I’m no angel… I’m just drawn that way


The amazing Yan Herbe, who’s been a fan of my Facebook page for a while now, recently sent me these incredible drawings, and I gotta say I’m totally blown away by them. Yan calls me “Angel Jesse, down from a dark sky bringing light with him.” While I’m definitely no angel — I have my devilish moments too! — I just think that Yan has created something truly beautiful here, and I wanted to share his amazing work with all of you.

I’m not sure if he has any more drawings planned in the series, but if he does, I can’t wait to see them (and I’ll of course share them if he does). By the way, here’s one of the images that he used as his source material. It’s incredible to me that he was able to take this picture of me in a kilt and turn me into an angel of light. What a remarkable gift!


Update 10/19/2014: Here’s a couple more creations that Yan has spun since I originally wrote this post. Amazing as always… and I’m thrilled that he included Dirk in one of them!

      Deansson, I seem to recall that Leo, the Whitelighter/Guardian Angel on “Charmed,” did have a romantic relationship with Piper, and then married her. So, it is possible.

    Jesse, great WordPress bloggers think alike. About an hour ago, I was thinking about how it has been too long since I have written a post singing the praises of someone who is especially talented.

    Yan Herbe is extraordinarily talented. Although, in my not-at-all humble opinion, Mr. Herbe made you look more erotic than angelic, but I digress.

    I use Facebook as little as possible, but I AM going to enjoy visiting Mr. Herbe’s page.
