Just a quick post to say that for those of you who have signed up to the Jonah Illustration Project the emails went out today. If you were expecting to receive an email and haven’t then please get in touch.
We are really excited about this project, so stay tuned for all the latest info!
We have had a great response to our initial call for artists to sign up to the Jonah Illustration Project, so thank you to everyone who has signed up already.
We have got a great mix of artists so far, but still have room for more, so we are going to leave the sign up page open for another week.
Whatever kind of art you do, I encourage you to sign up, this project is all about your artistic interpretation of the text, there are no right or wrong answers! This is going to be a great project to be a part of, and another step towards better exposure for Christian artists.
Please take the time to sign up on our sign up page.
Note: I’m SO sorry for the technical errors we have had today with the links, everything should be running smoothly now, and to our RSS subscribers sorry if you have received multiple notifications of this.
Finally it’s here! The first Artists for Christ online community project, and as a team we are SO excited!
The idea is that we are going to get together artists from all over the world, and together we are going to illustrate the book of Jonah. This is going to be a very exciting project to be a part of, as when it all comes together Artists for Christ are going to produce and publish it as a book for the world to see! We truly believe that this project is going to be a great opportunity for coming together as a community, getting into the word, worshipping God, networking with other creatives all over the world, and bringing more exposure to Christian artists.
We would love for you to be part of it, and for you to ask your friends and people that you know to do the same.
So for more information and to sign up please visit the project page.
For those of you who want to read some art history with a christian perspective, read ‘Modern Art and the Death of a Culture’ by H.R Rookmaaker. It’s a pretty well known book and has been around for a while but I only found it a few months ago. I’ve been slow getting through it but it’s a great book for understanding the place Christian art is at currently, and how we’ve got here.
As the blurb on the back says…
‘… Dr. Rookmaaker builds up a message for our times which may be devastating, but is also profoundly helpful and positive. He sees above all the tremendous potential and relevance of Christian attitudes, to man, to society, to freedom, to the whole of reality, as the basis for a way ahead in the future.’
