When we moved back to the States and found a church to attend, our youth pastor, Abe Stratton, reminded me of Jonas Armstrong who portrayed Robin in the series. After getting to know Pastor Stratton better, his strong leadership skills and vivacious personality made it clear that he was more like Robin Hood than just meets the eye. He cared deeply for the teenagers he was teaching and mentoring and for his church. In the Bible, a bow often symbolizes the doctrine of truth and a tool used for carrying out the gospel. Not only is the bow highly iconic for Robin Hood, but it also plays a great significance in depicting Abe Stratton as a pastor.
A while back, a friend of mine at church shared my blog with some people that she knows, and they wanted me to draw their grandson for them. I was happy to do it, and I’m really glad they’re enjoying it now! I may do more of their family in the future.
