THE SEED BEARER – Wonderfully made
Male seed bearer illustration
Seeds designed to be sown
Sacks of protection
Fearfully and wonderfully made
Needs wombed man
Love to be known
Eggs to germinate
I won my race
I tell this story
I met the egg
See my face
Thank you God
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 Seed Bearer idea birthed after I had illustrated the sculptured work of Michelangelo. To be honest, I was first attracted to the idea of drawing the sculpture after observing such amazing craftsmanship in beautiful carving. In the process of drawing, I had insights into the male physical being which led to more research and understanding. I am a unique creature beginning to understand myself better as a male. I carry sperm sacks and learn not to be ashamed of my personhood anymore. Within my seed sack dwells the new generation and in my case, (2018) seed sowing hasn’t found the right soil type.
She will be wonderful, an honor for Jesus to cherish a new generation.
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 one partner for life comes the love protection and trust needed on earth reflecting heave
I was birthed from this equation.
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. Light hand strokes were cross-hatched 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.
