The word prompt this past Friday was “People” and I’ve been thinking about the people in my life for a few days.
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have opportunity, we should do good to everyone – especially to those in the family of faith.” (Galatians 6:9-10, NLT)
I was blessed to be raised in the Bronx, in close proximity to my extended family and church. We did everything together and there probably weren’t many days where we were not together.
Having a male cousin seven years older than myself was like having an older brother, which meant all of us younger cousins had someone to look up to. Throw in the fact that he was gifted both artistically and musically, and more opportunities were provided for admiration to grow.
Over the years, we have remained in touch although we live several hundred miles apart. Our phone conversations are thought provoking as we turn to discuss current happenings. We often find ourselves traveling down the path of our memories and it’s pretty good to say, many photos are shared afterwards.
I am taking the opportunity today to introduce you to my cousin David, a man who always had a love for art and photography, much the way his dad did before him. Hardly ever was there an outing where cameras were not involved. This is certainly a blessing as now we have memories caught on film that would otherwise have lived solely in our minds. But the photos not only bring the memories to life, they make them more memorable and cherished.
There was always the excitement of seeing the newest 3D characters which were often created. Sometimes David would have a little story which went along with the character, adding to the joy the drawings often would bring.
David was also talented in black and white sketches, capturing the details others would often overlook. He often created sketches from photographs provided or from his memory. These were most realistic, bringing the personality and emotions to life.
If you are in need of a book cover design, a photograph, church or school brochure, or a sketch, I would encourage you to check out his website. This is a most professional, gentle, and talented designer who would love to work with you.
