Promiseland Curriculum Illustration
Character Design and Illustration
To better present the story of God’s love to an urban, multicultural population of kids, Willow Chicago – the downtown campus of Willow Creek Community Church – created its own curriculum. The character designs reflect historically accurate ethnicities for the regions depicted in the Bible, illuminating the diversity of God’s creation.
For a lesson on The Fall, a series of comic strip images was created to be displayed while a live storyteller read from scripture. The limited color palette ties to colors used elsewhere in the curriculum units on Creation and The Fall.
A variety of Story Images – illustrations of events from scripture – were created to support the storytellers’ classroom reading. Some of these were also used for activities such as interactive sticker sheets and coloring pages.
A curriculum unit on The Church allowed the opportunity to create images of both the historical Acts 2 church and the Promiseland classroom itself, letting the children see themselves as a unique part of God’s ongoing story.
