Armor of God ....Today


Mixed Media

Artist Statement

The illustration is of a person with no face wearing today's armor symbolizing the armor of God. Behind the figure is another figure, again faceless, wearing a roman soldier's armor
( reflecting the armor as illustrated in the Bible)
A light is shining down on them from above. The Bible, raised in front of the sword is lit up! One side is gray-ish the other side Black... Below is a fog rising around them ( possibly sin that arises in our storms of life )
The illustration is without a face to be any person... That we can do All things with the tools good has given us.

How it fits into contest

I believe I touched on the total verse by being suited in the armor of God.


I came up with everything in this. I had originally drawn out a graphic novel type page but I wanted something better. The new chick I go to...Grace Life Church , inspired me for the front person in today style clothes, with graphic T-SHIRT and hat and backpack... They are very come as you are church. And this is similar to how some of their leaders dress.
