A friend of mine is part of a house church called The Potter’s Shed. They are planning some outreach events in the community and wanted to have a T-shirt designed that they could wear during those events. Isaiah 64:8 is a fitting passage for their ministry and provided the insight for the design: “Yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”
I started the process by breaking out the old pen & ink set to freehand the lettering. I drew up the shed with some pottery arranged in front of it to help make it into a potter’s shed. After I was finished with the ink drawings, I scanned them into Photoshop, imported them into Illustrator, vectorized the high-resolution images, did some tweaking, and added the colors.
