Veteran’s Day 2018

Filed under: DRAWINGS,History,Religious — Colby @ 1:15 pm

My church asked for a cover for their Veteran’s Day service.

In addition to the United States flag I included:

Dog tags to represent our military veterans. Poppies to illustrate the hope for an end to all wars. Military service seals for each branch of service (as gold medallions). References to two bible verses from John 15 and Psalm 18.

Sleepers Awake!

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Religious — Colby @ 9:45 am

This started out as an illustration for a concert. Our church choir performed Bach’s Cantata 140 and a few other selections at the Dallas Museum of Biblical Arts. I decided to make it my annual Christmas card (even though it’s really about Advent). The inspiration comes from Matthew 25.

I hope everyone has a merry Christmas and God blesses you throughout 2018!

Two Rules

Everything else just falls into place.

(No, this is not a “joke” cartoon, just a concept I wanted to illustrate.)

From Dark Ages to Renaissance

Filed under: History,PAINTINGS,Religious — Colby @ 7:46 am

With 2017 being the 500th year of the still-ongoing Reformation of the Christian church I thought it appropriate to do a painting of Martin Luther, the guy given most of the credit for starting it all.

My goal was to illustrate how this movement helped bring the world from the stark, black and white of the Dark Ages into the color of the Renaissance. But there is also the hint of flames and smoke because with every great advance the world is also set afire.
