This is a project I worked on a few years ago for a now-defunct magazine called Re:generation Quarterly. The text is from John Donne's Holy Sonnet 19, and my friend Nate came up with the image ideas after seeing a piece by Chris Ware. I did the drawings with Adobe Illustrator. It's a sort of parody of the Jack Chick-type tracts with demons and lots of hellfire.
It ran in the magazine as a two-page spread, but we also made a Fold-Your-Own Tract (PDF) which has instructions for printing it out, folding, cutting and stapling it to make a small multi-page tract for distributing at random. You can make your own here, or buy it from the Art-o-matic for a dollar!
