Life is worth living. It’s worth our love, our devotions, even our failures.
The journey has so far returned me to my youthful curiosity, encouraging me to pick up my pencil and create things that I love. More importantly, it led me straight into the arms of God.
I am not a religious, a minister, or a preacher. I do not have any formal background in sacred things. I read the bible. I pray. I go to mass. But somewhere, somehow, my heart turned back to artistry, my first love. I started drafting, creating, rambling.
There’s some wall art that I started. It’s a collection called ‘God in the sky,’ because that’s what I saw; that’s what spoke to me through those magnificent punches of light in the skies. They began as actual pictures of the sky taken from my phone on various days and time. I then made paintings, took photos, then scanned them to digitally prep them for print.
I wrote some things. The Sixth Star is a novel about a reformed mad scientist who tried to destroy a country illuminated by awesome light. The reason why I wrote this story was to explore the definition of wisdom. That exploration led me to the Holy Spirit, then to the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit. So I personified them in the book and called them the Seven Seers of Dawn. It’s interesting.
I’m working on a graphic novel about the nativity. It’s cool, modern, city. Stay tuned. It should come out some time this year.
My college background is in literature, but my artistry is my own. Email me at email@example.com .
I’m open to anything on this journey. Blessed to have you join me.
