JESUS 2.0

This is a project I’ve been working on called Jesus 2.0.  It’s an infographic guide to performing some of JC’s most popular miracles,  printed on communion wafers. Pretty sweet huh? Yes, I know, it’s potentially offensive. However, my intentions for this project were primarily to amuse, rather than to offend. I do love the idea […]

Fluttering at the edge of dreams

Flamingo illustration.
