The Bread of Life

Bread of Life

View at full size.

The bread of Life is the first in a series of scripture based images. It is also the first attempt at really integrating Illustrator and photoshop though I was not using smart objects as I do now with CS3. The bulk of the work was done in Illustrator, saved as an EPS and then imported into photoshop – rasterized – and then colored and composite layers added for effect.

Scripture: “Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

This piece is generally liked though some have questioned the imagery such as the “knife blades” etc. This piece is a very personal one and reflects the impact that John 6:35 had on me at the time – and still does today. My idea was to eventually animate this piece in Flash but I have never gone back to that. It was not designed in a way that would make that possible without having to redo a lot of the image. I will leave it as is.
