(continued from ‘bible posters part three’)
I started getting into a groove near the end of the series, and they started looking a bit more interesting. I started populating some of them a bit more heavily, which made a bit more work, but also helped keep things interesting, and less tedious.
This one above and the one below were the most heavily populated illustrations in the bunch, and I managed to hide myself in among the crowd in the ‘loaves and fishes’ illustration above (wearing a red and blue striped tunic). The hardest part about the ‘palm sunday’ illustration was in drawing all the palm fronds (which I eventually cheated at and did a lot of copy and pasting).

In February (and probably a few months prior), I took part in illustrating several children’s stories for local publisher, Christian Schools International (they were associated with Christian Home & School, a magazine I had been working for during the past year). There were four volumes, if I remember correctly, and my art graced the cover of one of them (pictured to the left). Several stories in each volume featured illustrations by me, but I was only one of many illustrators hired to fill the pages of this book. I’ve since misplaced all the artwork for these (if they were ever returned, I don’t remember), and I used to have copies of the books, but I seem to have mislaid them as well. ADDENDUM 2018: I’ve managed to track down copies of two of the volumes that I appear in (the one pictured above and another), and am still on the hunt for the other two copies.
Also, over January and February I gained a few new clients; Home Office Computing and Writer’s Digest.
