Wherefore, I will send their words forth unto my children to prove unto them that my words are true. Wherefore, by the words of three, God hath said, I will establish my word.
This silly illustration is inspired by the loose and imaginative drawings of Quentin Blake, illustrator of ‘Where the Sidewalk Ends’. Blake is a key influence in my work.
Here I was thinking of the three witnesses of the plates of the Book of Mormon (Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer, and Martin Harris.) The organization of three counselors or witnesses is repeated through every part of church organization.
This is an original handmade etching. It was created at the Lower East Side Printshop. The plate was created by etching the lines into a copper plate. The plate was then soaked in an acid bath, inked by hand, and run through a printing press to create a this one of a kind image. Each image varies slightly.
Printed on Rives BFK 280 gsm. The paper size is 11x14".
Comes to you beautifully wrapped!
This image was printed as part of an edition of 8. There are two artist proofs available as well.
