Artist Outreach Ministry

One of the reasons I like our church is because it has an ARTIST OUTREACH MINISTRY. Included in each weeks bulletin is a piece of artist sketch paper (labeled “notes” for some odd reason) and a complimentary drawing pen! Not every church would make this sort of effort to reach out to the artistic community, but ours does! …well …at least I THINK it’s an Artist Outreach Ministry.

Cowboys And Aliens

A few weeks ago, I ran across a replay of the Cowboys And Aliens movie on TV. (Spoiler Alert: the movie contains cowboys, indians and ALIENS). In the opening scene, a really interesting looking cowboy with a stove pipe hat rides into the story. Thinking he was a really unique character, I quickly sketched him and later that weekend I scratched some color onto my drawing.

Slightly Steampunked

I am the proud owner of an old wooden chair that belonged to my Grandma and Grandpa Grantham. It came from the corner of their old smoke house where it sat dilapidated, covered in dirt, boxes and mud-dobber nests. I, of course, loved it the moment I saw it. It’s seat cover was a ratty, red leather looking canvas material. A few years ago, I  ripped off that old red seat cover and refurbished the chair… but I kept the seat cover hoping someday to find a use for it. Well, this weekend I found a use for it… it became the new covering for the pick guard and tuning head on this guitar.

My 2013 Sketchbook

It’s March of 2014, so I guess it’s time to get my 2013 Sketchbook posted. This one doesn’t have the same production values as my other sketchbook videos… mainly because I shot it this afternoon with a phone in one hand and turning pages with the other… and I kinda ran out of pages so I just started throwing stuff on top of the sketchbook… and I only did one take… but I did spend a whopping 5 minutes shooting it and another half an hour trying to figure out how the new iMovie interface works, so it’s got all that going for it. I hope you enjoy this little movie and appreciate all the minutes and minutes of thought and hard work that went into the making of this possible academy award winning film.

The Luke Project Continues

For everyone that had me one n done in their office pools… you lose! I just posted picture number TWO.

As many of you know, I am attempting to illustrate the entire Biblical Book Of Luke… IN MY SPARE TIME. I started at chapter one verse one and am working my way to the end of the book. I will post one new image each Monday with the text that goes with it. I will continue to post the Luke pictures both here AND on the Luke page, but eventually only The Gospel Of Luke page will have these pictures… so…

The Gospel Of Luke Project

I’m starting a new online project which is surely doomed to fail. I’m going to attempt to illustrate the entire Biblical Book Of Luke… IN MY SPARE TIME. I will start at chapter one verse one and work my way to the end of the book. I will post one new image each week with the text that goes with it. We can all read the Book Of Luke together… or we can all watch Dennis experience a colossal epic fail around Chapter Three… either way, it’s a WIN, WIN!
