Saint-Colbert and his flock by tegehel Saint-Colbert and his flock by tegehel
His Holy Truthiness Saint-Colbert and his loyal flock of sheep.

--

What to look for: Mount Rushmore, the bald Eagle, the shepherd's staff, the bible, "Bread and Circus" represented by bread and a Gladius (the Roman sword), the Wriststrong, "sweetness" (his gun), the halo is a $1 coin with the text "Holy Truthiness of America". The sheep are marked with the initials of some states.

History:

I did this piece originally for the Colbert portrait gallery contest, but I didn't follow the rule 100% because Colbert is supposed to be saluting (army-like). However, in my case, it wouldn't have made any sense, Colbert being a saint and holding the flag instead, and I thought that it might make a better piece anyway.

I submitted it a few weeks ago, and it hasn't shown up in their gallery, while other pieces have. So I am assuming that it was rejected.

Let it be a lesson for all: I didn't follow the rules, and it is their right and it was my decision.

Rules or not.. They wouldn't include an image of him herding his flock :) lol...

I don't disagree with it, hell it should be framed, I just don't see them ever doing it.

heheh I agree (obviously). I think that you can submit it as a potential entry by dropping a note to the right person, either

All Galleries - $Moonbeam13
or
Digital Art - +ekud

Here's the FAQ: FAQ #18: Who selects the Daily Deviation and how is it chosen?

Thanks :)
