Strong solid and bold - the white is dominant and completely eradicates the black.

Good (white) versus evil (black)

The black and white on the chessboard where the "white" out ranks.

A delicate off-the-shoulder cut to the tee-shirt and the billowy sleeves denote feminity. It is also chants to me "burqa free"

The most powerful and indeed the most desirable piece on the chessboard is the Queen.

White represents virtue in femininity and virtue in heraldry.

The exposed neckline is the crux of the drawing (methinks). The curvature of the flag and the neckline superbly represents a sabre. The neck is black and the head is missing. The sword of Islam has scored an own-goal.

Rebel Radius,

Thank you very much for your thoughtful breakdown, you brought far more to it than intended, it's simply my idea that Pigman makes the enemy go white, in this case with 'The Black Flag of Islam', an actual flag that goes back to the days of Mohammed and his Muslim armies.

Rebel Radius,

There is also another way we could interpret this. In our culture at least, and maybe the rest of western culture, a white flag represents surrender. So maybe it could be said that Pig Man will fight them to the bitter end until they surrender and submit! I don't know if that is what you intended Bosch, but it is good symbolism.

Bosch Fawstin said...


That's right, it's Pigman turning the black flag of Islam into the white flag of surrender, or more fittingly, the white flag of submission.

hahaha, excellent work, bosch.
can't wait for that day to happen.

rebel radius,

My first impression is that the white flag represents surrender.

Mike Thompson said...

Powerful image, my friend. Excellent as usual.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Mike, Phuckie Slum,

Glad you like it, it's pretty stark but gets the point across.

Rebel Radius said...

Excellent analogy Damien.

Phuckie: yes indeed, I did miss the surrender bit. To be honest surrender is something I never give thought to.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Rebel Radius,

Damn well put, same here, but with this enemy, submission is the end all be all, not just for them, but for all.

Godfrey of Utah said...

But of course the white flag would mean the surrender (submission) of the Islamothugs! And one can only imagine that a Koranimal would turn white as snow, upon seeing a Pig-like man charging them and making them pay for the evil they have done under their black flag. If it were up to me, we ourselves would raise the black flag against them. No quarter asked or given!

Bosch Fawstin said...

Damn right, Godfrey, our not answering the enemy in kind is what's got us in this pathetic position we've put ourselves in, where the enemy is still able to kill at will.

Actually the first flag of Islam was a plain white flag.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Actually, the last flag of Islam will be white.
