Video Bible Stories Coming Soon
by Noah Lugeons
A while back I decided to start putting the diatribe from each week’s episode on YouTube as a way of spreading our content around a bit. And then I fell behind on it and then I got caught back up and then I fell behind again. And then I fell really far behind.
I’m back it catch-up mode now, but we’re still 18 episodes away from up to date and despite getting 4 of them up over the weekend, I fear I might have inadvertently delayed things when I put the last video up. Lucinda and I were chatting about potential YouTube videos and she was lobbying to put up the “Lucinda’s Bible Stories for Kids” segments.
As much as I liked the idea, I told her that if we were going to do that I’d want to do it with some artwork; a slideshow of story-book style drawings illustrating all the graphic horrors. And at about the same time, somebody who saw one of the new diatribe videos on YouTube tweeted us suggesting that we put Lucinda’s Bible Stories up with storybook illustrations. And that’s all the encouragement I needed.
So I went through the first Lucinda’s Bible Story (Lott’s Daughters; episode 20) and made some notes on what pictures we would need to make it happen. To do what I want I’m looking at about 48 sketches, all of them relatively simple stuff, so nothing that should take longer than a week. It might make it a bit tougher to get up to speed on all the diatribes, but I’m willing to bet it’ll be worth it.
As I was talking Lucinda through my concept, I drew a couple of samples to give her an idea the style of artwork I had in mind:
What you’re seeing here is, left to right, god, Lott with his two daughters and a hamster peeking out of someone’s ass. Why is there a picture of a hamster sticking out of someone’s ass? Well, that’s just one of the many reasons you should be looking forward to the finished project.
