ARTIST OF WAR

Killian Duke, the hero of The Infidel graphic novel, who does his part with his art through his Pigman comic book.

And from a story at Dhimmi Watch:
'According to the Iraqi Artists' Association, at least 115 singers and 65 actors have been killed since the US-led invasion, as well as 60 painters.' Killed by Muslims doing Allah's work. more....
Even though we have the First Amendment, we're still in danger of paying a price for showing and telling the truth about Islam and its Jihad. In the Muslim world, Individuals have No protections whatsoever, even from paying a price for work that has a mere whiff of not being fully in line with Islam.

Quote from the article:

"In November Seif Yehia, 23, was beheaded for singing western songs at weddings, and painter Ibraheem Sadoon was shot dead as he drove through Baghdad. In February Sunni fighters killed Waleed Dahi, 27, a young actor, while he rehearsed for a play due to open at the Jordanian National Theatre this month."

Sick bastards.

I wish I had your talent for drawing. You do excellent work.

Hi, Bosch. I'd love for Stan Lee to meet the "Artist of War," given the former's comments that it would be silly for a hero to fight Muslims today. He obviously hasn't seen Pigman!
Keep up the good work.

This is why I am afraid of what they might do to you, Bosch. But please, Don't stop doing it! People need to stand up to them and Hollywood won't.

Mike Thompson said...

Another REALLY impressive one, Bosch. Eagerly awaiting the next blog post.

Phuckie Slum,

Imagine if our artists were dealt with this way on a regular basis, it would be inconcievable that our culture would take it, even considering how weak we've become. But it also says a lot about how much average Muslims are willing to take in Muslim countries.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Mississipimud/Jeff,

Thank you very much.


J.Maurone,

Appreciate that, and I would Love to get Stan Lee's ear for an hour or two about his comment, after he reads The Infidel.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Damien,

Appreciate the concern, it is a reality.
I'm not a soldier, but I've decided that I have to fight the enemy in the best way I can and that's through my art. We each, in our own individual way can do our part on the homefront in one simple way, by telling the truth again and again until it penetrates the minds of even the most determinedly ignorant.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Mike,

Thank you, as you can see, I just posted a new one. While awaiting word on a publisher, I figure I have a little more time to update the blog more.

Incredibly handsome and thoroughly gorgeous inside and out.....true heroes are hard to find but when you find one the world is indeed a better place.

Great drawing Bosch.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Rebel Radius,

Really appreciate that. We're always pressured to make our heroes smaller and less heroic looking than they can be, usually by those who are small and unheroic, literally and figuratively, but I can't do that, especially since it's up to me how my characters will look. Having the hero and villain as twins is a visual challenge for me, in that there will be clear differences after the initial intro of each.

Now he looks like he knows where he is going and what he is doing. Just like you Bosch. I also envy your talent and strength. I look forward to the day when history is made, and "The Infidel" is published. Do not stop.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Godfrey,

Thank you. About the publishing of the book, I don't want to say anything premature, but the interested publisher I mentioned a while back looks to be even more interested as of the other day. Will most definitely have an announcement if there's one to make, soon as something breaks.

Mike Thompson said...

Great, GREAT news, Bosch! Things appear to be heading in the right direction, as they should be. Looking forward to future updates.

Bosch Fawstin said...

I knew there'd be at least one publisher out there with the nerve to take this on, and I hope this comes about.
