Marty Jones / Self-promotion

To me, this is the heart of illustration– to tell a story; to make a story more clear and understandable by the use of images.


My fear, and my frustration, is always that I haven’t served the story well enough with my illustrations. This sometimes happens when I have to rush to meet a very short deadline.


Jesus told parables- stories- so that those who chose to listen to his stories would ask, “…why is He saying that? what does it mean?”


The ultimate answer to all of our questions is I AM– the story the Eternal told Moses. “You shall know this day and place it in your heart that the Eternal is God in heaven above and on earth below; ain od.” [Deuteronomy 4:39]


“ain od- a Hebrew expression in this verse meaning there is nothing else.” [Dr. Gerald Schroeder, The Hidden Face of God]


I believe that one of our purposes here on earth is to share our stories with others; to build stories with others; to pass on our stories to those that follow us.


Blessings, Marty
