    A little mini-comic (two pages) I created recently that may be of interest to the Spirituality Forum.

    Thanks. But in the interest of full disclosure, I will reveal that I worked almost exclusively from reference material that I stole from the internet. I suspect that's nothing new to comics, but they tend to go to greater lengths to cover their tracks than I have.

    Plagarism is theft, theft is a sin...

    I don't think Jesus would be in favor of copyright laws. I think he'd be an 'open source' kind of guy.

    The two are not mutually exclusive. Open source lives perfectly well in an environment with strict copyright laws. He would probably have advocated the creation of open source as it counts as helping your neighbour, buy the real question is whether or not Jesus would have encouraged violating copyright laws.
    He was generally very reluctant to openly criticize unjust laws, and as far as I know never directly encouraged breaking laws.

    That was the old Jesus. In his second tour of duty he's tired of screwing around.

    I think the phrase he used was "render unto ceasar..."

    I'm sure you are aware that there are many varying interpretations of that phrase.

    Haha, this reminds me of a Jack Chick track in its style. It's awesome, even if you did lift most of it from other places.

    Just the reference images. I actually did draw them into their black and white configurations. For example, here's the image I used for one of the panels. You can compare that to the finished product:

    http://www.google.com/imgres?q=bank+of+america+executives&start=291&num=10&hl=en&biw=1399&bih=991&addh=36&tbm=isch&tbnid=err9g0eO3yYekM:&imgrefurl=http://www.nj.com/business/index.ssf/2009/04/19-week/&docid=15mv7qHyQwabgM&imgurl=http://blog.nj.com/business_impact/2009/04/[WORD TOO LONG]

    On some, like the cover, I used several reference images to arrive at the finished product. Some are looser adaptations of the source photos and some are more literal. I only bring this up because I think many people would expect that I crafted the final images solely from my imagination, with perhaps only a furtive glance or two at any reference material. But that is not so. I heavily accessed reference material for the creation of the final imagery for this particular project.

    Even I can appreciate that. It might be worth considering for some Christian phamplets to be given away to this new generation.
