Description: This commission was for an article on the new atheists, and how they want to punish, even destroy all religion. The article specifically mentioned thought crime, which I used as the catalyst for the idea.
I've listed a number of the other ideas that were not used, as well.
At first read, I wanted this illustration to come across as a person praying, with their head bowed. In actuality, the figure is bound to a chair with his arms behind his back. A talking head n a projection screen behind him references 1984.
