The Missionary

Tjeerd Royaards: 'Another cartoon made during our stay in Haiti. The place where we're staying is literally crawling with (mostly American) missionaries bringing their version of the gospel to poor Haitians. Apart from the fact that it's condescending and colonial, you have to wonder whether spreading bibles and giving sermons actually helps solve anything. The character in the cartoon is based on an actual person staying here, probably the most obnoxious guy I've ever met.' This cartoon is available as a t-shirt design in our webshop.

Now that you mention it, he does look a bit like Micheal Moore! Not intented, although he's also a bit of a zealot in his own right.

I like your fat, pontificating American. Kind of looks like Michael Moore a bit?

It makes me so angry that they preach their 'there is only one truth' in places like Haiti, let them try in Amsterdam!

Hilarious. There are people like that on American college campuses too.

Unfortunately, I think this happens in other poor areas of the world!
The design of the face of the missionary is great !!!
