Another unit of ‘Friendship’ illustrations for the Christian Reformed Church, an ongoing curriculum project (this current batch since 2002). I’ve chosen a sampling of illustrations from this group to post here by way of example.
I remember the ‘apostles’ being a particular logistical headache throughout the project. They needed to be readily recognizable throughout the entire series, so were given a certain ‘outfit’ and ‘hairstyle’. Each time an apostle needed to make an appearance, I had to check back to my ‘master list’ to make sure he was drawn correctly. The worst ones were the ‘apostle crowds’ like the last supper illustration above.
Frequently there would be a lot of duplication, both for teacher’s guides, and for activity sheets related to the materials. Blank scenes like above would be populated by character cutout sheets (like below).
