an encounter

April 28, 2008

The below cover was just approved by the Fortress Press editors. The original image is a man staring at a blank canvas (“modern art”). This is an academic textbook with a desired “approachable” feel, so I wanted to focus literally on an encounter in the NT—in this case, Jesus healing the blind man—while avoiding Biblical-cover cliches and retaining a contemporary feel. I unified the two images from there for an effective composite. I was happy with the result and so were my editors!
