Shadowness - emberblue http://shadowness.com I am a graphic designer in Southern California. I have a passion for Jesus, and a passion for art, both digital and traditional. God gave me my tale... en Candy Land Jesus http://shadowness.com/emberblue/candy-land-jesus <a href="http://shadowness.com/emberblue/candy-land-jesus"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item8/216865/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />This is a t-shirt design for a team that is running in an upcoming Relay for Life race to support lung cancer awareness. I guess the theme for this race is candy land. (That brought back some happy memories from my childhood) This particular group is from a church and they wanted the graphic to say "Jesus is the sweetest name we know!". The font used is "Arista". All the other images I drew myself in Illustrator.

Personally I think it is a great concept for young people to live by. Fonts used: "Varsity" and "Aovel Cool" Wed, 11 Apr 2012 17:44:41 -0400 Easter 2012 http://shadowness.com/emberblue/easter-2012 <a href="http://shadowness.com/emberblue/easter-2012"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item7/201087/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Easter artwork for a Christian church in Southern California. This was heavily influenced by the art of Ty Mattson (who was influenced by Saul Bass). Everything except for the text is original and drawn by myself. The idea was to represent in an iconic way the whole story of Jesus' death and resurrection. Happy Resurrection Sunday!!!

Created in Illustrator CS4. Trying to get better at typography. The Bible holds the answers to life’s greatest questions. Your view of the Bible is the most important thing about you, as it determines your relationship to God. The Bible is God’s Word written, in essence God’s divine autobiography. The entire book is a revelation of God – from God, centered on Jesus Christ, inspired by the Holy Spirit. God is revealing Himself to us through His Word.

Listen to some of Wes' experiences in the front line of battle in the Sudan and I guarantee you will change your mind. :) Lion stock image: http://www.shutterstock.com/pic.mhtml?id=18138142 Tue, 07 Feb 2012 13:01:28 -0500 AmazingGracePoster http://shadowness.com/emberblue/amazinggraceposter-2 <a href="http://shadowness.com/emberblue/amazinggraceposter-2"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item7/189280/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />This is my first shot at typography. The text "Amazing Grace" was done by "hand" using Adobe Illustrator. The rest of the design was done in Photoshop. This is an artwork concept for an Easter service for a Christian church. It is by God's grace that we have forgiveness of our sins by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This image has been stolen so many times that I'm tired of it and decided to put a ridiculous water mark on it.*** Jesus Culture Jesus came to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth. He came to teach us the culture of Heaven and to instill that in our hearts as we live on this planet. For most of us, the thought of a Kingdom is kind of strange. We experience democracy, dictatorship, socialism, etc. A perfect King owns everything and rules over his kingdom in such a way that his people are protected and provided for. Life on this earth will always have problems and bad things are guaranteed to happen because people are inherently evil and we live in a fallen world. Don't expect God to right every wrong in this life. Heaven is where He will do that. Also, Jesus was not religious. What! Yes, Jesus was not religious and He did not come to bring religion. At least, not in the sense of practicing rituals that were created by people. Jesus rejected the religious traditions that men came up with. He brought a relationship with God. God is a loving relational being who is not impressed with you keeping the traditions of your religion. He simply wants a relationship with you. Don't put God in a box. Yes, we have the Bible as God's words to us for life and salvation and we must follow it, but don't condemn other people on issues that don't really matter because they have a different view than you. Jesus prayed: "Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" And that is the gist of it. Jesus came to teach us and set the example, to provide a way into His kingdom, to bring the kingdom of heaven to us so that we can do His will on earth as it is done in heaven. Thanks for viewing. :heart Sorry for the large watermark. I have had problems in the past with theft on this image, and I want to protect my client's rights to this artwork. ***Not to be confused with the "Jesus Culture" movement or the band.*** Wed, 01 Feb 2012 12:43:39 -0500
