“Some rise by sin and some by virtue fall.” Sex and hypocrisy abound in this dark comedy about the corruption of power and authority … and the true nature of love and justice.
Dwight Tablason is a high school art teacher, a tattoo artist, and an apprentice gardener. Originally from the Philippines, he immigrated to America at age 11 and found his love for art. After pursuing his illustration degree, an art teaching opportunity became available at his alma mater. He started teaching and sharing his love of art, and even after 11 years of teaching, each day is truly a unique experience and keeps him on his toes. Tattooing became another way to express and challenge his art skills… and also to make travel money! Dwight is married to his high school sweetheart, Jamie, who is a children’s book illustrator. During the pandemic, they picked up gardening with their two dogs, Lucy and Ted.

This idea uses the composition and design elements of Our Lady of Guadalupe, but the friar takes the place of the figure, along with the added scales of justice in the background. The lighter values on the friar reveal his true self and what he knows. I interpreted the title to say “an eye for an eye” and wanted to convey that sense of uniformity and balance.
