This illustration is a review of the illustration about the boy lost in the woods and found by the forest ranger.
Here is an excerpt from the accompanying lesson text.
Finished another illustration this evening…
This illustration is an example from the “Meet the Author” Bible lesson series where a suggestion is given for a visual aid. The teacher could remove an actual letter from an envelope and begin reading. For those who may not have a letter/envelope on hand, we’ve included an illustration. The letter is building a bridge from something they are familiar with to better understand a Biblical truth they are unfamiliar with.
The title of this blog entry might not make sense to some of you. Stay with me as I explain …
Several excerpts from the Bible lesson series, Meet the Author:
I completed another illustration for the Meet the Author Bible lesson series this evening. I might tweak some colours later on before it’s printed this summer. The colours (especially the violets and oranges) will become more muted than they appear here, when converted to CMYK for printing.
We look forward to visiting with many of you during our time in the States. Some have asked about when & where we would be sharing our ministry in churches. I’ve included a website link for the church when available so you can get directions and times. If you have additional questions, please drop us an email. I will try to keep the list up-to-date as more meetings are being scheduled.

For 14 years, Suzanne Jones was secretary to Roy Harrison, the European Regional Director. She will be returning to N. Ireland.
Paul & Audrey Reid have been with CEF for 43 years and in recent years were serving in Kilchzimmer as head of the European Education Dept.. They will be returning to Spain where they served as missionaries.
The Mayhew family will move to France where Philippe will be the National Director of CEF France. Philippe worked at Kilchzimmer in the Education Dept..
Lizanne Dumigan was head of the Multi-Media Dept. and worked as Administrative assistant to the European Director. She arrived in Kilchimmer during the mid-80s, shortly before we did and worked closely with Sue & I all these years in the Literature production ministry. She was a great asset to the department and will be missed. Lizanne returned to N. Ireland and plans to marry in August.
The Preschool Instructor of Teachers (IOT) pilot course is being held this week. These key veteran CEF workers will return to their regions and conduct the course in how to reach and teach preschoolers. Future IOT courses for preschoolers will be planned. Tim taught two classes on working with puppets.

We had an encouraging week of meetings with valuable discussions/teaching continuing outside of class from morning until bed-time! You would have several workers sharing challenges they faced with literature in their country, then someone else would share their solution to the problem, so the week was not just for workers to learn but to also share their experiences with others.
We finished the week tired … but it was a good tired!
This is just one example of what I will be sharing in the Digital Imaging/Photoshop seminar. There will be around 45 key CEF literature workers coming to Kilchzimmer from all over Europe and as far away as Central Asia for training in the production of literature and coordinating the literature ministry in their countries. The Multimedia Summit will be held the last week of February.
Sometimes I’m asked to add colour to existing B/W line artwork as will be the case with this lesson on the Parables. This artwork was drawn by a woman in Italy and made available to CEF. I scanned in the line drawings, separated the black lines from the white background and used Adobe Photoshop to add colour, surface texture, etc.. Depending on the complexity of the image and other requests that come past my desk, I can complete 1 to 4 pictures per day.
