Jesus turned over the money lenders tables to make the point that his Father's house was a place of worship, then corrupted my cynical, greedy men.

about the artist: Juan Doe an artist that strains the boundary between painting, propaganda, polemics, and philosophical discourse in art. He encapsulated a new age aesthetic through his command of the graphic process but with the masterful execution of a painter. His images are non-negotiable, they cannot be interpreted or postponed; they exist now, for the oxygen of the viewers eyes. A recipient in 2007 and 2008 of an individual grant in visual arts from the Bronx Council of the Arts, he is represented in the Bronx Museum (New York).

220px-Joe_hill002.jpg"The Death of Joe Hill" New York Times slideshowhttp://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2011/08/23/business/201108-joe-hill.html?ref=booksandliterature Joe Hill, born Joel Emmanuel Hägglund in Gävle (Sweden), and also known as Joseph Hillström (October 7, 1879 – November 19, 1915) was a Swedish-American labor activist, songwriter, and member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW, also known as the "Wobblies"). After his execution in Utah by firing squad for murder, he was memorialized by several folk songs. His life and death have inspired books and poetry.

Lyrics | Joan Baez lyrics - Joe Hill lyricsJoseph Hillstrom King (born June 4, 1972, Hermon, Maine), better known by the pen name Joe Hill, is an American author and comic book writer. He has published two novels—Heart Shaped Box and Horns—and a collection of short stories entitled 20th Century Ghosts. He is also the author of the graphic novel series Locke & Key. Hill's parents are authors Stephen and Tabitha King. Joe-Hill.jpg Hill chose to use an abbreviated form of his given name (a reference to executed labor leader Joe Hill, for whom he was named) in 1997, out of a desire to succeed based solely on his own merits rather than as the son of Stephen King. locke14.jpgLocke & Key #1, IDW Publishing, Negative Variant
