~ "it's hard for thee to kick against the pricks" (Acts 9:5 and 26:14) ~

Adam and Steve in the Garden of Eden

I made this spread in commission for Editio Magazine #3 with the theme "literature without borders".
Editio is a platform for writers in spe with tips from established writers, inspiring stories and interviews
with debut writers.

My assignment was to make a spread with four illustrations about my interpretation of the bible
and translate it to now. You see Adam and Steve intergrating homosexuality in religious context,
the refugees arriving safely in de West, the offer of iPhone (our baby) and a pieta with sexist (d)angels.
