"American Saint BigBoy #1" I drew this sketch just after Pres. Bush made his fateful speech after 9/11 which included the following:
"They have attacked America because we are freedom's home and defender; This crusade, this war on terrorism, is going to take a while, but we will rid the world of the evil-doers." I was afraid then that the aggressive conservative element now holding the reigns would take this opportunity to harness the nation's anger over the attacks and get busy making money while building an empire. Considering all that has happened over these past 11 years I'd say my fears were justified. Pencil, white charcoal on tinted paper. 10/1/01.
