Each month, we pick a Christian Creative to share their #FiveFaves with us in the below categories – here were Jarvis’s top picks (also known as @JMaurice on Instagram):
1) Favorite app or tool for your art?
Photoshop and Illustrator.
2) Favorite book or blog you frequent?
- Fifty Reasons Why Christ Came to Die by John Piper
- Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer
- The Jealousy of God by Erik Thoennes
- The Strong Name by James Stewart
3) Favorite mentor or influencer who pushes your creativity?
My best friends Willie B who is a producer, and Hafid Roserie who is an Art Director at EA Games. A number of friends from art school and an art teacher I had by the name of Rick Reese. That dude always pushed me in class and would call me out if I was slacking off.
4) Favorite song or album while working?
The following artists for sure:
- Hawk House
- Eshon Burgundy
- Beautiful Eulogy
- Kidd’s last album Hippsavvy
- Ichiban:Live from Manhattan
- Selah the Corner
- Soulection Radio
- DJ Aktual
- J Dilla
- The Internet
5) Favorite quote or advice you’ve ever received?
My favorite quote would have to be by my grandfather Pastor B.T. Newman. He would humbly say, “All that I have God gave me, all that I am God made me, and all that I know God taught me.”
More About Jarvis Taylor:
I’ve been drawing pretty much my whole life. I used to sit with my dad in church when I was a little child and he would always whip out a pen and some paper and teach me how to draw. In 2008 I graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a B.F.A. in Illustration. I currently work as an in-house artist for a clothing company here in Los Angeles. At this point of my life I would have to say my favorite scripture is 1 Corinthians 10:31 where Paul says “whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.” And that’s what I try to do with my art, glorify God.
