    Awesome work! I especially like the portrait of Harry Markopolos - you really anchored in his mental fortitude.

    That's quite a project you took on, Doug.

    I applaud you, resoundingly.... Your mastery of the craft is obvious but it's your expressiveness of these souls that comes through. You give them a place, you honor them in color and line. These brave souls.

    I hope this gets a wide audience and some shows, and a long tour, Doug. Those back to back of David Icke and Gary Webb are very striking. Icke looks like he's staring into the abyss. Max Spiers, Wilhelm Reich... wow. You even managed to make Kerry quite pretty

    Exquisite. Thank you so much for honouring Max Spiers in this beautiful way. I’ve asked a friend to tell his Mum, I expect they’ll both be so touched.

    Doug, I went to your website to read some of the bios of the whistleblowers and can't find where they are. I was interested because the beginnings of the bios in the magazine were so well written and intriguing.

    I was thinking what a beautiful book that series would make.

    Beautiful work PainterDoug. Much appreciation for your efforts and putting it all in one place.
    There are so many who have sacrificed themselves to ridicule, loss of income, family, and life itself so the people could have a chance to break free.
    You have offered us a truly RARE GEM.
