The folks who are so worried about sinking into the quicksand of demographic history won’t be here.
Face Value* by comparison.

I know a little bit about the bible. I have an M.Div. for Christ’s sake; it’s one of three graduate degrees for Pete’s sake! I may no longer be an ordained Benedictine monk, but I sure as Hell sat through my share of biblical studies, theology, even Greek courses. Most of them were fascinating. I had a brilliant seminary professor, one of several like that, in fact, who approached the study of sacred scriptures from a literary-criticism perspective, steeped in critical hermeneutics, semiology, and philology…right up my alley. He planted the following image in my mind (I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.):
Last night, May 6, 2018, while watching United Shades of America, catching an interesting and informative episode focusing on Sikhism, seeing my first Californian Sikh almond farmer, and being intrigued by the turban (click here to view a gallery from the show), I sketched the following image on my iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil, using Sketch Club and iColorama:
Well over 100, and counting, of my digital (iPad) cartoons, doodles, and photo-mashups about this nightmare, dating back to late 2014: This Post has been converted into a Page (See above) called Trump Gallery since it keeps on growing.
The documentary, Dolores (Independent Lens) http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/films/dolores-huerta/, prompted me to draw her in part from a photo I found online here. I did so on an iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil in the Procreate app, which allows you to export a time lapse video file as well, see helow.
One of my favorite quotes:
We have two lives – the one we learn with and the life we live after that.

You may have noticed a Pencil theme on this illustroblog, as I have illustroblogged on and on about this remarkable tool. There are some 20 odd posts about the Pencil here at portfoliolongo.com; click here to see them before checking out the following YouTube video that my wife shared with me this morning, prompting this pencilographic post.
PS There’s even a Pencil Gallery on the home page, second gallery down.
I hope I don’t have to unpack this one, but please let me know if you’d like me to. I will say this much. Nobody says “One Corinthians” or “Two Corinthians,” except for President Do You Have Prince Albert in the Can. So there’s that. Now about Paul’s First Epistle to the Corinthians, Chapter 13, spiritual maturity, love, faith, and hope, oh and dirty mirrors, you’ll have to read it on your own. I’m so fed up with fundamentalists staggering into politics…ok, that’s all I’ll say. That reminds me, it’s forgiveness that we need, as we discussed before here.
