early version artwork

ok - our series on the resurrection is called "dying for a fix." i had an artist lined up to do our artwork, but then he flaked out on me. in between writing the atlas, i've been fiddling with the artwork, trying to get an appropriate look and feel.

which is hard.

because the facts of the crucifixion are brutal, while the truths of the resurrection are powerful.

brutal + powerful.

those are the words this artwork has to evoke in order to be faithful to the Gospel.

however, brutal + powerful are not good church-y words. they're not good family words.

of course, i don't typically shy away from controversy; but i don't really want to bludgeon people with my lack of sensitivity either.

brutal + powerful.

i'll show you something tomorrow.
