Lent and Easter of 2011 was full of the seven different “I AM” statements that Jesus makes before his death.
In order to incorporate them all, I decided to actually use the words in the graphic. This posed a problem, as there were so many. I came up with the idea, and then search the interwebs for ideas on how to make it work. Other than a few specific differences for our situation (colors, textures, actual text, etc) I found my inspiration here. No need to explain how it’s done, if someone else already has!
For Easter, we changed the color scheme a bit to inspire hope.
For the most part, I simply changed the cloud rendering colors, a few other filters and some gradient on the other text. This image was for a local newspaper, so the text is a bit small on the “I AM.” But it had to be sacrificed on such a small image.
Overall, this was a graphic package that I am very proud of. It was so mysterious throughout Lent, as we encouraged people to search out who Jesus was trying to tell them that He was. And, on Easter, to remind us all that not only “was” He the resurrection & the life, but he “is” for us everyday.
