Good Book

It's a holy time of year, I guess.

above: Luke 2:7, illustrated by Raymond C. Raeke III

Celebrate by drawing a picture for the book that launched a million ships!

For the past few years Patrick and Kate Hambrecht have been curating an open source art project to illustrate the Bible verse by verse. To date it's about 9% finished.

Regardless of your feelings about art, or the Bible, or Patrick and Kate it's an interesting endeavor which utilizes technology and a powerful cultural icon to build a common project. The contributors are professionals (Tony Millionaire, Danny Hellman, Dame Darcy, et al.) and horrible, rank amateurs (me).

As you're drowning your sorrows in eggnog and hidden flasks of Kentucky bourbon this holiday season, pull out a Sharpie and a King James and draw up some Bible verses!

Proverbs 3:25 by Marc Crisafulli

You don't even need to know how to draw:

Zephaniah 1:2 "I will utterly consume all things from the land, saith the lord."
