Synopsis for "Drawn and Quartered!"Edit

An artist in Haiti realizes that he has been cheated by several people in the art industry and so seeks out native voodoo practitioners for vengeance. They grant him the ability to paint pictures with the property of voodoo dolls, so that what happens to the painting happens to its subject. Unfortunately he realizes that he has painted a self-portrait and so he must take care to keep it safe. At first, he locks it in a safe, but when he becomes short of breath he realizes that the safe is air tight, so he moves his self-portrait into the loft under the skylight. He draws a picture of his landlord and erases his legs. The landlord screams outside as he is driven over by a car and a bystander observes that his legs will have to be amputated. He draws a picture of an art critic and erases the eyes. Across town, the art critic's wife throws acid into his face in a jealous rage. He portrays another victim without hands whose hands are lopped off in a cutting machine. He decides to go see the art dealer who bought all his paintings for very little money and heads down to the subway, while a painter working above the skylight carelessly kicks a can of turpentine off the board and it comes crashing through the skylight horribly distorting the paints as our luckless protagonist finds himself thrown under the subway train to resemble the way his self-portrait now looks.
