Saint Ernesto

Just in time for Easter and Passover, my first drawing of 2010 (I know, I know, but I've been busy).

Che Guevara as San Ernesto by F. Lennox Campello, 2010

San Ernesto Guevara de la Serna Lynch, known to most of the world as 'Ché' and to many Cubans as 'El Chacal de La Cabaña'
F. Lennox Campello. Charcoal and Conte on paper. 15 x 10 inches.

In this piece I return to my iconic series on that psychopath murderer of Cubans known as Ché, the Holy Saint of the Ignorant Masses who have actually never read his hate-filled racist diaries, speeches or interviews, nor explored his abject failures as a guerrilla in Africa and South America.

If you want to buy it, contact one of the galleries that represent me.
