Illustration Friday: Sprout

This week’s theme for Illustration Friday is “Sprout.” Yesterday, I heard Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow so we’ll have an early spring.

Can I believe Phil? As I’m writing this it’s snowing and sixteen degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill of 0. Did I mention it’s snowing?

I’m ready for this little guy to sprout. It’s a plus if he doesn’t see his shadow.


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

Cartoon of a boy and a pastor.
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.”

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!
