Our special guest artist this month is another of my dearest friends. Spencer McCool Jr. is a man of many talents. He is the Pastor of Greater Life Ministries in Utica, Michigan. He, and his wife Tessa, have two wonderful children, and are involved in their community.
You might not expect someone as busy as he is to be a skilled artist, but you’d be wrong. He describes his love of art this way, “Art for me is a release. It’s an opportunity to go into my own world for a few hours. I feel like art should be something you love, and it should be fun. If art isn’t fun you aren’t doing it right.”
While more of a Marvel guy, we both share a love of Batman. His newest piece features his interpretation of two of my favorite characters in the Batman universe. They are Batman and Penguin. We hope you love “Ominous” as much as we do.
One of the most talented men I know is Travis Cantrell. He works a full time job, teaches at his Church, and writes brilliantly. He is also working to improve the lives of those in the rural Appalachian mountains. You can help him make a difference by supporting the Appalachian American project @ appalachianamericanproject.org. On top of all of that, he is one of the greatest artists that I’ve ever met. His guest post today was by special request, the Mexican fox, Zorro.
My younger brother, who plays at least five instruments, literally starting drawing on his iPad yesterday. This is one of his first pictures, and I have to say, I was impressed, not because he’s my brother, but because of his talent. I still can’t draw Batman anywhere close to this realistically. As a matter of fact, I learned something today. Here is one of my favorite people, and one of my favorite characters.
