Saint John the Baptist: A Voice Crying Out in the Desert
Graphic novel, 6x9"
Ink, Adobe Photoshop, Indesign
The Voice in the Desert tells the story of the life of John the Baptist. I was excited to illustrate a biblical narrative since these stories tend to include dramatic plots, a variety of settings, and intriguing characters. The story of John the Baptist promised a particularly interesting challenge since it is not told as a continuous narrative in the Bible; rather, John's story is fragmented. However, I wanted to embrace this challenge and create a graphic novel that made John the Baptist's confusing story more accessible. My hope is that The Voice in the Desert is an engaging graphic novel for all kinds of people, particularly to young Christians interested in learning about John the Baptist.
