A new drawing

I haven’t drawn as much during the last two months because my new book has consumed all my creative juices, but I did sit down and draw a picture of Jesus this evening. Lately, I’ve felt the need to draw him.

My new novel is about halfway finished, I think. If everything runs on schedule, I think I will complete it by the end of September. I hope so, anyway. I feel really good about it. I think it’s a great story. I’m eager to publish this thing and let it fly out into the world.

I hope you have a great week. Thanks for reading.

  3. Great drawing, Matthew! I enjoy seeing different illustrator’s interpretations of Jesus. I can really see his kindness in your drawing. Have you drawn him before?

Matthew, this drawing touched my heart very much. I once (and only once) drew my own rendition of the Last Supper. It was quite a challenge, I painted it with acrylics and my Aunt and Uncle were given it as a gift, while I was in my twenties. My need to make the people of the proper ethnic heritage was my biggest challenge, Matthew…
