Valentine’s Day, Illustrated

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 5 years since my friend Yan Herbe messaged me to politely ask if he could draw me. He’s crafted well over a hundred awesome works since then! He often draws Dirk and me as angels or devils, and always creates special ones for Christmas, Halloween, and Valentine’s Day. I’ve been meaning to post all of his drawings in one place… but for now — to celebrate the day — here are all of his Valentine ones.

Thank you, Yan… I’m honored to be your friend. Thank you for each and every thing you do.

Story of Angel: Yan Herbe’s epic Caber/Jackman comic novella

Many of you are already familiar with Yan Herbe. He’s been a regular contributor to my Facebook page, often posting amazing drawings of Dirk and me, usually with me depicted as some form of angel or devil. (Here are a few past examples.) Yan’s been quiet for a while, but it’s because he’s been working on this… an 22-panel epic called “Story of Angel” featuring me and my hubby! Check out the video below!

I can’t help but notice the “To Be Continued” tag at the end. More to come, perhaps? I hope so!

I’m no angel… I’m just drawn that way

The amazing Yan Herbe, who’s been a fan of my Facebook page for a while now, recently sent me these incredible drawings, and I gotta say I’m totally blown away by them. Yan calls me “Angel Jesse, down from a dark sky bringing light with him.” While I’m definitely no angel — I have my devilish moments too! — I just think that Yan has created something truly beautiful here, and I wanted to share his amazing work with all of you.

I’m not sure if he has any more drawings planned in the series, but if he does, I can’t wait to see them (and I’ll of course share them if he does). By the way, here’s one of the images that he used as his source material. It’s incredible to me that he was able to take this picture of me in a kilt and turn me into an angel of light. What a remarkable gift!

Update 10/19/2014: Here’s a couple more creations that Yan has spun since I originally wrote this post. Amazing as always… and I’m thrilled that he included Dirk in one of them!
