Lazarus Illustration

Here’s an illustration of Lazarus coming out of the tomb that I did for Holy Week.  It has what I can only describe as the Dante problem, i.e. hell seems more dramatic and interesting than the heaven that Lazarus is moving towards.  The two suffering souls are borrowed from Gustave Dore, so I guess you could say that the other problem with hell is that it’s derivative.  If I redraw it or paint it, I think I’ll change hell to a much drabber, impersonal place.
