composites

Brian Joseph Davis uses police composite sketch software to draw characters from books. This one is Judge Holden from Blood Meridian (or “middle-age Billy Corgan” as it is tagged).

    I was going to guess Voldemort.

    The nose gives him away.

    A little too pretty.

    The composite of Humbert Humbert is comically reminiscent of “Bob” Dobbs of the Church of the SubGenius.

    Cut him some slack, Sheila.

    True, Mr. Ledgerwood. Few portraits convey the charisma of the iconic image of J. R. “Bob” Dobbs.

    Speaking of which, if anyone is fixing to get hitched, know that I am a long-time ordained minister of the Church of the SubGenius.

    I can only assume you got the joke.

    Oh, yes, I did! As an ordained minister, I am well-versed in the Gospel of Slack. (And feel free to call on me any time to tend to your spiritual needs.)
