  10. Hope that sword has been sharpened recently... it's gonna take little David a while to saw through that neck! Cool illustration style... great stuff as always!

  11. Another great illustration filled with meaning and it fits into your bible blog series as well. I love this color scheme. The blues and ochres and browns work so well. And I think that little guy is going to win the day with his bravery.

  12. Hooray for David! He was one of the bravest people in history. Great idea for the theme Jack and so well done as usual. I too love your touches of the shadow and the glint on the sword.

  22. LOVE your rendition of David and Goliath...your character work is wonderfully witty and whimsical! Thanks for making the button code(!)...for some reason though, it won't let me copy the code...I can't highlight it at all. Just wanted you to know... I'm sure I can just type it in by looking at it and make it work that way. I'm looking forward to sharing Mr. Biblehead with everyone! You're doing a wonderful job with the stories...truly wonderful...

    Take care, and keep up the good work!

    Blesings,

  30. Oh, most definitely. I can hear David saying, "Hey, what's that over there? Look!"

    Fantastic as ever, Jack!

  31. I love it! David is for certain one of the bravest examples I know for giving me courage!! David is also one of my very favorite to read about in the Bible. I love the Psalms and his realness with his ups and downs and also his courage.
