As I illustrated these, my mind took me back to a bible verse in Matthew Chapter 4, when Jesus spoke to the men who would become his apostles, saying, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
I also illustrated an avatar of my sister with the thought that it would be nice if there was more open-sourcing of avatars and characters of multiple ethnicities (e.g. Pablo Stanley’s Humaaans project, but even more diversified). It would long term serve the greater good– in company efficiency and racial equity.
At the end of February, I put to image some verses I’ve leaned on during periods of uncertainty, worry, and when I needed to remind myself what I believed in. Tools used were my handy MX Ergo mouse and Adobe Illustrator.
I call these kinds of my illustrations Adult Bedtime Stories, as they are (picture books) children’s books made for adults like me.
The illustrations that follow span scripture from Matthew Chapter 6, from verses 25 to 33 in English and French.
I hope they are useful and bring comfort to anyone who stumbles on them:
