It’s Saturday, and Palm Sunday is Coming!

Tomorrow will be a day that makes full use of the palm branch industry across the country. Many churches will have kids marching into big church with palm branches held high.

I love Palm Sunday because it is a time of celebration before the drama of Passion Week. We go from the high of Palm Sunday to the low of Good Friday, and back to the high of Easter Sunday. Life is that way. We have highs and lows. Sometimes there are in the course of a day. Take time to celebrate the high points in your life. And when the low points come, remember that things are cyclical. Eventually, a high point will come again. 

I drew this in the Adobe Illustrator Draw app. It was a quick sketch on my iPhone. 

Formless Glob

Today, I took a drawing right out of my sketchbook. I applied the color in Adobe Photoshop. It’s a sketch of a “globby” monster: The text reads, “A formless glob can do so much more than you realize. It can paly soccer if is willing to roll with the ball. It can eat most finger foods with our without fingers. It’s really a most versatile thing.”

Sketchbook: Curiosity in a Box

Sketch of kids in a classroom. It’s fun how kids are attracted to boxes. It always piques their curiosity. Even if it’s empty, kids will wonder what’s going on, especially when it wasn’t there before.

Sketch I did during a department meeting. Sometimes, it’s better to avoid drawing anyone in a meeting. Unfortunately, trouble brews if someone still believes I was drawing them in the form of a monster.
