New Blog Post and New Illustration!

 Two-Way Tuesday!

Spent too much time on this… but it made me happy. Fantasy character, possibly a cleric of some kind.

Had so much fun sketching last night at the Culturemap Dallas Stylemaker Awards! Cleaned up the sketch and colored it in Photoshop. Enjoy!





This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:

The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.

According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.

When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.

So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.

This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.


This could help a lot of people.

Was so happy to attend the CultureMap Dallas Stylemaker Awards event tonight! It was a lot of fun! You can read all about it on the blog: http://evaduplanart.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-culturemap-stylemaker-awards.html

My 100 sample cards were delivered yesterday to Tootsie’s for the Culturemap Dallas Stylemaker Awards tomorrow! I’m so excited for this event, and I hope that the people who receive gift bags really enjoy my cards!

I wrote about them on my blog: http://evaduplanart.blogspot.com/2014/10/100-strong-look-at-sample-cards-made.html

Taking a little break from my usual illustrations. Did a fun, quick illustration of Romeo and Juliet - pen and watercolor/gold gouache. Nothing fancy, not even paying much attention to accurate perspective. The line art you are free to color as you like, and if you post it, tag me!

It’s also available as prints and other products at my society6 store: http://society6.com/evawilsonart/romeo-and-juliet-k1e#1=45

Did some SCA illuminations today - one that is specific for my husband and I, the other more generic. Both central around the Ansteorran Queen for possible options as future letters of intent for Queen’s Champion.
