felt marker

Sketch from church tonight. We have been walking through the christmas story, tonight's focus was on the magi (aka the three wise men). Also watched clips from the movie "The Nativity Story" (?) One of the clips had one of the magi trying to convince the other two to go with him to follow the star - he seemed to be the big faith guy, and the other two were more skeptical. Then in a later clip the star appears all dramatically above where Jesus is born, and the big faith guy goes to the other two - how is your faith now? or something to that effect. I liked the interpretation of having the skeptical magi, makes the story more relatable. I never really think about those details till someone or something spells it out for me.

also - sorry for the lack of blogging. People have been mentioning the lackage - which is totally ok. It's kind of encouraging actually, cuz sometimes I wonder if people still look at this thing. I do have a bunch of sketches I will post, just been too lazy to do the actual posting part. :P I made a little goal for myself, which I may as well share for accountability - to draw every day. Don't know if that will happen, but I will try. Would like my drawing to improve, and the only way to do that is lots of practice. Cuz it tends to get crappier the less I draw. wah.
