Bishop (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In “15 Portraits of Despair,” from Endless Nights, one of the stories features a priest named Dermont Byrne who is accused of inappropriate behavior with a young girl. He was told by the Bishop that they were giving the girl three quarters of a million dollars and that Dermont Byrne was forced to leave the church.

This is the Bishop.

He appears in Endless Nights, in “15 Portraits of Despair” on the third page.

This is an interesting portrait from Max. I definitely like his interpretation of The Bishop, but it’s definitely not a straight forward vision of what I imagine a Bishop would look like. His approach seems to be honoring the style of Barron Storey who drew the Despair story in Endless Nights. I really like this portrait. It feels intensely dark and very haunting.
