I doubt very highly that you'd find a ratmobile or a giant penny in there. Very cool image. Another excellent t-shirt emblem I might add.

Love this one, the symmetry and the aura of menace. The jihadist's worst nightmare. Just can't wait for Pigman to find a publisher. If "Jewel of Medina" can find someone --- UK's Gibson Square -- willing to take the risks to help save freedom of speech for a silly romance novel, then there will be someone with the guts to put a work of real value out there. Whichever way this election turns out, the time will come.

None of that, Mike, ha, and thanks.
I just mentioned this at SOLO.com: The idea is that Pigman walked into the cave as if he owns the place, with it taking on his shape, the gray in the piece echoing his head and shoulders, and the Tower shadows being placed where they'd be on his chest.

revereridesagain,

Thank you, and regarding publication of The Infidel/Pigman, I'm growing more confident that there will be a publisher for the book in the end, regardless of how many reject the idea outright.

Mike Thompson said...

Very subtle, my friend. The entrance did remind me of PM's silhouette. It did not occur to me, however, that the shadows were the towers. Very cool.

"He walks into a crowded room, at least 100 jihadists in sight."

Interesting conversation today with a woman who had been a Hillary supporter, is outraged that the Dems chose Obama as their candidate, and intends to vote for McCain. She admires and trusts McCain but has no use for Palin and believes she was chosen to gain favor with conservative Republicans. (Which appears to be a) true and b) working.) What was interesting was that her aversion to Palin was based on similar reasons as her opposition to Obama: perceived lack of experience and stature. Their political views were almost a secondary consideration.

Are many former Hillary supporters who rejected Obama in favor of McCain dismayed at his choice of Palin? Probably. However, it is likely to attract more than enough conservative Republican women -- especially "social conservatives" -- to offset any loss of former Clinton supporters, who are perhaps as likely to turn to a third party candidate, abstain, or vote write-ins than they are to join Obama's camp.

Got an email tip to check out "The Secret War With Iran" by Ronen Bergman, to be released Tuesday the 9th, according to which Bush plans to attack Iran before he leaves office (presumably after the election and before the inauguration) and Iran is going flat out on the nuclear program to try to beat the clock. Not exactly new to us, but a reminder of what the stakes are in the short run as well as the long.

Very evocative and iconic. I did think that the outline of the cave resembled Pigman's upper outline, but the other comments and another look revealed to me the towers that his shadow makes. By the way, I miss Pigwoman. I'm not being politically correct, I just miss that such a great character. And heroes need help sometimes, don't they?

Robert Jones said...

Not just iconic, symmetrical and stark, but -- tell me if I'm wrong -- the shadows of Pigmans legs represent the Twin Towers.

Can't wait to buy the book!!!

P.S.: I love Sarah Palin, her politics and her social conservative values. She puts her money where her mouth is.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Thanks, Godfrey, and we'll be seeing Pigwoman again.

Robert, indeed that is, good catch. I can't wait either, believe me.

And Palin does come off as solid and true to herself. We've got us a real race now.
