Riders of the Lost Art

Here are 20 things riding 20 different things. Mount up and enjoy the ride!

The Madness of the God King

The Madness of the God King by Ben Riddlebarger

I once saw a photograph on Facebook a couple years ago with a strong man in a swim suit pushing his friend in a wheelchair toting assault rifles and they were both happy and seemed to not have a care in the world. It was so strange and weird that of course I needed to draw it.

I based this drawing off of that. It morphed into a religious satire of this crazy world we currently are living in.

You can take it anyway you want…

Catching Dinner

Catching DinnerI drew this on Memorial Day. It was a stormy one and I ended up staying in on a day off. I was originally going to draw Austin Powers riding a Tyrannosaurus from a photo I had taken. Instead this came to life and I could not be more happy.  I would love if this inspires someone to write a short story inspired by this. If it does, I would love if you shared it with me.

Here is the picture I took that started this for me. Can you see the similarities?Oh Behave

Drawing Bible Verses- The Hypnotizing of She-Bears- 2 Kings 2:23-24

Professor Xavier and the She Bears2Kings 2:23-24 “From there Professor X went up to the town of Bethel. As he was traveling along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. ‘Get out of here, baldy!’  they said. ‘Get out of here, baldy!’  He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two she-bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.”

Drawing Bible Verses- The Tale of Ren and Stimpy Genesis 4

   Genesis 4

Adam and Eve had two sons, Ren and Stimpy.

Stimpy kept flocks, and Ren worked the soil.  One day, they both brought an offering to God. God liked Stimpy’s gifts much more than Ren’s. This totally pissed Ren off and he turned his face away from God.

God then said to Ren, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?  If you do what is right I will like you.  But if you don’t then sin is crouching at your door; it desires you, but you must rule over it.”

A few days later Ren took Stimpy out into the field and crushed his skull. God then screamed out to Ren, “Where is your brother Stimpy?”

Ren and Stimpy Cain and Abel

“I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

The Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. 11 Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.”

Ren said to the Lord, “My punishment is more than I can bear.  Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I am now a criminal and anyone who sees me will try to kill me.”

But the Lord said to him, “Not so, anyone who kills Ren will suffer vengeance seven times over.” Then the Lord put a mark on Ren so that no one who found him would kill him. So Ren went out from the Lord’s presence and lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden.

Drawing Bible Verses- Genesis 22- God commands Homer to sacrifice Bart

Homer sacrifices Bart --Genesis 22Genesis 22:2,6-10 Then God said to Homer, “Take your only son, whom you love—Bart—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you…

Homer took wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them went on together. Bart spoke up and said to his father Homer, “Father?”

“Yes, my son?” Homer replied.

“The fire and wood are here,” Bart said, “but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”

Homer answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went on together.

When they reached the place God had told him about, Homer built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound Bart and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son….

SPOILER ALERT- God did stop Homer right before he stuck the knife in Bart and told him he was just kidding and wanted to see how far Homer would go. He then  gave him a lamb that was caught in a thicket.  They killed it together but then Homer cut off Bart’s foreskin to show God he still wanted to hurt his son in His name.  The end!
