April 6, 1830

Figured today’s a good day to release this.

April 6, 1830

The circles represent the six organizers present at the organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on April 6, 1830. (Others were present as well, though I’ve left them out for minimalism’s sake.)

Brief update: still alive, doing fine, just staying home with my wife and kids in the hope of helping stop the spread (and ideally not getting COVID-19 either — one of our kids has a heart condition which makes this scarier for us than it would otherwise be).

I haven’t really worked on any art lately (not in the right headspace for it lately), but I have gotten back into writing, and that’s going well. Hoping to have some new fiction to post before too long. And new art, too.

Stay home and stay healthy, y’all.

Tell Me the Stories of Jesus

Trying out a new riff on my circles-and-triangles style:

Tell Me the Stories of Jesus

This one originally wasn’t going to be a religious piece (it was going to be something about motherhood), but at the last minute it became very clear that Tell Me the Stories of Jesus was what it was supposed to be called.

Gethsemane

Gethsemane

The figure at center represents the Savior in the garden of Gethsemane, and the faint light along the right side of the painting represents the angel about to arrive.
