Word Leftovers: Joshua (Blue Note)

One thing I've tried to do through my Word project is to train myself to re-imagine Bible stories as I read them. What if David and Goliath was a boxing match in the 1930s? What if Song of Solomon was a romance novel? What if Meshach did a hand plant in the fiery furnace? This time I wondered, what if the story of Joshua and the walls of Jericho was a Blue Note album from the 1950s?

Word Leftovers: Genesis 2

More leftovers this week! If I use exclamation points, I think that might actually make you excited for leftovers! I really hope it's working! Genesis has so many great stories, I could probably do 66 weeks just on that book. The original Genesis design dealt with Adam and Eve's first fashion show and the second design was on Joseph's sweet Zoot suit (there's a lot of clothing passages in Genesis, huh?). This time around we're looking at the world's first garden.

Word Leftovers: Song of Solomon 1

More Word leftovers this week. This time we're rewinding to Song of Solomon, the book so sexy it shouldn't be in the Bible. You may remember that my first pass at Song of Solomon was a bit technical. This time I got my sassy on. I'm hoping these designs will open the door into the elusive field of romance novel cover design. I have 2 leftover versions of Song of Solomon, so make sure to check out the other one.

Word Leftovers: 2 Kings

Still spending my time on getting prints available (I'm close!), so this week I have some more Word leftovers. This time it's prophets, teenagers and bears, oh my! You may remember that the prophet Elisha did some cool stuff like cleansing nasty water with salt, but he's also part of (in my opinion) one of the craziest, straight-out-of-an-action-movie passages in the Bible.

Word Leftovers: Daniel

OK, I'll admit it up front. This design is ridiculous. I mean, vector dancing people silhouettes? Am I serious? I think I just lost all my design cred with this one. Although I'd like to point out that the Bible never says that Meshach did not do a hand plant in the fiery furnace. So it's within the realm of possibility, right? I didn't have Amos ready today and had to dig into my bag of Word leftovers. This, unfortunately, is what came out.

Word Leftovers: Genesis

I had a pretty busy week so Job will have to wait until next week. I realize this is a real let down and that you will now be forced to go and find some other not-nearly-as-awesome thing to try to fill the void in your weekend. Although I don't have Job, I decided to post a second option I had worked up for Genesis. You know how bands will release an album, it's super popular and then they release an EP of a few more of their old reject songs so they can cash in on their new fan base? That's sorta what this is.
