Illustrations for Life With Objects

Bit late getting this up, but I had the pleasure of creating a series of small illustrations to accompany Season One of Life With Objects.

And while I’ve got you thinking about objects, I should mention that these were drawn with a piece of bamboo dipped in ink.

Time Well Spent

For over a year, I’ve been working with a church in Pennsylvania to develop icons to represent the different aspects of their worship and work. Distilling the vision of an entire congregation into a set of simple symbols proved no easy task, and we went through many rounds of revisions. These four are my personal favorites.

My hope is that the new icons will be accessible, flexible and stand the test of time — but moreover, I hope that by going through this process, the leaders of the church have found a common language for some of the intangible aspects of ministry that are often difficult to put into words.
