Description

Sam Fox School of Art and Design at Washington University, St. Louis

The pairing of pictures and text is as old as literature itself. Working in concert, words and images create a new space, a third language that neither can replicate on its own. Illustrator and author John Hendrix will talk about his work and the rich potential of visual storytelling, spiritually and aesthetically. How can beauty be a doorway to expanding our imagination? John Hendrix is known for his 'drawing-in-church' sketchbooks, his web-comic, The Adventures of The Holy Ghost, and his numerous children's books, including, Miracle Man, The Story of Jesus and his graphic novel The Faithful Spy: Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Plot to Kill Hitler, from Abrams Books for Young Readers.
