These are "amazing" Ellis.. They DO look like old political cartoons(back when they GAVE a damn about drawing)

I cant' comment on the theme part though... Religion is a personal choice. Dont' wanna step on peoples toes. It would be like dissin' someone on their hair cut.

Those two must have a big budget. I swear they were at my doorstep just a few weeks ago! Love your blog.

Regarding religion, i'm neither one nor the other, and you're right, they shouldn't be knocking on your door disturbing your peace, but the way you made it sound.. didn't paint a pretty picture of Ellis Nadler.

Then again.. i dont know you.

*I'll just keep admiring your work though.. if thats ok.

Are their disproportionately large heads symbolic or were they also circus midgets? Just curious.

Ah, if they only knew your drawing was to be their real ticket to immortality!

I drew a cartoon once that showed a billion locks on the inside of a front door with these guys standing outside. It was called "witness protection."

I'll be here all week.
Is this mike working?
