The Official Title Is

…..”Fat White Jesus Busts Some Light-sabre Moves In The Desert Before Performing The Miracle Of Turning Camel Pats Into Pizzas And Ass Wee Into Wine Beer”……

…but around here we affectionately refer to it as “pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew”…..

…acrylic & pyrography on recycled ply… 450 x 890 sans the re-purposed, “failed” crackle pattern frame…colours by Resenes (yay test-pots!)….

…a big shout out to the all makers of retro paint by numbers for the mesa “guidelines”…..without you this would have been crap…..

What Would Jesus Do

…if he were accosted by giant octopi?…

…and he could shoot flames out of his hands…

…and there was 5 of him…Scan 35

 

…my good friend Dee says that if she had the Sistine Chapel to do over she’d use this pattern.

Hum The Star Wars Theme

reality

far, far, far

removed from

the reality that the

….Tony persevered with his

movie themed Jesus illustrations..

…please forgive me George Lucas/Leonardo Da Vinci…

What If

…Jesus were suddenly attacked by a giant octopus…

Scan 28

…would he be able to defend himself with his special death-ray hands…

…or would that be un-chistian of him with St Francis day just past and all?…

…(it occurred to me while doodling for the tryptic series of a couple of weeks ago that the hand position Jesus is often portrayed as holding could be tipped on its side & used to represent a hand gun…like we did way back in school  when we couldn’t find an appropriate stick… and being as how he’s Jesus, he’d be able to shoot fire out the tips of his fingers…

…it would probably smell of brimstone…

…”pew” is a time honoured vocal imitation of a gun firing in NZ…

…and before the regulars ask….yes, I ran with this idea…

…see you back here tomorrow…).
