Iparana Studio News Edition



Pictures With A Message


This is a News Edition of Iparana Studio.

Let me introduce a cartoon character I am having fun developing - a branch from a coconut tree! I don't really have a name for it yet, but if anyone has any ideas let me know.

It's interesting in Revelation 22:2 it mentions the leaves of the Tree of Life are for the healing of the nations, and in Psalm 1:1-3 the righteous man is compared to a tree planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither - It's a picture to us when our lives are planted by the living water flowing from Gods throne - the living water Jesus gives (John 4:10-13) we too can be a tree that receives nourishment and that brings life to those around us and healing for the wounded of many Nations, this is Gods will for the lives of His people - to be BLESSED and to be a BLESSING - agents of reconciliation and healing in a world of brokeness and pain.


During last summer the Lord had been speaking to me the Scripture, "Ask of me and I will give you the Nations as your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. Psalm 2:8" Since then I began praying about this, wanting to know what it means and what should be my response. Then last October I had an idea - to send out free pictures by email to those who want to subscribe, at the time I thought at least I would give it a try and see what happens - and so began Picture Weekly.

Iparana Studio was first sent out as black and white artwork, and then progressed to colour using computer painting program to prepare pictures. The encouraging feedback and enthusiasm from subscribers from around the world helped me understand I am starting to see this scripture being fulfilled - I don't know exactly yet what the Lord has in mind, but I need to keep seeking Him for what this scripture means for the rest of my life.


The latest development - I am hoping to make Iparana Studio into a full colour book containing pictures and messages covering one year, at this stage I need to gauge the level of interest for the project and also need your prayers for this.
I have not finalised a price but hope to make it available at a reasonable price.
It's an unusual project - but God willing since Iparana Studio hopes to reach it's first birthday there would hopefully be enough pictures to make a book. Also I am thinking about making a Picture Weekly Calender - So if you have suggestions or like to express an interest in ordering please get back to me.


May I also share this for prayer for what I believe the Lord is showing me.
Working with Youth With A Mission means I am in an unpaid position, as staff I need to raise my own support. While I am looking to do the possible by selling cards and artwork I am also trusting the Lord to do the impossible....let me share some of the things that I believe the Lord would want me to develope.

Animated evangelistic cartoons - I have an idea of developing a Christian Cartoon company - The challenge to create cartoons which have an impact and appeal worldwide, to produce cartoons which are unashamedly Christian in content yet so entertaining that even non-Christians are eager to watch them.


Producing animated films and cartoons requires the right equipment and it's expensive - below are just some of the items required maybe even more - but the Lord will provide according to His will - He knows the way He wants to bless the project, I would be grateful for your prayers this.

Computer powerful enough for animation 2d and 3d

Projector for presentations and shows.

Adobe Digital Video collection, Illustrator, InDesign,AfterEffects,Premiere,

God bless you
