How I turn a sketch into a pattern
Some mice I sketched on Procreate
I’ve an idea I’ve been thinking about and playing with for some time, which I think can become something useful.
My biggest problem though is how to explain what’s in my mind… but here goes.
A few little things have happened recently that have brought back an old gripe of mine. That old feeling that as a Christian artist, one of the hardest hurdles is finding a sense of belonging in the church.
There’s a whole community of artists out there who spend a vast amount of time dwelling on their art supplies and it’s on the levels of paranoid US preppers.
Can you use a drawing of a female figure in Christian faith?
I believe if I can create an art space where everyone is accepted then lives can begin to change.
If I can show people who feel worthless, their value, I can begin to turn the tide of lives wasted.
If I can begin to change a few lives, we can change the world.
After the band have played the last note, the choir have sat down, the sermon done, the Amen said… the prayer shawl continues on and travels with the person in need.
I am barred from taking an active part in my church not because I won’t wear a uniform, but because I can’t afford to. I am banned from being a useful member of my church because I am poor.
These are the miracles that bring a man back on his feet, the opportunities that can only be seen by visionaries.
