FIGHTING TERROR WITH TERROR

Retributive justice--pound for pound, measure for measure; a language Muslims should understand, provided they have no means to wildly strike out, to strike back directly or indirectly. What does it say about Islam, that agrieved Muslims, a good number of them, invariably lash out in misdirected fury and in unjustified (objectively speaking) and disproportionate violence?

John,

Retributive Justice, exactly right. In a sane world, the enemy woudn't be getting away with it as he is. Enter Pigman who, like Batman, forces the world to make sense.

Bosch, my friend, how in the hell do you keep outdoing yourself? Jeez, that is the most intimidating PigMan I've seen to date. The speed lines surrounding him give the impression of a quickness that belies his massive size (perfect for quick, decisive strikes against the enemy). I also love the feathered edges you gave the spot shadows in his costume. Brilliant. My absolute new favorite.

And you are right...it's going to take out of the box thinking and actions that we've never considered before (unspeakable ones)to bring an end to this threat once and for all.

Mike Thompson said...

One more thing, Bosch. Looking back at your earliest sketches of PigMan, and comparing them to how he looks now, there is definitely a greater personality to his appearance. As if he is a natural extension of you. As if he's been around all along. "Classic" I guess is the word I'm looking for to describe his final design.

Sorry to ramble...hope you get my meaning. You are just so damn good.

Bosch,
I agree with Mike concerning this image of Pigman. When I first saw it, I said "Wow! Too cool!" And you and John are right about what needs to be done in order to obtain real peace. Many today like sausages, but not how they are made (if you know what I mean). If I was to rate your work, this one would be in the "Top Three", at the Top. Please make it a T-Shirt and stuff!
Thanks for all you do!

P.S. Thanks for that link to Fitna. The best 15 minute documentary I have ever seen (Bar none).

Mike,

I appreciate every word of it, thank you, and I do get your meaning. There's definitely been a progression in Pigman's look and the more I draw him, the more I'm enjoying it and the more he turns out how I want him to.

Godfrey,

Thank you very much, glad you like the drawing and good analogy about how the achievement of peace is not a pretty picture. It never has been and it never will be, and it is most definitely an achievement, which is why there is no peace coming from the religion of peace, an anti-achievement culture if there ever was one.

Oh man, I want this one as a t-shirt.

That's great, Bosch.

I'm gonna get all my friends and Muslim friends to buy as many of your books, merchandise and other stuff and then burn it all, then post it on myspace and then encourage other to buy as much of your stuff as possible and let them burn it plus have them advertise what they are doing and encourage them to get people to buy/burn stuff.

Yeah how do you like that then?

Bosch Fawstin said...

Thanks, Pastorius, good to see you here.
