This new drawing of Jesus Christ was created with charcoal on strathmore paper.  This second version is a more accurate depiction of the human body and proportions.  Of course, most of the drawing was created from my mind, but I did use a model (myself) to get the right proportions.  Please post a comment and let me know what you think.

Some Thoughts Behind This Drawing

I was thinking and concentrating on Jesus’s message to love one another. One hand is reaching out and one hand is on his heart for so many reasons: to love God, to love your neighbor as yourself, to be centered on His (Jesus) love, to be centered on your own love, that within you is the Kingdom of Heaven, that within us all is the ability to become like Him, we are all children of God, our souls desire to return to God.

Want To Use This Drawing For You Church Newsletter?

I have received a number of emails from people asking for permission to use my drawings in their church newsletter.  I think this is a great idea and I offer permission for use so long as you email me to let me know.  I also ask that you include my name and website information near the drawing somewhere: “Created by Jaison Cianelli,”

Jesus Christ from Luke 6:27-36

[27] But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, [28] bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. [29] If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. [30] Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. [31] Do to others as you would have them do to you.

[32] If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them. [33] And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ do that. [34] And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ lend to ‘sinners,’ expecting to be repaid in full. [35] But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. [36] Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.


Turn to Love – Never Been a Better Time

There has never been a better time in history to remember peace and love.  To embrace your friends and neighbors and to work the land so that you are better suited to live without money.  A bigger government can not solve our problems, infact it can only create more rules and complicate things.    Confucius once said, “To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; To put the nation in order,  we must put the family in order; To put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life;  To cultivate our personal life,  we must first set our hearts right.” 

So make sure to set your heart straight in peace and love and help your brothers.  Acknowledge the Great Spirit of God that abides in everything and nurture that faith that everything is in His hands.  To quote Jesus: “love one another, as I have loved you.”

This piece was inspired by Jesus from Matthew 11:28-29.  There will be many more pencil drawings to be created of Jesus.  This was very natural for me to create.
“Come to me all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for you souls.”
