Jason Raish – Presbyterians Today Illustration Series

cover for a Series of illustrations for a Lenten devotional booklet that comes inside of Presbyterians Today. This is the cover.  Last year they were translating it into Korean as well so they wanted a Korean influenced crossover style cover. The year before it was done by Heidi Younger, who teaches at FIT now. They saw that I lived in Korea before from my website bio so they decided to call me. I’m Korean and was born in Seoul, and studied there for a year in 2001 but amazingly this is the first time i’ve ever drawn a hanbok (traditional Korean dress).

spot about fish and loaves that fed the masses. I used a young photo of my brother for this one. I had to tone down the indignant smirk on his face that he is infamous for though. and i updated his flannel shirt from an 80’s flannel to a modern hip pattern. I want that shirt.
