Old & New - A Project of Biblical Proportions
Wed, 03/28/2012 - 09:36
Many of you remember the Word Project by Jim LePage, featured here some time ago, when we gave away some of his project posters. Jim is back in another great project, now in Biblical Proportions.
Jim, along with Troy DeShano just launched a new collaborative Bible design project called Old & New. They have an amazing roster of international illustrators, artists and designers from all different faith perspectives contributing biblical artwork for this project, and proceeds from print sales will go to Blood:Water Mission providing clean water in Lwala, Kenya, and that's amazing.
Old & New provides a platform for contemporary graphic artists to exhibit works themed on Biblical stories and passages. It also aims to introduce a new online audience to Biblical art, attempting to replace popular, yet sometimes low-quality, contemporary Biblical artwork with the kind of accessible and honorable work that has historically been associated with the Bible.
Check out the posters they got so far. Also, you should really check the project site and help out buying some pieces. It's gonna be awesome for everyone to help them out, since this is gonna provide clean water to people in need. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers! ;)
