church bible murals cartoon Jonah and the whale

Sometimes the simplest concepts make the greatest impact. Such is the case of this Jonah and the Whale Bible story mural for a children’s wing at Cowee Baptist Church in Franklin, NC.

First of all, let me state for the record I do realize the story doesn’t mention a “whale” but rather a large “fish.” But that certainly doesn’t mean it wasn’t a whale so I’m sticking to my version! At any rate, our Jonah and Fish/Whale mural is full of things children love – drama, conflict, humor and friendly, smiling aquatic animals. Still, the simplicity of the overall design let’s you focus on the main characters and not on busy background elements. Our big fish doesn’t look too threatening and, somehow, we’re pretty sure it’s all going to turn out okay.

Cartoon story murals are always children’s favorites whether it’s Bible stories or literary stories. It’s important to not only bring the characters to life but also make the environment vibrant so the kids feel like they are living right there in the story. We think think the kids will love swimming along with Jonah here while still learning important elements of the story.
