Art and design by Jim LePage

Q&A: Is there a sense of responsibility you feel with your artwork?

The following is from a past interview. Want to schedule an interview? Hit me up.


Some of your designs are rather bold. Did you have any sense of weightiness or responsibility with those?

I definitely have a sense of weightiness and responsibility with my artwork, but I'm never worried about being too bold in the sense of being controversial or inappropriate. The weightiness and responsibility I feel is about being honest. If I post something bold or controversial and some folks didn't like it, I'm totally fine with that. The thing that bugs me about most Biblical art is that it takes subject matter that is powerful, controversial and challenging and distills it into something that feels superficial and easy. I feel a responsibility to be real and not sugarcoat things. If someone is mad or critical about a post, that's fine. I actually kinda like that. If I was not completely honest in a post, then that is a failure on my part.
