Brendan Smyth being led away from court, 1994. A defining moment in the relationship between the Irish people and the Catholic church. Looking into those eyes of madness on every screen and newspaper back then certainly did some damage to my - by then already fairly fragile - faith.
It also occured to me that since I didn't do an entry for seven deadly sins then this'd do a double shift as lust...if ever there was a man whose lust destroyed him, not to mention his victims, it was aul' Reverend Brendan.
Wow Jon, that is an astonishing drawing, really creepy but really good. It looks like it could be the illo to accompany a newspaper article.ReplyDelete
Incredible drawing Jon. Love the detail around the eyes, and the sullen smirk!ReplyDelete
Nicely executed, although as for a "fragile faith" it's best to remember that a child is 10 times more likely to be abused by a family member or a public school teacher . . .and I doubt we should do away with families or schoolsReplyDelete
