Jesus prepared a place
I am full of wonder when I consider the anatomy of a male. I love drawing what I see and certain images inspire me to muse upon the truths hidden within the revelation of an insight. The Male seed bearer illustration is no exception.
The story of the “Seed Bearer” was birthed during my illustration process from a Michelangelo sculpture. To be honest, my first attraction for drawing the sculpture was because I saw such amazing craftsmanship in Michelangelo’s stunning carving. In the drawing process, I had insights into male physiology which led to research and better understanding. As a male, I am unique and now better understand myself. I carry sperm (seed) sacks and should never be ashamed of my maleness. This has not always been the case for me. Within my seed sack dwells another generation and as yet has not sown seeds in the right soil type.
The soil for my seed is yet to be found but I am assured it will be a wonderful discovery. It will be an honor for Jesus to cherish what He has given me to produce and nurture.
Humour with a bite
A bit of humor inspires my visionary appetite to stir some trouble by “Putting the cat among the pigeons of skepticism”. This bit of rebellion challenged me to put “The Seed Bearer” out there among critics to shred to pieces. Others will go, Wow, “I never thought of that”, while others will already know what I have just discovered.
Truth is the truth. We all journey in a land of discovery. This moment of my enlightenment is now manifest.
Why the male and female
I am conscious God has given us everything to enjoy. When He made testicles as seed sacks He had in mind pleasurable functionality needing another participant in the equation. Welcome female or the wombed man carrying a few million eggs. Without that combination, you would not be reading this story. In line with a union with one partner comes the love, protection, and trust needed to reflect the heart of heaven.
The illustration technique
The challenge to illustrate and control pencil leads to mid-tone *(Chiaroscuro) sensitive capture of the skin tones and shape of the torso challenged me to experiment. In this case, I wanted a more sensitive pencil stroke. I combined a soft 4b and 6b pencil and cross-hatched the drawing on archival, acid-free watercolor paper.
* Chiaroscuro (Italian for light-dark) in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition.
