Keep Fishing

The Methodist Church Sheffield District launched a grant called ‘Keep Fishing’, to be used by churches who wanted to engage in deeper mission with their communities. I was asked to create a cartoon strip showing a fisherman who spends all night fishing with no luck – until he moves to the other side of the boat, calling to mind the Bible story where Jesus asks Peter and the other fishermen to try the other side of the boat when they have had an unsuccessful night. The catch was so large it almost capsized the boat. I drew the cartoon strip, which was turned into a postcard, along with a single image of the fisherman and his fish.
