Church Art?

I think I designed this back in 1997. I was working as a youth intern at my home church in Pensacola, FL. One of the events they had annually was a huge lock-in. At that point in time there were at least a couple of thousand teens showing up for the thing. It grew so big they started putting carnival rides in the parking lot. I believe we made a huge styrofoam version of this to hang as a promo piece but I don't have a picture of that. All I have is this. I used to do a lot of drawing at my church while growing up. I'll bet there's a ton of folks back home with sketches I've done on the backs of bulletins and such. I used to draw during the services and then I'd either give it or throw it away. 9 times out of 10 someone would take it from me to save it from the trash. Over the years I also worked as a custodian at my church and every once in a while one of the secretaries would have me draw up something they needed for VBS or whatever. I've designed characters for the children's ministry, VBS promo material, coloring books for the music department, and tons of clip art for the youth ministry. There's no telling how much I did for them over the years. I have some of it but I'm sure there's stuff I've forgotten. I'll try to share some of the other stuff with you all as time goes on. There's a metric buttload of it.
