Grow Summer 2012

Graphics and video for rezlife’s Grow Summer 2012. This is one of the first projects that I was actually able to work on post-transplant, so it was a little slow going, but I managed to get it pulled together. This year rezlife student ministries will be doing all kinds of missions work- in the Kansas…

After Eden

This is another side project that I worked on over the summer and never got around to posting. The idea behind this was to show the brokenness of relationships that characterizes the human condition after the Fall. I liked the idea of taking an image of a couple and splitting it in two, yet still…

Rhetorical Probability

I always find it amusing when I am sitting in a doctor’s office during the middle of the day how the only thing on the TV is a show involving some manner of litigation. I don’t know if Judge Judy is still doing her thing, but there always seems to be some ridiculous sort of…

Almost Alive

Back in the summer of 2011 I started creating some freelance artwork for bulletin covers, postcards, etc. For whatever reason I never got around to actually posting them here, and was only recently reminded about doing so. This particular installment is a concept I developed called Almost Alive. I had the idea of a branch…

Toward the Beautiful

I wrote a guest article for CreationSwap entitled Toward the Beautiful on the metaphysical underpinnings of beauty and how that relates to the role of an artist in the work of creating art. Check it out here.

The Light That Never Went Out

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the phrase The Dark Ages? Hordes of barbarians descending from the mountainside, laying waste to an enlightened and ordered society, leaving only violence and lawlessness in their wake? The utter disintegration of art, learning, science and culture for nearly 400 years? Unrelenting…

Oh, To Be Awake!

Oh, the pains to come awake; to part from the fancies of dreams, and the pleasures of rest; only to climb out of evening’s darkness. Oh, the burn of the sun and its rays, Only first light, so dim compared to midday, yet still too bright for tired eyes, How I wish to stay and…

Jesus Hates Religion!

Every once in awhile one stumbles across a video that displays such a lack of critical thinking that it’s hardly worth even bothering to dignify it with a response. However, sometimes it is equally entertaining to engage in what might amount to a rather satisfying fisk of the aforementioned video, if not for the reader…

My Empire for a Pony!

It is a little known fact that the tide of the Peloponnesian War was turned by ponies. Ok, that is perhaps a bit of an overstatement, but as the Athenians would discover in their utterly disastrous invasion of Sicily, 1200 ponies would bring an invasion force of 45,000 to its ruin. The war with the…

Made Perfect

Through the years I have been perplexed by a great many passages in the Scriptures, but perhaps none so more than Hebrews 5:5-10. It had always struck me as one that seemingly flies in the face of a lot of theological commitments about who Jesus is, at least on the surface of things. In the…

300 (Or, Wearing a Breastplate Keeps You From Being Stabbed.)

As I have been reading through Victor Davis Hanson’s phenomenal work A War Like No Other: How the Athenians and Spartans Fought the Peloponnesian War, I have been thinking back on the cultural connotations associated with Spartans and warfare in general. Perhaps none is more prominent in recent popular culture than the movie 300, which…

Just Make Sure It Will Burn

Words can make things seem far more dramatic than they actually are. For example, what do you think of when you read the following: Ravaging and pillaging the countryside. Words like these call up images of massive destruction, of colossal armies leaving nothing but unfettered and unfeeling havoc and pestilence in their wake, a nearly…
