Topic: Hymnal Art
I have been doing more artwork to illustrate songs in my hymnal.
In the history of this hymn we learn that some of the lyrics are referencing Jacob's ladder. Knowing that, I got a picture in my head of climbing a ladder to get closer to God's kingdom, through the cross.
The angels are mentioned in the lyrics as well.
Other than the lettering (which is brush marker) and the line-art (black Prismacolor pens) the illustration is completed in colored pencils.
