This scene depicts the words of James in 5:1-6 in the setting of 19th century Mexico. The greed and corruption of many landowners, and their oppression of workers seemed like a fitting picture for this passage in James.
I have worked as a graphic artist and as an Episcopal priest. I have loved both experiences, and now am seeking a way to combine the two vocations, to see how the experience and practice of both disciplines can be brought together to translate the bible into a way that will speak to our generation. My wife and I have recently completed graphic novel translations of Jonah, Amos and Esther, titled the Unlikely Chosen.
