Missionary position


Real deal Neill; what's up man. Hope all is well. I had a pretty fan-fucking-tastic week, so things are good here.

So this was a quick wind down image, hence the black robe. I used to have an idea I liked for a comic project that centered around a group of alien missionaries on some human colonized planet. It was sort of the wild west meets Blade Runner meets The Mission. In the end the missionaries are not only there to help bring humans to the lord, but they also are trying to stave off an attack, by the aliens bosses. It's a little complicated.

Actually it's not complicated, I just don't feel like typing it all out.

I thought the idea of us teaching aliens about some religion (I wasn't sure which to go with) and then hundreds of years later, they have adopted it, and are trying to teach us what we had originally taught them. I don't know, something there.

I guess throw it on the fucking pile of Doug idea's that never go anywhere.

Although, I have a cool idea for that other thing I'm kind of working out in my head. A book with like thirteen or twenty illustrations, and little blurbs in the page corners about the music that inspired the scene. Self publish. What do you think? What about the rest of you lurkers? Feel free to post. I know you're watching....I know. Don't worry Neill, they're good kids.

Any way man, hope shit is good. Drink a beer for me, and have a good one.

Doug

  1. Nice piece! I've been following your blog in my google reader for at least 6 months now and this is one of my favorite paintings you've posted.

    Also love how everything is a note to Neil, he's got to be getting these right? I mean I google my name all the time.

    Book? I'd buy that.

  6. Consarn you, Doug!* This idea of yours is a lot like one I had recently for a short story. Mine didn't have McDonald's bags in it, so I lose.
