Illustration Friday: Red

The Red Sea counts as "red," right? Well here is good, old Moses parting the Red Sea. Charlton Heston is nowhere to be seen.

This is a cover illustration I did. It is a coloring book called "My Bible Heroes," and it's available through Warner Press.

The book has a profile on different heroes in the Bible.


Pandora's Box

"Hmmm. I wonder if I should open this?"

Sometimes there aren't many choices are there? Sometimes, there are plenty of choices but we seem attracted to the bad ones. There's a little Pandora in all of us, isn't there?

Illustration Friday: Super Heroes

Boy to Pastor: "But why doesn't our church reach out to super heroes?"

This week's Illustration Friday theme reminded me of a cartoon I did some years back. As a boy, I wondered were those super heroes were in real life. I found out later many were closer than I thought. One of them lived right in my house and went by the alias, "Dad."

Complete the caption: Cheerleader

The Christian Humor Writers group requested a cartoon for writing aerobics this week. So feel free to complete the caption!

There's been a lot of team spirit in Indiana thanks to the big Indianapolis Colts' Play-offs this weekend. Will they make it to the Superbowl? Stay tuned!

Looking for love in January

In January, we look for love. We look for something to warm the cold. Success comes by February 14th.

That desert of time between Christmas and Valentine's day is a time when a lot of people do some searching. Luckily, I've already found love. But I remember those cold winter days. I'd shed a tear if it wouldn't freeze to my cheek.

Taking Tests

God gave Abraham quite a test! I'm glad the tests I experience are less extreme.

Illustration Friday: Buzz

The word, "Buzz," got me thinking about a project I recently illustrated. This cover is for a story on an audio cd. It tells the Christmas story from the perspective of "The Glory Bugs."

It's a cute story. You can see more at Omni-Seven Productions.

They will have a second story coming called "All Fired Up." This one will be about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace.

Jacob Hidden Picture

I did this illustration for Warner Press the other day. It's a hidden picture illustration on Genesis 28, Jacob's ladder. I do these illustrations for a children's bulletin book. It's available through WP's bulletin subscription service. So, can you find the five things different in the pictures?

Bad Cold

Boy to dad: “I’m glad you’re feeling better. I’d hate to replace you.”

I've been recovering from a nice, holiday cold. My kids have been nice, and sincere about my welfare. I imagined this morning what would happen if they were younger and had a more selfish motive. Good thing you can't just pick up a new dad from the Home Depot.
