Hilary's Holiday Hoorah


Sometime last year I was contacted by Hilary from way over in England.  She found a doodle of mine that I created for a children's camp here in Oregon.  Hilary wanted to use it as a logo for "Holiday Bible Club" they conduct each year.  (Over here in America we call them Vacation Bible Schools.)  I like kids and I sure want to do want ever I could to promote their Bible education, so I gave her my "blessing", of course.  The one condition would be the payment of photos from the event sent to me.  I've been saving these photos for some time, waiting for the chance to share them with you...


Included in the photos that she sent me was a picture of a "sculpture" they created based upon my doodle.  That was a first for me.  To my knowledge, no one has ever turned my art into a 3D image.  Pretty cool, huh!?!

This year, Hilary contacted me again about creating a brand new image for her.  I told her that I would have to charge her this time, but (I modestly add) it wasn't much—certainly not in today's Pounds to Dollars exchange rate.  Hilary wanted an image of a child, that could be seen as either male or female, riding a flying bike.  If you've been around my blog you know that I don't like to draw mechanical items, but for the kids I was going to give it the "Organized Doodles try."  

After playing with the colors to suit her taste, this is what I sent Hilary.  I hope to get some photos, yet again, of this year's event.
What do you think?

Update:  This note from Hilary...
Hi Rick,
Many thanks for that.  I thought your page was very interesting.  I’m so glad you liked our 3D model, it did cause quite a stir.  We are hoping to make a model of this year’s logo as well, but I haven’t mentioned that to our designer yet …

Thanks and God Bless,
Hilary

Very cool - although as the designer for many of our church events, it did give me a moment of panic that I might be asked to go 3D with an elephant in a jeep sometime . But they did a fantastic job!

I like your drawings! That's pretty cool that through the internet you are making drawings for someone so far away. Thank you for your visit to my blog today. :)
