The American Jesus is a character intended to help modernize the mythology of Jesus of Nazareth to help create a more marketable product, suitable for brand outreach, product placement, and merchandising opportunities. This re-branding effort is a pro bono project on my part to help the southern states’ prominent Evangelical movement reach out to the youth market. By refining, streamlining, and updating the mythology of christianity, faith can finally be made relevant to the modern world. This will help sell the story, and the product, of the savior to young people. With these prints, the dogma of the creationist movement comes to life, as the Ameressiah triumphs over the forces of Science and Reason, with thrilling action sequences and exotic set pieces. And if you want to sell to the youth market, you need to include ninjas and the rock and roll music that the kids seem to like.
I’m still looking for a movie deal.
If you’d like to purchase any of the prints in this series, please consider my store.
