Thanks for your interest in "The Process". Much more to come...
Koine just released their single, "Sacrifice With Shouts of Joy (A Meditative On Psalm 27)" and my artwork accompanies this song! Get it on iTunes. This is their awesome new song developed especially for the 2014 WELS Youth Rally. (Check out their lyric video below)
For those who want to explore...here's a special treat! I'm re-posting a link to a prezi presentation that uses the same artwork. Fly through the artwork to discover Biblical foundations for artists, some current WELS/ELS artists, and a review of my body of work. The making of the artwork for "Sacrifice with Shouts of Joy" is included!

Thanks to St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church and The Lutheran Ceili Orchestra
for a great Art-A-Whirl weekend! Click here to check out the coverage from KSTP News!
If you missed us this year, mark your calendar for next May...
My weekend is booked. I'll be at St. John in Northeast Minneapolis participating in the "Art-A-Whirl festivities. I'll have original Christian artwork for sale and perform some sand animation with Joey Shumann of the Lutheran Ceili Orchestra.
Presented by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA), Art-A-Whirl is the largest open studio tour in the country. It’s a great opportunity to tour private artist studios and galleries, connect with the artists, and purchase original artwork.

Where is St. John's?

I'm excited to perform with the multi-talented Joey Shumann at St. John's this weekend. Learn more about Joey and the Lutheran Ceili Orchestra at www.joeyschumann.com. An excerpt:
The Lutheran Ceili Orchestra is a group of accomplished Celtic Christian musicians from Wisconsin that have travelled the country playing their unique blend of hymns and traditional Irish music. Their "Celtic Service" series combines the verses, prayers, and legends of the ancient Celtic Christians with traditional music and hymns from Ireland and the British Isles played on authentic instruments including the Uilleann bagpipes, tinwhistle, fiddle, harp, bodhran, and more. The group is led by Joey Schumann, who is an annual featured Celtic musician at Carnegie Hall in New York City and has recorded and toured with American composer Tim Janis.
A bit about Joey:
"Joseph (Joey) grew up in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and is excited to return to the area. His family has roots in Appleton and grandmother had a long and happy nursing career at one of the Appleton hospitals where he will be doing some of his residency training. The idea of “family” is very important to him, which is one of the many reasons he chose the field of “family” medicine. He began college with an interest in becoming a children’s book illustrator and was awarded various art scholarships. Along the way he was surprised by how much he loved science courses and switched to medicine. He graduated from Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina having achieved honors in science, fine art and athletics and was also the starting fullback on a Division 2 football team. Joey’s illustrations have appeared in an orthopedics textbook, as well as public exhibitions. He plays a number of ethnic instruments including the Irish bagpipes, tin whistle, and duduk; has toured with American composer Tim Janis; has been a featured performer twice at Carnegie Hall in New York City; and has recorded on various albums, including a project by Janis which was dedicated to people suffering with ALS. He attended medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee where he was recognized by his class for being a standout in ethics. In the future, he hopes to have a sports medicine focused practice in Wisconsin. Joey is an avid backpacker, values a well-rounded life and spending time with his wife and son."

What if the same artwork showed one image to those entering the church and a different image to those leaving? I'm considering a lenticular image for New Life Evangelical Lutheran in Shoreview, MN. A lenticular image intersperses several images in vertical strips and aims them in corresponding directions. Each image only works from a particular vantage point.
