Jonah (WVC VBS Time Warp)


1 Attachment

1 of 4 illustrations for the Vacation Bible School program for Woodmen Valley Chapel. Super inspired to bring these epic stories and Bible heroes to life and try giving them a unique new take on the characters and perspectives.

The story of Jonah is of course on of the most recognized and classic sunday school stories, however I love that they are focusing more on the struggle Jonah had with God's grace toward Nineveh, and God's own grace with Jonah rather than the whale tale. I did weave the whale in, as a reminder to Jonah of where God had brought his own disobedience from. The shrivelled tree and plump worm are from the passage Jonah 4:1-11.

I worked the Cliff and Biff characters as well as the time machine into each scene, subtle and in the background as onlookers ... so as not to mess with the space time continuum and all!
