OH YEAH, there was this project I was working on...

...which I keep forgetting to write about! Silly!

I did the illustrations for a children’s ebook (for the iPad) about the life of Jesus, told through Mary’s eyes:

The project was a collaborative piece that involved several people from church who did the narrating, writing, programming, promoting, etc., and was released in time for Easter. I was thrilled to be a part of it- what a challenge to portray something of such importance, so often horribly cutesified or cartoonified in children’s books, in a simple, straightforward yet imaginative and engaging manner. And it was a challenge to figure out how to incorporate my style- how to use my strengths to make the message stand out. I am hoping that the intricate doodly style will help convey the mystery and beauty God’s sovereignty and of what Jesus did on the cross!
