My dad is a pastor at a small town church in Texas. For his latest sermon series, out of the book of John, he asked me to depict five scenarios (one not shown here) that would indicate different key moments in Jesus' life. He gave me the titles and the descriptions, and I gave him the illustrations. I tried to make Jesus look much different than we might expect him to look; instead of being calm, sedate, and looking up with blue eyes to his Father in heaven, I wanted him to always be looking in the camera, and to look extremely Jewish. In the one scenario not shown, entitled "Nic at Night," I even had Jesus accidentally closing his eyes for the picture.
