C.S. Lewis



It is written that we shall ‘stand before’ Him, shall appear, shall be inspected. The promise of glory is the promise, almost incredible and only possible by the work of Christ, that some of us, that any of us who really chooses, shall actually survive that examination, shall find approval, shall please God.

To please God...to be a real ingredient in the divine happiness...to be loved by God, not merely pitied, but delighted in as an artist delights in his work or a father in a son—it seems impossible, a weight or burden of glory which our thoughts can hardly sustain.

But so it is.


—C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory

Different Strokes



Here's a few spot illustrations I recently finished for an article on innovation and creativity. I drew them completely in Photoshop making use of a couple fancy brushes, minimal color, and minimal line. This was a fun experiment relying a great deal on spontaneity and a drive toward minimalism.

It was fun working against my natural tendency to over-plan things to death.

In Process: The Great and Terrible Dream



I'm currently staying up way too late after my bedtime working like mad on compiling a ton of drawings and a couple short stories to throw together into this book I'm making called "The Great and Terrible Dream". It's going good, and I'm currently clocking in at over 80 pages.

Still trying to figure out how to print it, and what to do with it.
