The October illustrations For the Makers were all about black and white – so just pen and ink drawings with a touch of color from Photoshop. I love how they turned out, simple and clean.

Check out all four of the October projects at For the Makers.

Simplicity is something I’m falling more in love with – aesthetically and just life in general. The leaves are starting to fall from trees around here, and I pointed it out to our 3 year old and he said, “we’d better put them back!” No, I tried to explain. God made our world in such a way that it makes for itself a clean slate. No lush trees or foliage for months, just stark lines and dull greys. I’m learning to love this time of year, just because it’s necessary. Simplification = future growth.
