Here's the poster of a film that I'm proud to be in. It's a strong idea, beautifully executed and poignant. From the covering of the mouth to the extinguished flame, it's a superb way of showing the dire mess we're currently in when it comes to Free Speech. The film should be out sometime in the Fall.
Even with the bereaved of 9/11 on my mind 15 years after the atrocity, I don't want to see people crying over 9/11; I want to see
jihadists dying over 9/11. That's why I created Pigman. After seeing how Bush
didn't allow our soldiers to do their job and destroy the Islamic enemy, and then Obama making matters even worse for us and therefore better for the enemy, I needed to
see them pay through my art. That's how I commemorate the atrocity that our
government pretends didn't happen and has yet to avenge---at least until our
soldiers are unleashed on jihad. If you want to see the Islamic enemy pay for 9/11 and beyond, read my Pigman digital comic book on Amazon Kindle or on ComiXology.
spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, responded to my Facebook post where I wrote how I
discovered that she was at the Mohammad cartoon contest event/attack in
Garland. I was looking through a video on Garland and I saw her. I then did a search and found out that she even went on FOX News to talk about it a day after, where she defended the event and Pamela Geller, unlike her boss.
P.S. Here'smy original Facebook post, where you can read how I responded to her comment, and where you can respond to her as well.
This election is getting stranger by the day. tRump fans are accusing me of either wanting to die at the hands of jihadists or that I'm a jihadist myself. And then there are tRump fans who try to defend his indefensible attack on Free Speech, when he blamed those of us at the Mohammad cartoon contest event for almost being mass-murdered by jihadists. I wrote a little post about it on Facebook:
Here's my original Geert Wilders/Mohamamd cartoon that Brietbart exclusively published. And below is my tRump version, which explains why I would Never draw tRump in the position that Wilders is in, where he's smiling at a caged Mohammad. Despite what his fans think, here's tRump's actual position on Free Speech and Mohammad cartoons.
The most important issue we can be fighting for right now is Free Speech. And Donald tRump sold out Free Speech and essentially supported Sharia Law restrictions by condemning those of us who exercised Free Speech in Garland at the Draw Mohammad cartoon contest event and exhibition. He also smeared Pamela Geller and blamed those of us at the event for almost being mass-murdered by jihadists. Now, if today, tRump were to deliver a speech focused on Free Speech and its fundamental importance to our way of life, if he reversed course on all of the dangerous things he said regarding Free Speech, about how he wants to "open up" libel laws, and if he then invited Pamela Geller to the speech to personally apologize to her ... that would be completely unexpected and out of character for tRump. And then if he topped that all off by holding up my winning Mohammad cartoon, and offering to sponsor the next Draw Mohammad contest, well then, he might just win me over, me and Many others. Might.
I'm proud to announce that I will be part of a panel
discussion during an all day conference on Western Civilization and Islam,
organized by the American Freedom Alliance. There will be some incredible
thinkers and writers in the counter-jihad movement at the event (see their
names on the attached graphic). So if you're in the LA area, join us and hear
the truth about an issue that our culture needs to hear about, by those who
think it's so important, that they put their lives on the line to tell it.
As for Muslims who want to go Jihad at the event: Remember
"Thanks to a number of sponsors, AFA is able to offer a
reduced rate for tickets to this amazing event.
We have Bosch Fawstin, Nonie Darwish, Frank Gaffney, Robert
Spencer, Stephen Coughlin, Andrew Bostom, Admiral Lyons, and a long list of
other stellar speakers, most coming in from the East coast but others from
Europe, capping it off with Ambassador John Bolton as our keynote speaker- the
man whose name is being mentioned by Trump as a possible Secretary of State.
This is an astonishing line-up anywhere, let alone here in
Los Angeles. Help us show these courageous people that Angelenos care about
I discovered that my new Mohammad
cartoon that I drew for Geert Wilders was just published by Breitbart London.
And then I saw that it was also posted as the main story on the main page, Breitbart
.com. I've had my problems with Breitbart, which I called tRumpbart at one
point, but kudos to them for publishing a Mohammad cartoon in such a dominant
way. (something tRump would never do.) That is incredibly rare for popular
sites to do these days. Here's the link to their story.
Most people don't say a single word against Islam or Jihad. Most don't even say a word against ISIS. But some people do so on a daily basis. And Very few people continue to do so after surviving a jihadist attack. And then there's Pamela Geller. She survived a jihadist attack, she is specifically named by ISIS in their death threats, and yet she hasn't missed a beat in writing against this enemy on a daily basis. She does this, not as if her life depends on it, but because she knows it Does depend on it. What is life without freedom, without our ability to speak our mind, to tell the truth, to expose evil, to counter bad ideas with good ones? The Only way our military is Ever going to be Allowed to Finally do their job and defeat this very defeatable enemy is if the truth about it is made so nakedly obvious to all, that even blinkered politicians won't be able to deny it. That will force them to have to finally unleash our military against jihad, or else they'll be out of power, which, for them, is a fate worse than death. When they can no longer get away with not doing their job of protecting the American people, they'll do it. And it'll be people like Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, and a few others, who will make this a reality one day. I already did a drawing of Robert Spencer a few years ago, and I think it was about time that I did one of Pamela Geller. And to emphasize her heroism, I drew a comic book superhero version of her.
P.S. Here's the latest outrage on our government's response- or lack thereof- to the Garland attack.
I’m making available a limited number of high quality Artist's Proof Prints of my winning
Mohammad cartoon, signed "Bosch Fawstin, Artist's Proof" with the
date each is sold. It's 16 x 13 and is very close in size and look to the original
version. Order it below the graphic.
P.S. Here's the latest outrage about the cartoon contest.
My latest Mohammad cartoon, for sale. It was drawn and shaded in pencil, inked with a brush in black india ink, and drawn on 11 x 14 bristol board paper. I'm charging $350.00 for it, which includes shipping and handling. Order it below.
"The God of Basketball" is what Europeans called Michael Jordan during the first Dream Team in 1992. As you know, I'm a cartoonist, and this is a rare type of illustration by me, and it's probably the most representative illustration I've done, which I drew a good number of years ago. I drew it with oil-based colored pencils, india ink, and white paint, on 16" x 12-3/4 bristol board paper. There are slight smudges around the drawing and it's signed by me. I'm selling it for $4,995.00, which you can buy now with the button below the drawing. Or you can email me your best offer.
I drew this in the wake of the latest atrocity against police, where three of them were murdered. There's a book out now called The War On Cops by Heather McDonald, and it's true. There is a war on law and order, and those who represent it. Police officers aren't all perfect, and they're used in ways, by our government, that they never should be. But most of them are good men and women doing a necessary job, and we should always keep that in mind, even if we may encounter the one's who aren't that good.
