Post Number 187

Here is a drawing I did for the review of the documentary The Pat Tillman Story in this week's New Yorker. Pat Tillman gave up a contract to play football with the Arizona Cardinals to enlist in the army, and was then killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan. The government tried to cover up his death by saying he was killed while fighting off a Taliban attack, and use his unfortunate death as propaganda. The review says that one of the more memorable moments in the movie is when one of Pat's brothers, Richard, publicly responds to religious pieties with the words "He's not with God. He's fucking dead." The movie is playing at BAM starting on January 6th.
