When people talk to me
i want longer eyelashes so when i blink i can knock down cities with them
Hey fellow Tumblr-ers (Tumblites? Tumblanders??) It’s been a while, but I’m back with some illustration-y goodness!
I’m challenging myself to making character designs from the catalog of the late, great fashion designer Alexander McQueen. Many of you will be familiar with McQueen’s work because of Lady Gaga, who most memorably wore his designs in her video for “Bad Romance”.
Anyway, these drawings are meant to be relatively quick and spontaneous to get me out of my comfort zone, and I plan to experiment with a bunch of different techniques. Some days, I’ll probably be more literal than others, but hopefully, I’ll always learn something.
Today’s character design is based on a bullfighter-inspired outfit from his “El bail de toro retorcido” collection (“The dance of the kinky bull”)

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. (Psalm 100:4, NKJV.)
As believers, we have the honor and privilege to enter boldly into God’s presence. Scripture says that we can come to His throne of grace and receive His mercy. Because He loves us, He has given us unlimited access to Himself 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
But notice that today’s verse tells us that we shouldn’t just come any old way to God. We shouldn’t come empty-handed to the King of kings and the Lord of lords. What can we bring? What do we have that’s worthy of Almighty God? Our praise. Our thanksgiving. Our worship. We are to enter His gates with an offering from our hearts of adoration because He is worthy!
We have to understand, praise isn’t just about singing songs on Sunday mornings. Praise is the expression of gratefulness to Father God for Who He is and all that He has done. Praise gets God’s attention. Praise is a powerful tool in the life of the believer because God inhabits our praises! When we enter His presence the right way, He enters our circumstances, and when God shows up, the enemy must flee! Today, enter into His gates with thanksgiving and open the door for Him to move on your behalf!
A Prayer for Today
Father, I come to You today with thanksgiving in my heart. I enter into Your courts with praise. Today I declare that You are good, and Your mercy endures forever! Have Your way in me by the power of Your Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Lena and Bill. Good ole conversation.
