Myrrh

My Christmas card for 2015. I decided to go for a more whimsical approach. All in fun.

Las Posadas

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Religious — Colby @ 7:44 pm

I was asked to do an illustration for an Advent concert. I tried to avoid the typical nativity scenes, and shepherds, and wise men and so on. (People tend to get confused about Advent and Epiphany and just lump them all together into “Christmas.”) I wanted to depict Mary during her pregnancy and the ordeal of their search for lodging. In some cultures this is observed as, “Las Posadas.”

Instead of the usual illustration I took a mosaic or stained glass approach.

This is not a new cartoon but I don’t think I’ve shared it on this site. I post it now because a lot of charities, churches, etc. go through their fiscal stewardship efforts this time of the year.

He Is Risen Banner

Filed under: Religious — Colby @ 4:07 pm

In April, 2009 I posted a drawing I had done for my church for Easter. Another church contacted me asking permission to use my drawing as the basis for a banner they wanted to do. I agreed. They made some changes and shared the final result. I think it looks really nice.

Joseph and Baby Jesus

Filed under: DRAWINGS,History,Portraits,Religious — Colby @ 1:20 am

This drawing was done for my 2014 Christmas card. I wanted to recognize Joseph. I wanted to show a young man, proud to be a father and delighted in his son.

Joseph, son of David, what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. He will save his people from their sins.

I wanted to complement the earlier drawing I had done of Mary and baby Jesus:(http://sircolby.com/drawings/mary-and-baby-jesus/)

Trinity Sunday

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Religious — Colby @ 12:21 pm

A few years ago my pastor asked me to illustrate something for Trinity Sunday. The Father is represented by the Old Testament commandments, The Son is represented by the cross and the Spirit by a dove. I also did a color version just for the heck of it but it wasn’t used.

This drawing commemorating Easter was first posted in April 2009. I have been honored by several churches who have asked permission to use this drawing for their services. One church even used the drawing to make a very beautiful banner.
