Cinema & the Arts as Sermons - UNSUNG HEROES OF ILLUSTRATION


Video from Pete Beard


"Monro Orr, Harry Clarke, Erté and Al Buell. Another four, and I hope you'll agree they are all up there with the best of them. And there was me thinking I might be scraping the bottom of the barrel by now." from video introduction.


God gives each of us gifts. It is up to us to find out what they are and use them to his glory. Most of us never really explore our gifts for various reasons, life is hard and often survival supersedes all else. So I urge you to explore your gifts or use what gifts you have to serve others and glorify God.

In this video the late Pete Beard did an excellent job of telling us about theses forgotten illustrators.
