Here's the reason I haven't been blogging for the last couple of days. What you see here part of the title design for my church DUMC's August drama production.
I've been a graphic designer for 11 years now. It's a thing I've always loved. Even as a kid, I was always doodling and drawing. Going to graphic design school and subsequently landing a job as a graphic designer are some of the highlights of my life.
These days, I contribute a bit of time doing design work for the church. To me, it's like giving back to God a little of what He gave to me. God doesn't really need my work, of course. But it's nice to know I can contribute, even in the smallest of ways.
It's a good thing when people are affected positively by my work. Hey, it pays the bills. :) But in the church context, I do it for free. No money involved, and yet, strangely, it satisfies me far more than anything I do professionally.
I'm finally growing up.
