He Is Risen

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Religious — Colby @ 9:26 am

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.

Pollen on the Mount

Inspired by my Pastor’s sermon. At least it proves I was listening.

On Eagles Wings

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Religious — Colby @ 11:10 am

I was asked to illustrate a couple of Bible verses. John 8:32 being one of them.

32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Combined with that is a reference to Isaiah 40:31.

31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Both verses from the New International Version (NIV).

I depicted someone not only part of the earth but bound to it and being freed. I’m not sure why I chose a dancer. Seemed like a good idea. Maybe it had something to do with “grace.” You are free to make your own interpretations.

World Atlas

Filed under: CARTOONS,History,Religious,Science, Health, Weather — Colby @ 11:42 am

We have maps of just about every era of world history. I realized there was one missing.

This may surprise you but it really didn’t take me long to do this.

Princess Zombie Santa

Filed under: CARTOONS,Fantasy,Religious — Colby @ 12:05 pm

While visiting a couple of my grandkids for Christmas they made requests for drawings. Since it was Christmas they both wanted Santa cartoons. One wanted Santa wearing a tutu. The other wanted a zombie Santa. One grandkid is a 5 year old girl; the other, an 8 year old boy. I’ll let you figure out who asked for what.

Mary and Baby Jesus

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits,Religious — Colby @ 10:14 pm

I made this drawing for my Christmas card. I wanted Mary to appear young; I’m told she was. I wanted the image to have a somewhat contemporary, less traditional look but still have the feel of the historical setting. You’ll have to judge whether or not I was successful.

To my friends who are not Christian or are not religious, let this be an image representing love and the hope for the future.

A Child Is Born

Filed under: CARTOONS,DRAWINGS,Religious — Colby @ 12:47 am

This is the last Christmas card in the set and is most people’s favorite; probably because they’ve all witnessed the humorous chaos of trying to put on a youth Christmas program. Outside on the top; inside on the bottom.

I hope you have enjoyed this tour of Christmas cards. Regardless of your faiths and beliefs, I wish this Christmas Day brings you joy. And again, thanks to David Hopson and his artistic skills for putting these together.

And Lo, The Star

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Religious — Colby @ 12:48 am

The structure is the outside of my church. Do you recognize the bells from a previous card? Beside our church is a pathway enveloped by rows of live oak trees. We like to call that “Oak Alley.” I represented that within the silhouette of the sanctuary, then added the nativity scene. David Hopson added the star.
