Jacob and Esau

I have recently been reading Andy Wales blog "Panel Discussions". He has some interesting stuff on his blog regarding using comics in the classroom and some neat bible comics. It inspired me to get this out of my pile. I did this in 1996 as a series of one page chapters. It was printed in the monthly Sunday School newsletter at my church. Previous to this I did an adaptation of Jonah that will never again see the light of day. I'm too embarrassed by it. Jacob and Esau, on the other hand, isn't too bad. I was still learning how to ink with a brush so it's rough in spots and the lettering is shaky. But, I don't cringe (much) when I look at it, so here it is.

Thanks, Tom and Eric.

Excellent! I love how you illustrated the baby Jacob grabbing the heel of Esau and later, his deception of his father. Very nice hand lettering -- I like that so much better than computer lettering. Great work, all the way around.

Also, thanks for the mention of my blog!
