WHAT'S GOING ON

fire1

LOTS OF WONDERFUL THINGS HAVE BEEN GOING ON THE PAST FEW MONTHS! HERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT ARE ON MY PLATE:

1. I WAS RECENTLY ASKED TO BE A PART OF ILLUSTRATING A CHILDRENS BOOK THAT DEALS WITH ABUSE AND TRAUMA. ALTHOUGH IT HAS BEEN SLOW MOVING, I FEEL THAT THE DIALOG BETWEEN THE CHARACTER AND GOD CAN BRING HEALING TO OTHERS.

2. I AM WORKING ON A BODY OF WORK THAT CONSISTS OF "OUR NEIGHBORS". I WANT TO BRIDGE THE GAP OF THE RICH AND POOR IN MY COMMUNITY AND SHARE PEOPLES STORIES.

3. MY CLOSE FRIEND LOWELL JUST RECIEVED A GRANT FOR WOOD SUPPLIES AT HIS MEN'S TRANSITIONAL HOUSE AND I PLAN ON BUILDING HIGH END FURNITURE WITH OTHER MEN THIS SPRING AND SUMMER.

4. IN A COUPLE WEEKENDS I AM HEADED BACK TO A STUDENT RETREAT LEAD BY NEW HEIGHTS AND BRING SOME LIVE PAINTING TO WORSHIP. I REALLY WANT TO PUSH MORE TOWARDS THIS AS I GROW AS AN ARTIST AND HUMAN BEING. IT IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW CHRIST THROUGH THIS PLATFORM.

5. JACK FROM NEW TRIBES IS ALLOWING ME TO ASSIST WHAT HE IS GOING TO BE DOING WITH HIS FAMILY IN PAPUEA NEW GUINEA. HOPEFULLY I CAN SHARE SOME STORIES SO PEOPLE HERE BACK IN THE STATES CAN KNOW WHO THEY ARE REACHING.

6. MY DAY JOB AS A GRAPHIC DESIGNER HAS BEEN GREAT. THE PEOPLE I WORK WITH AT B-UNLIMITED ARE A BLESSING TO ME AND I HAVE BUILT SOME WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIPS. GOING INTO A GRAPHIC DESIGN FIELD THAT I HAD NO TRAINING IN BEFORE HAS REALLY OPENED UP MY EYES.

7. I REALLY CAN'T WAIT UNTIL ART IN THE PARK STARTS UP AGAIN...

8. THAT IS ALL FOR NOW! THANKS FOR READING.
