I’d already been creating some designs based on Bible passages or sermons in order to up my Photoshop and Illustrator skills for some time, so after creating the I AM Thou Art Logo, I set about getting a website up to maintain my growing collection of art.
Initially, I wanted to create my own website entirely from scratch, but as I was cranking out new art almost once or twice per week, I decided it would be better for me to just grab a unique WordPress theme and get publishing. I decided on the AutoFocus Pro Child Theme (based on the Thematic Theme Framework) and got to writing. I wrote up a lengthy (1,000-2,000 word) post about every piece of art I created including:
- WHY I chose to create it
- The different ELEMENTS included within the art
- WHAT I thought about it
- HOW I thought I should live life as a result of it
Admittedly, some art I created was probably a little controversial for everyone (Christians and non-Christians alike), but it all had STRONG visual imagery with deep meaning behind it, so it was a fun project to work on.
