Lutheran Study Bible

Last year, Augsburg Fortress Press commissioned me to illustrate the Lutheran Study Bible. I received my copy just recently. It's beautiful! Some of my illustrations for the chapter opening pages are shown below. (All images copyright 2009 by Julie Lonneman.)

Digital experiments

My illustration for the February 2014 Celebration cover is meant to convey the many layers of meaning in the scriptures available to homilists.

Though this illustration is unabashedly digital, I started by sketching by hand. Then I cut the basic shapes out of plastic with a knife, also by hand. At that point I scanned them to my computer, added color and manipulated them in Photoshop.

Another recent work for the cover of Celebration.

Icon of the Seasons

I was asked to provide the seasonal panels for this icon which is the focal point of the Chapel of Christ the Healer at the new Mercy Health headquarters. I enjoyed the challenge of attempting something new (painting large) and the opportunity to collaborate with Schickel Design, who created this beautiful sacred space for the folks at Mercy. Martha Schickel Dorff designed the framework for this icon and carved the corpus.
Christmas season is shown above. There are five other sets of panels.
