The Rise And Fall Of The Patriot (poetry)

illustration of The falling of the poet through hell, gave us the imagery of an afterlife landscape. An uncanny topography full of fated human beings and evil demons. They make sure to apply the punishment to the poor people. Crowds in sadness and pain. The illustration depicts such deadly sins as: pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth or laziness. The Miserable Ones, victims, angry people. A ruthless thief. Fury, violence, lies. The soul's journey towards God according to Catholic Church.
Next illustration of The Fukushima problem, where the natural disaster triggers a much greater problem. I came up with the absurd idea of a totally flooded Tokyo city, took by giant Koi fish (replacing the traditional Japanese godzila myth, the terrible irradiated monster who destroys everything). The revenge of nature. But in this case a somewhat cynical revenge: in Japan these domesticated fish are the symbol of luck and an icon for the East. But they may also mean genetic mutation and human caprice.

Radioactive Tokyo / Climate change.
