Dec 26 daily365 sketch

I was thinking about being free. And so I wrote it. I like the ‘f’. Not sure about the rest. But that’s the point of this, right? To just draw something everyday. Here’s #1!

Z-axis poster.

I was asked to speak at this youth retreat this upcoming weekend. I’m really excited about it. It’s about breaking free from a 2-dimensional faith, and living life in an active relationship with God through the Holy Spirit.

I was also asked to design the poster and logo for it. I had all of these ideas from what we had first talked about… and none of them made it into that first poster.

Honestly, the first poster I did was pretty lame. I tried this whole birds flying free thing, but it didn’t have the effect I was imagining.

Here is what I came up with:

I think this one works much better. And is overall a far better design.

Here are some sketches from the past. Continue reading
