Editorial Illustration for the article,”The Secret of Gratitude” written by Lee Nienhuis in the October/November 2019 Issue of Focus on the Family Magazine. Art Direction by Brian Mellema.


I was tasked to create 3 illustrations based on the theme of cultivating a garden to demonstrate how you need to cultivate and grow your gratitude. The first image is someone cleaning up an overgrown garden. The second image would be the garden beginning to look refined as the the person is working hard to take care of everything. The last image is a fully flourishing garden filled with flowers, fruits and vegetables.
