Hey Jerome, as a muralist, boy do I struggle to get good images of interior spaces, these are just absolutely beautiful!
The lighting, the angles, everything, just stunning.

This is a pen and ink drawing of the Western wall with two turtle doves on the top, symbolizing the scripture from "Song of Solomon 2:10-12": 10 My lover spoke and said to me, ÔÇťArise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me. 11 See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. 12 Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of turtledoves is heard in our land.

This was a fun project . . . back in 1965, I created a "Hermit Tree Crab" Exhibit at a local Vineland, NJ bank, and a friend, Mark Soifer, Public Relations Director of Ocean City, NJ, picked up the idea and created "Ms. Hermit Tree Crab Pageant" which is a spoof on "Miss America Pageant" - with a contest to choose the most beautiful Hermit Tree Crab every year in Ocean City, NJ. This has been going on for over 30 years. I created this graphic logo honoring her 30th year!

This is "ROWDY THE ROOSTER" - the Mascot for Vineland Senior High School that I created back in 1964 or '65 fro then famous wrestling coach, Tony "Big D" DiTomo. Vineland was once known for its nationwide poultry business (until the great heatwave of 1956, when all the chickens croaked) and the school mascot was a CHICKEN!! We were known as "The Fighting Poultry Clan", but our original mascot image (originally created by the coach's wife) was puny and scrawny, making our mascot a ridicule of rival football teams. "Big D" decided the school needed an image of a "MEAN ROOSTER" . . . so that's what I came up with. I also recently re-did the VHS (Vineland High School) Seal.

"BINDING THE STRONGMAN" Back in 1977, this was a vision of what I saw as a "Principality and Power" over America. This is taken from: Ephesians 6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." I was praying and fasting for two weeks to be able to see a vision of this "Principality". A dear friend, Mahesh Chavda, came into my office and prayed for me to get a vision of this principality . . . 2 minutes later, I did and it scared the hell out of me! Interesting, the word that I got to go with this vision was: "GREED". I had no idea how prophetic that vision and word was until these past few years and how much our country has succumbed to this horrible, self-centered character trait.

My old experience is ever to work in an advertising company as Art Director and Creative Designer.

To be honest, currently, I'm thinking how to developing my talented a comic and cartooning? Because the peoples of my country can not appreciating the people like me, Jerome.

And then for a while, I became a freelanced.com member started on January, 27. 2012.

Thank you for your question.

Widayat, thank you for writing.

As artists, we always seem to be misunderstood or not appreciated by those around us.

I think it is because we can see things that others cannot and they either get jealous or think we are crazy for seeing what we see.

My best advice is to pray and ask Jesus to help you see which way to go with your career. Often, when I am stopped, I just pray and ask God to show me what is the best way to go.

I hope you do well and I will be praying for you.

Hey Jerry, I totally agree with you. Asking the Almighty and seeking guidance through prayer is so important. When I am walking in agreement with God will, things "work". I believe the Lord has bigger things in mind for us than we could ever think, dream ,or imagine..

WENDY & WIDAY: PTL, you both must be believers, and without His love to guide our hands and minds, we lose our way!

I pray God will give you both an outstanding VISION FOR YOUR LIFE and lead you into the ministry He has designed for you since the beginning of time!
