Art selection and comment by Lil Copan
John Hendrix’s work has appeared in a variety of publications, from children’s books to Rolling Stone and the New Yorker. He has also produced a series of “drawing in church” sketches, created during worship services at his Presbyterian church. “As the preacher climbs behind the pulpit, I open my sketchbook and uncap my pen. I respond to what I hear and coax an image out of the language and concepts of faith, ritual, and liturgy.” Hendrix is a professor of design and illustration at Washington University in St. Louis.
