I'm still working on a schoolbook for Quebec publisher Lidec. Once again, it's for the new program Ethic and Religious Culture. It's a bold new program replacing the old religion/morality course that was there before. The goal is to show an integrated view of various cultures and religions, alongside our everyday pop culture references. So, you get an unusual mix of things to illustrate: Indu gods, points of view about what's freedom, gods of Babylon, the origins of species, Adam and Eve and...as shown today: The Terminator War. It's there to illustrate the concept of "end of the world" very common to many cultures.
