The Path

I recently finished up an illustrated outreach booklet that an area pastor & I collaborated on.... He came to me with the idea, basically finished, but he wanted it to be a visually engaging booklet that someone (non-Christian & new Christian alike) would want to pick up & read.

It turned out really well, and it's a great tool for ministry. He writes from a very down-to-Earth perspective with a sincere heart, pointing out Biblical truths that are both easy to understand & hard to ignore. A must-read for anyone with questions about becoming a Christian.

The booklet is 12 pages long, with Scripture and striking imagery coming together to produce a formidable tool for spreading the Good News, challenging readers to take it upon themselves to dig deeper and find out more.

If you'd like more information about the booklet, contact Sam Wrisley of Harvest Christian Fellowship.

UPDATE (1-26-2007): Pastor Wrisley will be traveling to Liberia in a couple weeks, and he's taking 500 copies of this booklet to hand out at a leadership conference put on by Revive Liberia Missions, Inc. Listening to him talk about it, I've learned the situation in Liberia is a dire one. I know God will use the booklet mightily, and I'm glad to have had the chance to work on something that will reach so many people.

Have A Merry [Little] Christmas

This was part of a quickie cover for a Christmas music mix our sales team put together for everyone..... the title of the mix was "Have A Merry Little Christmas" so I made this "little" guy the MC.

Illustration Friday: GHOST

I guess I've been in cute-girly-mode lately. Even my ghosts are turning out that way.

Voodoo Woman

Ohh they call me the voodoo woman
Ohh and I know the reason why
Ohh, if I raise up my hands now
Don’t you know the sky begins to cry!

I gotta rabbit foot in my pocket
A toad frog in my shoes,
crawdaddy on my shoulder
Looking dead at you

I got dust from a rattlesnake
And a black spider bone
If that don’t do it baby
You better leave this girl alone

3 Cheers for Football Season

Football season’s almost here.

You can still brag about your team (for the time being)... They can’t prove you wrong. Yet.

Illustration Friday: CAPTURE

This lass (who just happens to resemble my wife... coincidence?) done captured a thought. It's..... wait for it...... "think pink". Get it? Because the word "think" is actually pink. It's a play... on... words....

She's wearing a logo tee of a certain someone, too, God bless her.

Surfer Girl

I have watched you on the shore
Standing by the ocean's roar
Do you love me... do you surfer girl?

Design Inspiration Interview

A big thanks goes out to Jeff Andrews for including me on his Design Inspiration blog. The site is described as
"A place to introduce talented illustrators and designers to other creative professionals in their industry. A forum for new talent, a venue to be seen and noted."

I always think it's cool to see how other artists started out, and get a glimpse into their thought processes and schtuff. Hopefully this can give everyone a suitable peek into my life & times.

Check out the interview here.

Illustration Friday: DANCE

Since this was a last-minute effort, I thought I'd experiment with the old illustration-on-top-of-an-actual-photo trick to save time.


Here's a quick color of a spot (actually published in black/white) I did for a kids' activity book.

Genesis 24:18 "Drink, my lord," she said, and quickly lowered the jar to her hands and gave him a drink.

Illustration Friday: PORTRAIT

It was cool to see this week's IF topic in my inbox this morning, because I had just finished this quasi-caricature portrait for a coworker & friend of mine. His son is playing John Darling in his school's version of Peter Pan, and he wanted a caricature done to commemorate it.

I did the outlines in pencil & then colored in Photoshop. Worked out pretty well.

Her Hollywood glamourmeter is a bit low, but she does have that "Goth-Glam" thing going for her. And the unstoppable little black dress, to boot.
