Happy Easter! & I am my favorite subject to draw!



So today is Easter (it's 2am, so technically yes it's Easter already)! And for a second I was considering waking up and going to church with my parents. But then I remembered an incident a year or two ago when I went to their church for a Good Friday service. At the end of the service the pastor instructed the congregation to come up to the front and pound nails into this piece of wood symbolizing the cross. This was because "since all of us are sinners, we are all responsible for Jesus having to die on the cross and therefore we all pounded the nails into his hands and feet."

Bull. Shit! As people got up to form a line to go symbolically nail Jesus to a cross I walked out.

I honestly don't get the point of Jesus. I really don't. I'm not ready to consider myself agnostic because I really think God's there, but I can't even begin to understand what he's doing. So that's my Happy Easter message to you! lol

If you're spending time with family today, hope it's good times. I will hopefully be sedated with some pain pills before dinner and maybe I can sneak a glass of wine. I'm only hanging with old people tomorrow so no egg hunts ): Also, if you didn't get a chance to read my Easter Sex Gift Guide I posted awhile back, here's a link. (:

This is another self portrait I did. It's not exactly what I was hoping for, but it's the first in a series of drawings I'll be doing so hopefully they'll be getting better. I'm copying the amazing Jason Sho Green.

It was Caiphas' fault, not everyone else in the whole Christian world. Love the self-portraits.

Great drawings! I think the nailing would've freaked me out...

I love the portraits. Sexy!

I wouldnt get the nailing too, I think. But I hope you have a great time. Not exactly easy with lots of old people but the wine would help.:)

Great pictures on this post and the last one.

And someecards is great! I love that site!

And I'm not sure whether God is there or not, but I don't get the point of religion in general, and I think this is a good example of it.

You don't go to church, and they tell you you're horrible because you don't believe and you don't give your time to God and whatever.

And then you go to church, and you're told you're a sinner and you're responsible for Jesus's death.

So I stay away from churches and religion where even if they think I'm a terrible person, they're not around to tell me how terrible I am.

You are an awesome artist! I love those drawings!!!

I'm completely unreligious - this weekend I got told off for saying that Easter was "all about the chocolate and some bloke named Jesus...I think he was a Brazilian"! I thought it was funny anyway! x
