Voltron Sketch Cards on Ebay

The Voltron series sketch cards are out and I just noticed a couple of mine are up on Ebay. I've got a couple I will be putting up in the coming days as well.

Until then check the current ones out...






and here.

The color actually looks much better on the cards, some of these scans are pretty crummy.

That's what friends are for...

Last month I finished this illustration for a subsidiary magazine published through Christianity Today. This was a fun one.

Thanks to my buddy Kramer who posed for the illustration.

Go Rent This Movie Right Now

I'm coming to believe that truly great films help me appreciate the immeasurable number of good things and precious people God has placed in my life. This was one of those films. Beautiful Cinematography. Beautiful message.

Favorite Illustrators: Annie Vallotton

A year or two ago, my beloved and I were walking around a local seminary. There was a stack of books and miscellany labeled "free." I must confess I get a rush out of anything free. Anyways in this stack were several copies of the Good News New Testament. A book-like copy of the New Testament from the 1970s replete with these charming little drawings. I stuck the item in the book shelf when I got home, and kind of forgot about it until recently when I began re-reading the Gospel of St. John. I pulled this thing out and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

I've often complained to my wife that Bibles tend to look aesthetically stuffy by default. And most illustrated Bibles, save for the Awesome Barry Moser illustrated Bible, are quite bad with their depictions of Jesus as a bearded lady with immaculately conditioned hair. I began rereading through this Good News New Testament, and was delighted not only in the easy readability, but the beautiful illustrations by Swiss artist Annie Vallotton.
The illustrations are beautifully simple, and give a delightful joy to its accompanying text. Every line drawn has a purpose and there's nothing there that doesn't need to be. They are confidently executed illustrations that are a joy to look at.

Sketch Cards

Just for fun, and to see if they'd sell I did some sketch cards over the weekend of some of the more famous Marvel characters. Each is based off a TV show or movie incarnation of these characters. They're all up on Ebay.

Bid here if interested: )

It wasn't just the lack of sleep that kept Sir Lucius Tolliver miserable. It was the murmuring second face growing out of the back of his head that did it.
