Daniel and the king's dreams




This is a video clip to POD's 'Sleeping Awake'. Based on Daniel chapters 1-6. I liked the idea of the song, but felt it had drifted from it's original meaning after it featured in the Matrix film. I tried to animate what I felt the band intended when they wrote/ performed it.

BANG!




The audio is part of a Christian/ atheist debate hosted by St Barnabas, Broadway, in Sydney.The argument goes that there must have been something uncreated to start the universe, which had a beginning. How can something come from nothing? This doesn't tell us much about God (nothing here about the Trinity, forgiveness, etc), but it’s a start. References Genesis 1:1-3.
Thanks to Luke Glanville for the (brief) track and to William Lane Craig for lending his voice. Made in Adobe Flash.

Memory Game

For a Sunday School game, I made these pictures to illustrate different verses in the Gospels. They were made into a set of memory cards with the corresponding verse as the matching pair. I've listed what I think are the matching verses in the comments section below.

The labourers in the yard

Another piece of work featuring an old crone. I used a bit more artistic licence on this one, transferring the scenario in the parable from a vineyard owner to an old lady who needs her yard fixed up. Jesus' point in the parable is that God's love isn't fair, it's outrageously indiscriminate. Based on Matthew 20.





On an autobiographical note, I remember as a kid being roped into other peoples schemes and set to work without really wanting to be there. I wonder if kids today have to put up with that!

The Persistent Widow



A modern re-telling of Jesus' parable of the poor widow and the heartless judge. If she could pester this guy enough and get what she was after, isn't a caring God going to answer much more quickly than that! Narration: Luke 18:1-8.

Birth of Jesus

My wife wanted some pictures to put on her blog for Christmas 2011. The idea was that parents could do Advent-calendar-style activities with their kids, and colouring in my pictures was one of the activities. Well I eventually decided to colour them myself.






Random pictures

A bunch of pictures people have asked for: Abraham, the guy from Jesus' colourful harangue (swallowing a camel and straining the gnat), and some worried livestock for a Bible study booklet on Leviticus. And so on.







Exodus

A friend asked if I could make a series of pictures for a Powerpoint presentation he was going to show at youth group. He was basically telling the story of the exodus. I had some time on my hands so this is what I came up with:










Get Yerrone!

Yerrone being Strine for 'your own'. A comic I made for the short-lived Pulp Crucifixion series.
