Bradley tells us that he's not sure what the "final product" will be for The Sin of Man, but he's having fun playing with visual and textual storytelling. In addition to the paintings, he's written a poem, "The Nine Children of God," and a short story, "The River of Dreams."

You can see all of the pieces Bradley has made for his world so far at The Sin of Man website, but here a couple more of his favorites:
