I drew this to encourage you when you go against the flow.

My question marks represent mystical mystery and unknowing, whereas my exclamation marks represent the zeal of fundamentalist certainty. 

I remember, growing up in church and in youth group, that we were always being pressured to go against the flow of the world. We were taught that the whole world hated us and persecuted us for our faith, and that we needed courage to believe, even in the face of martyrdom. 

Now I know where true courage is needed - in distrusting the comfort and security of propositional truth and in embracing mystery.

Mystery, unknowing, and uncertainty are not steps to facts, knowing, and certainty. No! Rather, they are a way of life.

This piece is a reminder that it’s good to question collective belief, even if it results in the extra effort of swimming upstream against the flow. 

- Pen and ink on high-quality art paper.
- It measures approximately 8"x8" with enough room for matting and framing.
- Not matted and framed, I suggest white double matte with a black frame.
- Each original comes with a letter of authenticity signed by me.
