I recently received an email from a pastor asking me to upload an old piece of artwork onto my ImageKind shop so he could order a print of it and I said sure, no problem… but when I finally found the twenty year old gouache painting hidden in the corner of my studio I felt like it could use a little digital makeover, so here are a few before and after shots of what I did to it.
In 2005, Zondervan and I created the See With Me Bible. The concept was to tell Bible stories with pictures only, no text, a wordless Bible… a concept that was perhaps a bit too abstract for the time. After a few years, the See With Me Bible was pulled back into the shop, given a tune up, full text and re-released as the Read With Me FOR TODDLERS.
I consistently get email from people who have worn that old See With Me Bible out and want a new copy of it, but sadly, the See With Me has gone the way of the buffalo. I did find a used copy on Amazon for quite a reasonable price…
…and I just want you all to know… if you are lookin’ to spend that kind of money, I just might be able to find a few copies in my closet that I could sell you for half that price! 🙂
When I was growing up, one of the things that always bugged me was the way an angel looked in a Children’s Bible… a frail little fellow walking around in his moms white bed sheet sporting a 1970’s Farrah Faucett hairdo. I had no idea what an angel actually looked like, but surely not that… which is why without proper adult supervision, my angels always turn out looking something like this.
