Artist Pablo Stanley has illustrated the popular song “Imagine” by John Lennon as a comic that “tries to communicate that no matter your faith, we should all share the world in peace.”
It’s impossible not to read the cartoon and have the song not pop into your head…
Pablo noted in his blog, “this is NOT an anti-religion/atheist propaganda comic.” It’s illustrating world peace regardless of someone’s background and beliefs, uniting and accepting ALL faiths.
