As an artist and a Pastafarian, I deemed it necessary to heed the calling of his noodliness and commence work to bring His glory to the two dimensional surface.

And I have used the principles of composition, of values, of line, and chromas, and I have painted pixels in his image. Blessed be the FSM for giving us the rules of composition!

And I arranged the masses of light and dark, and behold, they pleased His noodly Eye. Blessed be the FSM for creating contrasts in value!

And I cooked spaghetti for visual reference, and rendered His holy form, guided by His Noodly Appendage. And I have consumed the spaghetti, and rejuvenated by this holy communion, I placed the highlights upon his noodles. Blessed be the FSM for creating light and shadow, so that we could see our pasta!

And I placed colours and pirate regalia upon the army of His deciples, and behold, I spent many a day putting details in their midst. Praised be the FSM for showing us the way, for to err is human, but to Arr is Pirate.

R’amen brothers and sisters, may the image of His Noodliness please thy eye.

    You need to paint that on the ceiling in the Vatican of the Holy Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    I applaud the idea, execution and description. I give a hearty “Aye!” to the idea of trading some plunder fer my own copy of said image.

    Maybe Pastafarian Miłek could team up with Bobby to sell posters, etc and then donate a share o the subsequent plunder to Kiva/charity – thereby spreading the love all around like a good Marinara Sauce. The Noodly Appendage is stronger than the Invisible Hand!

    Just a thought…
