Super Cat

Some more after work sketching for fun. I used to draw more of these types sketches for my wife when we were dating. It's sort of my way of saying, I'm thinking about you and I love you.

Following Jesus

"Following Jesus never ends with "what's in it for me?"

I heard this quote was from a sermon by Andy Stanly a couple of weeks ago. For me, coming back to faith was about "what's in it for me." I was in a rough place in life and needed help. After recommitting my life to God things began to get better. My attitude, health, relationships, etc. Life hasn't gotten easier but it has gotten much better.

I went from being a consumer to being an advocate.

Paint Your Little Village

"Paint your little village and you paint the world."

I love this quote because it feels so empowering to know that we don't have to buy a plane ticket and travel to another country to do a mission trip to help change the world. We can do it right here! At home, work, the grocery store, etc. A smile to a stranger, a kind word to the cashier, a phone call to an old friend.

We are all connected.

Inspirational Chalkboard Art

"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
- Psalm 118:24

Lately I've been learning a lot about hand drawn fonts, typography and layout. It has been a fun challenge and I like how it adds another skill set to my "artistic tool belt." I feel grateful to be able to make art that coincides with my beliefs.

Thank you Erin for the free chalkboard background!
