Gift Art for a Friend

I got this image for a friend while I was praying Friday night at my churches bi-monthly night watch.

The image I got was of comfort, safety and "warm fuzzy squishyness" in the arms of Jesus.

I depict Jesus more how I feel his is in the moment not by his stereotypical image. Often more like how he would be walking about today.

I realize for these drawings I often get the image of hugging. I think that it is because hugging is such a close and safe expression of intimacy.

Drawing Practice 3

Continuing to build my visual vocabulary by drawing from images. I've been drawing at a coffee shop at lunch. Working on a flat TV Show I miss real drawing. >_<

 Practicing Vests and silhouettes. 
Old Motorcycles are awesome.
Trying to draw again the image from before.
More Steampunk.
This is more from my own head.
The top stuff is from my head the lower images are roughly from images.

The following is from my smaller Sketchbook and many of the images predate the above.
 I drew this the day I went to serve Jury Duty (they ended up not needing me.) I feel I did well capturing the scale of the trees to the guy though in actuality the trees were even bigger.
 Just people at church.
 My first attempt at drawing my cat in a new way.
 Tried again.
 This one I was losser and I like this one the best.
 A speaker at church.
 More doodles of the speaker.
 More randomness.
Actually roughing out a character from a short story I wrote.

Heartbeat Compass

This is a compass I made showing visually the Chinese Zodiac with it's dates and times.

This is a rough outline of the dates. For those whose birthday is in January or February should check here because the Chinese year is different than the western year. Also the month dates are rough for the first two days and last two days because they shift slightly from year to year.

Gift Art for Women in Greece

These are personal drawings that I created to send to women in Greece who where saved from human trafficking by Campaign 21. These works are intentional prophetic art in which I listened to Gods heart for these women and created images to encourage them and touch their hearts with Gods love.

 With this one I got a strong image of security and safety to mourn in the safety of the fathers arms.

This one started with a strong image of rising out of the decaying filth of death. The woman is a princess and a bride. She is given wings to rise above her circumstances and rain washes away that pain.
With this one I was reminded of an image God gave me in my healing. One of being safe in the loving arms of Jesus as the storm is calmed and the waves abated.

God reminded me of another image he gave me. I met Jesus in a field of green under a blue sky. I was free to be a girl again.
