RAINY DAY DOODLE: Strange Herbivore

October 9, 2017

It was a rainy, do-nothing Sunday afternoon, so a random unclassified herbivore bounded out of my brain. Sorry for the poor quality of the image; it was a quick phone shot.

NOT DOODLES: Of Prayerful Prophets and the Pressures of the Daily Grind

December 1, 2015

Elijah Praying SMALL

Elijah Praying DETAIL

Time Well Spent_small

Was trying to track down some illustration files from early last year, came across these two editorial pieces, and realized I never posted them.

The first is a graphic representation of the prophet Elijah, with the detail image showing how I tried to include symbols on his coat that represented different moments in his life where he encountered God in a mighty way. The black feathers represent the ravens that fed him when he was hiding in the desert; the green leaves for when he heard God in the quiet rustling; and the flames for when God consumed Elijah’s offering in a firestorm to prove His might over the false god, Baal.

The second piece was about keeping a balance in the way we spend our time, avoiding getting caught up in busy-ness. (But I’m sure none of us ever have that problem. Right?)

The top piece is done in acrylics, while the bottom piece is watercolor and colored pencil.

One of the rare meetings where I had a few colored pencils with me.

The good news: a more colorful doodle.

The bad news: got so caught up in the color that I didn’t finish the doodle.
