Over the past couple of years I’ve enjoyed interacting with Jim Lepage about faith, media, and art. He and Troy DeShano just launched a new collaborative Bible design project called The Old & New Project.
They have an amazing roster of international illustrators, artists and designers from all different faith perspectives contributing biblical artwork for the project, and proceeds from print sales will go to Blood:Water Mission providing clean water in Lwala, Kenya!!!!
I think this is loaded with potential!!! Here’s what the about page says:
Old & New provides a platform for contemporary graphic artists to exhibit works themed on Biblical stories and passages. It also aims to introduce a new online audience to Biblical art, attempting to replace popular, yet sometimes low-quality, contemporary Biblical artwork with the kind of accessible and honorable work that has historically been associated with the Bible. The website will be a curated collection of single designs by a variety of international illustrators, artists and designers. The collections will be released in an indefinite series of rounds. The goal of these rounds will be to bring new light to well known Biblical passages as well as introducing less familiar (or comfortable) content.
I encourage you to go over and check it out. And, to get a flavor for Jim’s artistic style, check out a guest post he wrote for me a while back… it is awesome!
