Peanut Butter | Adobe Illustrator | 2018
This illustration was a technical challenge to learn how to use the pen tool in illustrator for the first time. I chose my childhood pet rabbit Peanut Butter as the subject because he was a constant reminder to pay attention to the nudges in my spirit to say something or try something new. For many years as I battled chronic pain and illness as a teenager, I would pray bowed low with my forehead pressed to his while I was all alone in the middle of the night, tears rolling silently into his fur while he munched on hay; his gentle nudges back were a tangible reminder of God's love and that God hears us, we are not alone, and He is fighting with us and for us.
