I realize I’ve been very lax about posting things here on my blog lately, so I’m going to try to remedy that. Here’s the latest portraits I did for the upcoming July 2018 issue of In Touch Magazine.

NOT DOODLES: Any Questions?

Any Questions1AnyQuestions2Any Questions3Any Questions5Any Questions4

 

Every month, I’ve been tasked with illustrating a question mark for an online article series entitled “The Ministry of Asking Questions”. It’s been a fun challenge approaching the same symbol from different angles each time.

Chicken Duck Feet DETAIL

An illustration for a digital article to be published in September on the In Touch Ministries site.

It’s a bird with the head of a chicken, and the body of a duck. Wearing a bow tie.

Sometimes, I still can’t believe I get to do this for a living, folks. I am truly blessed.

Just a random sampling of some of my work for web articles on the In Touch Ministries site. Again, let me just say how much getting to work in a wide variety of styles appeals to my personality.

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

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.

These are the first three in a fun little collection of illustrations I’m doing for a web-exclusive series on the In Touch website. All quick, loose, and washy; they’re a blast to work on.

The past few months, I’ve gotten to work in a different style while doing spot illustrations for the “Letters to the Editor” page of In Touch magazine. One of the MANY things I love about my job is the opportunity to work in so many different styles and techniques. These simple line drawings with limited palettes are a refreshing break from some of the other, more intensive techniques I employ.

Of Pharisees and Tax Collectors

November 12, 2010

Here’s my latest for In Touch magazine. The article is about self-righteous vs. humble prayer, and it will appear in the February 2011 issue.

I used ArtRage for this piece. Once again, I have been blown away by the textural quality that can be achieved in this VERY affordable program. I highly recommend it to anyone, from student amateur to seasoned pro.
