Description

In the Winter of 2020, in the midst of the first Covid lockdown, the artist of this drawing, named ‘Craig,’ contacted me. He simply pointed out that he had made this drawing in pencil on paper of Christ being crucified.  We exchanged messages and then when we finally spoke, he told me that this was his very first drawing he made of a Christian subject. He had been drawing celebrities before. For a very first attempt at drawing Christ, I do think this is a pretty amazing accomplishment. Christ’s eyes, the nails, the wood texture of the cross, the blood, the Roman soldier’s sandals, all make for wonderful, intricate detailing. 

Craig suffers from agoraphobia, a type of anxiety disorder in which you fear public places, open spaces and people gathering. He said that the Covid-19 lockdown for him was nothing unusual, as he feels he is in permanent lockdown at home because of his condition. Drawing for him is a way to communicate to the outside world, where he is afraid to venture at times.

As a means to raise funds for the Christian Art website, we thought to turn this drawing into a beautiful limited edition print of 200. If we manage to sell (which we hope) all two hundred prints, then it will help us to further build and expand the website. We send out nearly 1.8 million emails a month now which comes at a cost. 

The idea is to have a limited edition print each year for our Lenten appeal, and hence build up a collection of beautiful and beauty-filled Christian artworks over the next years. I think it could be a nice venture where we not only publish good artworks, but also support young Christian artists whilst at the same time raise money for our website. 

Thank you for all your support, and wishing a blessed Lent to you and your loved ones.
