The Prophets

MAY 22, 2013
I did this asssignment for The Washington Post last month. It was a story about a nun, a painter, and a wanderer, all non violent activists who cut through chain linked fences and climbed over hills to get into a nuclear storage facility in Tennessee. Once there, they threw blood from a fallen comrades body onto the exterior walls, and spray painted passages from Isaiah as well.
The assignment was a lot of work and a very quick turn around, but in the end, I got a lot of positive feedback, and even sold a set of prints to someone who enjoyed the story and the illustrations.
