Bible Journaling - Philippians 4:8
Topic: Bible Journaling

As soon as I started considering this scripture for Bible journaling this was the image that popped into my head (no pun intended). I had to do some searching to find a reference photo for it as I could not remember what it was called.

"Phrenology [from Wikipedia] is a pseudomedicine primarily focused on measurements of the human skull, based on the concept that the brain is the organ of the mind, and that certain brain areas have localized, specific functions or modules. Although both of those ideas have a basis in reality, phrenology extrapolated beyond empirical knowledge in a way that departed from science." The phrenology head is a kind of 'map' to the mind that these people used.
 
I searched and found several models of this and used one as the basis for a rough drawing in my sketchbook several weeks ago. When I decided to do this scripture today I worked only from that drawing and basically redesigned the head to sketch into my Bible. The key elements carried over from the original were the dividing lines on the top of the head designating the various areas.
 
The second reference I used was on drawing scrolls, which I had photographed into my phone from a drawing book. I also looked up font references on how to draw and shade chiseled lettering.
 
Next, I wrote the 'thoughts' from the scripture into the areas outlined on the head.
 
With these items sketched in place with pencil, I was able to ink in the scripture and the illustration and finish with colored pencils.

I made the colored areas match the lettering on the scroll, used a variety of greys to shade and model the head, and did the same for the scrolls.


Because the phrase 'whatever is' was repeated over and over in the scripture I turned it into a simple bulleted list with this phrase as the header.

I put the reference into a 3D box to mimic the sculptured head.
