In 2015, the Lord dropped in on Byron's heart to start what we know now as Blacksheep Collective. Byron had a lot of drawings and ideas, but they would have never come to fruition if it wasn't for his wife, April's, encouragement and business management skills. Together Byron and April ( along with a host of amazing, talented people ) push the mission and vision of Blacksheep Collective forward.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” - Romans 12:2 KJV
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:” - 1 Peter 2:9 KJV
To create beautiful pieces of art that magnify and glorify Jesus Christ and all of his attributes under the over arching theme of accepting and embracing one's own uniqueness and individuality.
The vision and purpose of Blacksheep Collective is to encourage you by letting you know that what you are and who you are is not a mistake. You are different on purpose and you should embrace that. You were never meant to fit in. You never were meant to follow the crowd. You have been chosen by the one true and living God and have been fearfully and wonderfully made. We want to encourage you to start walking in your true identity and to stop trying to be like everyone else. Stop being lame and start being awesome.
We want to spread the love and compassion of Jesus Christ through various creative mediums and outlets. We never want to copy or recreate things from the world, but use the creativity the Lord gave us to the best of our abilities, to glorify Him and to advance the kingdom of God. It is imperative that we do it all in excellence because he deserves our best.
