Almost Alive


Back in the summer of 2011 I started creating some freelance artwork for bulletin covers, postcards, etc. For whatever reason I never got around to actually posting them here, and was only recently reminded about doing so.

This particular installment is a concept I developed called Almost Alive. I had the idea of a branch that was broken and bleeding, but that had been band-aided back together as a sort of metaphor for brokenness and healing. Megan and I headed down to Heritage Park in Olathe, KS, and found a good spot to break some twigs. The food coloring got a little out of control, but it ended up working out in the end.

I can’t remember if I left the band-aid on the tree or not…

My original intention was to eventually create a video to go along with this, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

There is a poem I also developed to go along with it, which is as follows:


For this series I created bulletin artwork, postcards, invite cards, banners, and graphic slides, all of which can be purchased at, either separately or as a bundle.

Hey, a little shameless promotion never hurt anyone, right? 🙂
