I haven’t done Biblical illustration in quite some time, but a couple of months ago I had the opportunity to do a whole series of illustrations for the story of Samson. It was pretty fun to be drawing Bible characters again!
So here’s something I think is going to be totally awesome. Rick Cantu is using a picture I did back in 2014 and turning it into a 3-D lighted sculpture. I love it. Ha! The brass tube front legs will be where he runs the wiring to light the head up and the feet, arms and miscellaneous other doodads with be mounted later. I can hardly wait to see this finished pumpkin light!
Hidden in pine trees behind the outer banks of North Carolina, you’ll find a fabulous little place called Camp Cale. For years there, stories have been told around the campfire of the epic wilderness adventures that Old Joe and his pet squirrel Goldie have had. This year for the first time, campers are actually going to get to see what Old Joe and Goldie look like!
I got my start in the “professional” art world by drawing caricatures in amusement parks (you can read about it here) but I don’t really like to do caricatures because there’s too much pressure to capture a resemblance so it’s been a LONG time since I’ve done a caricature of ANYBODY… but it was kinda fun to do this one of a really good guy, Derwin Gray.
Sure, the pig was a pretty good stick handler, but no one else ever got a chance to shoot when he was on the ice.. he was a puck hog.
Fun fact… ducks typically get going very early in the day… usually at the quack of dawn.
It was difficult to sell food at the teddy bear factory because no one was hungry… the teddy bears were already stuffed.
It was going to be a tough case to figure out, so the police commissioner assigned it to the alligator that always wore a vest. He was, after all, the very best inVESTigator they had.
I’m trying something a bit different on WorshipHouse Kids. I’ve loaded up a couple of five minute countdown videos that feature me drawing a picture from start to finish. I call them Drawing Board Countdowns. I don’t know if this will be anything people have a need for… but ya never know until you try. Here’s a condensed 20 second version of it.
A little known fact about dinosaurs… one of them was such a bad driver, scientists nicknamed it Tyrannosaurus Wrecks.
Last Sundays sermon was based on the little boy who gave his lunch of two fish and five delicious buttermilk biscuits to Jesus to feed a crowd of 5000. I was only able to get one of those two fish drawn before the end of the service. It woulda taken a miracle to get both of them drawn…
A few years ago I created a comic book based on the Biblical story of Zacchaeus called THE CHEATING LITTLE CHEATER. I made it so I would have something to sell at a comic-con I was doing in Kokomo, Indiana. I only have one of those little comic books left. Recently, I tore it apart digitally and reassembled it as a motion video. That version of the comic book is now available at WorshipHouseKids for churches to use…
…and if you should want one, it plays on personal tablets as well.
When I’m scheduled to play guitar or bass at church it’s a REALLY long haul. My church does three services on Sundays so I typically roll out of bed around six in the morning and then leave church around one in the afternoon. After the first service, I hang out in our green room with the rest of the band and singers to make sure we’re all on the same page and don’t need to make any changes. For the second and third services I usually sit in the congregation and draw on my iPad… I mean… take NOTES on my iPad. We are currently going through a sermon series on the book of John and here’s my iPad sermon notes from last Sunday.
