An illustration of Isaiah 6 for the Old and New Project, a biblical illustration initiative by Jim LePage and Troy Deshano.
I’ve been an atheist since childhood, so I was at first bewildered when they asked me to participate – but in exploring their site, I learned that the project welcomes and in fact encourages artists from all spiritual perspectives, including people like me who are are about as spiritual as a bag of hammers.
I’ve been perennially fascinated by the products of Christianity – the crazy saints, the obsessive work of Hieronymous Bosch, Bernini’s St. Teresa, Dante’s Divine Comedy, William Blake’s illustrations of Dante’s Divine Comedy, weird icons, everything discussed in The Name of the Rose, odd relics, strange rituals, the cathedrals… etc.
This particular moment from Isaiah has been illustrated by tons of people, but I was really smitten with this amazing naive drawing by Benjamin Roden, who founded the Branch Davidian Seventh-day Adventist Association (?). I learned a lot researching this project, and if you like the piece you can buy a print – proceeds go to charity.
Thanks to Jim and Troy!

TRYING SOMETHING DIFFERENT!
I’ve been seeing my pal Patches belt out these awesome speedpaints with the lasso-tool and I had to give it a try. It’s really fun! A bit too clean than my usual stuff but hey. 
I used my own photography for reference when drawing/painting this~

To celebrate the 38th anniversary of the liberation of Da Nang, the government of Vietnam has constructed the world’s largest dragon-shaped bridge over the Han River. Not only is it the steel bridge the largest of its type in the world, but it is covered in over 2,500 LED lights - and it breathes fire!

holy shit.
