A quick update, I realize I'm sharing some personal
life matters, but there's a reason for it, so I hope you won't mind...
I've decided to resign my job as an assistant teacher.. even though
I just began. The reason is... with this new job, there's no time
left to work on art.. and I can't see myself stuck in a job just out of
necessity, when I haven't even given art a chance...

Hearing the advice of a previous illustration teacher, and feeling like life
grew a little too dark without art, I've decided to quit the job, and take
the leap into freelance. This is very frightening.. I won't lie. But I can't
let fear control me, if this is in God's plans, then He will be faithful and provide.

So I hope to share more art with you guys soon. I don't want this to be a one-sided thing,
I hope that the messages can be a gift to the viewer... There's so much more to share,
but there just hasn't been time to finish a lot of things. But, now there will be. It will be a full-time endeavor.
Thank you guys for reading, hope you can gather something beneficial from this.

Goals in the near future:
  • Setting up a professional printer and laminator, and selling prints and posters! : D
  • Opening up commissions! They're a little full right now.. There will be an explanation of commissions and
    examples too, when the time comes.

I imagine art as being like the donkey that carried Christ into Jerusalem.
The donkey was nothing out of the ordinary. It was not the donkey that
was important - but the Person it carried was. This Man is out of the ordinary:
He is a mysterious personage whose words and deeds have altered the course
of history. My goal is to share this Man- Jesus, through art.

I just completed my bachelor's degree in fine art, and will now have more time
to share new projects. I'm a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, and my hope is
that the work I post here will be a catalyst for other young people to give
their best and their all to God, Who is worthy of it.

ForestHymn, you're an SDA, right? Maybe not commissions or secular art, but do you think making a Christian themed art piece is considered work on le Sabbath? :1

A good question-
this helped solve it for me:

It's from The Desire of Ages: "...the priests in
the temple performed greater labor on the Sabbath than
upon other days.
The same labor in secular business would
be sinful; but the work of the priests was in the service of God.
They were performing those rites that pointed to the redeeming
power of Christ, and their labor was in harmony with the object of
the Sabbath.
"


and this really nailed it for me: "The object of God's work in this
world is the redemption of man; therefore that which is necessary
to be done on the Sabbath in the accomplishment of this work is
in accord with the Sabbath law."
(DA pg. 285)

I guess we could call it work, but it would be a work for Christ.
I don't see why it would be wrong-
Here on Mark 3:4, Jesus said: "Is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath day, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill?"
(and then He healed a man's hand)

So it seems pretty clear... it's Ok to "do good" on the Sabbath. To "work" for others,
like He did. Making Christian-themed art.. seems like a natural way to spend it, after spending
some time with Him.. (as opposed to sleeping!) :D

It's funny that you asked this! Just now.. I'm making a drawing.. felt inspired to make it.. and
it felt like it "made itself"... I'm convinced God uses the Sabbath time to impart inspiration...
It almost gives me shivers.. God draws near.. and that He would choose to give us humans a little
bit of inspiration.. wow! What an opportunity!

What are your thoughts on it?
