Centuries ago, the (religious) visual languages on offer were stained glass windows and elaborate fresco paintings. Today, our public visual language has become much more simplified and abstract.
I’ve seen relatively few attempts to translate common Christian imagery into the dialect of modern iconography, so I’m giving it a shot: one hand-drawn icon each day of the month in January 2015.
Someday, perhaps, I’ll bring these concepts all the way through to vector icons. If you’d like to get started on that, go for it!

Hi! I am really enjoying your posts! They are so cool!
I could see them framed and hanging on the wall. Great gift idea for my pastor / evangelist friend.
I have been trying to think of more icons and can’t wait to see what else you’ll create!

Thanks Mary! They’re fun to make.
One of these remaining weeks, I’ll try my hand at the six days of creation. Icons for them, that is.

I just now got caught up on posting! The creation week is up!
