I made this piece a little while back to be my head shot but a friend (Brenda Hendricks) suggested that it should be my entry for this week’s IllustrationFriday.com challenge of illustrating the word Shiny.
The idea behind the piece is a play on the old symbol of a lightbulb over the head as a symbol for an idea. My idea is being turned in by the scarred hand of Christ. This reminds me where my best ideas come from and where I should go when I need a new idea, to prayer and to God.
The best way for a creative to shine is to have a God-given idea and then run with it.
