Elgin has created this cartoon illustration for Easter. It shows the empty tomb and a large “Vacant” sign. Meanwhile a cartoon character of the Devil looks on in frustration. You can use the black & white version as a coloring sheet.

This cartoon style might not be right for all churches. We don’t want to minimize the reality of Satan and his ongoing war against Christ. However, this playful interpretation of his defeat would be prefect to start conversations about Jesus’ victory over sin and death. Leave a comment below to let us know what you think.

    As much as I want to say this is okay since I have always loved to color, I cannot and I am compelled to say something. Cartoons are not a good viable source to use with children, especially small ones, when speaking of Jesus. We spend full time teaching children Jesus is real and now we are sorting to cartoons! The simple word of cartoons means non realistic. Just like the one of satan as the cartoon character, this “could” allow children to think satan is not real. He is very real indeed. We also do not want to put Jesus in this category. You are placing Jesus in the same place as Bug Bunny; this was my first thought when I saw the pictures. I know we want ways to grab their attention, to hold their focus and make it exciting for them to learn, however Jesus has to be in separate category. These days and times when children are being bombarded with so many things on TV, Video games and movies, they will not be able to tell what is real and what is not. Jesus is real and we have such a few short years with our children that we cannot waste one minute. I am sorry as my intention is to never hurt anyone but my true belief is that Jesus is as real and alive now as ever and we cannot be the ones to cause confusion in the minds of small growing developing children.

    I love this imageof the Devil Lost cartoon. We can always find pictures of flowers and the beauty of Easter, but this one depicts the battle for our souls that was won when Christ rose from the grave. I can easily explain that the devil is NOT red, with horns, and a pointed tail–but it’s impossible to make an invisible spirit visible in a picture. Thank you.

      Claire, what makes this picture great is that it’s a springboard to actually discuss the enemy appropriately to children so they get an idea of who our enemies, and how he was defeated. I mentioned this in a previous post, but keep in mind that this “red suit, horns and tail” idea of the devil was an image early believers adopted IN ORDER TO MOCK HIM, AND PROCLAIM CHRISTS VICTORY OVER HIM! It was as if we are saying “Satan, you’re noting but a ridiculous joke!” enjoy your resurrection day celebration, and much success with the cartoon. I’m glad you liked it enough to download it!

    The idea of this picture is great, but I think its time out for us useing pictures such as this one to depict the devil. I only hope that Christians are explaning to their children what the devil really looks like, and he’s not red with horns. I really do get the picture i just wanted to add something for us to think about. This doesn’t take anything away from artist (awesome work).

      I hear what you’re saying and agree…to a point. No, he’s not really red with horns a pitchfork and a pointy tail. It’s a cultural icon, and if I remember my history this depiction of him was made up by believers in Chrst with the expressed intent of ridiculing him! Since he’s a culturally recognizable icon, I see no harm in using him. Also, as to what the devil”really looks like” who can say for certain? We can speculate, but the only thing we have even remotely close to a description is that he as the ability to disguise himself, even posing as an “angel of light!” if I drew him as an angel, that would be really confusing!

      I’m certain that astute teachers like yourself and others, can and do explain his true nature, at least to the extent that children can grasp. In actually, he’s a very terrifying figure I mean, he wants to kill, steal, and destroy, try getting THAT message over to children as you tuck them in at night!

      Images are tricky things. Us artists do the best we can with the info we have available. Hopefully kniw some wont, which is OK too.

      One last thing. There are cultural depictions on how Jesus looks also. The prevailing image gives him long light brown sandy hair, and beard, blue eyes, wearing a white robe with a blue sash.

      Being a middle Eastern Jew, Christ probably doesn’t look like the culturally accepted icon. And yet, there’s no outcry there.

      Please don’t think I’m being combative, or that I’m trying to defend my position. I have no ax to grind, really. Thanks so much for your comment!

        I agree with Wanda that this ridiculous image of the devil really shouldn’t be promoted by believers. Whatever the origin, the devil isn’t a figure of ridicule; he’s dangerous and manipulative and he uses the media to his own ends – obviously one of which is distorting his own image.

        Nah. What harm could there be in that?

        *sigh*

    I absolutely love the posters that I’ve seen so far and hope to see more. The color is vibrant, and as far as being too graphic, I think “graphic” and “to-the-point” is in order for older elementary kids today (with everything in biblical order, of course). Kids are looking for truth; colorful cartoons grab their attention, and truthful cartoons, I believe, can help us as teachers hit the mark. My prayer every week, since the children I minister to do not come consistently, is that whatever I say and present to them will stick in their spirits and aid their spiritual growth in the future. I never know if I’ll see some of these kids again, and these posters will help the lessons become more memorable. Thank you for this resource!

    This is an excellent idea.I like this.I would put a scripture at the bottom saying-He is not there,He is alive also the devil is defeated.
    Amen

    I came  up with the idea for this picture after reading the passage found in 
    1 CORINTHIANS 2 :7,8
    But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory
    Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

    We know the princes of this world were influenced by, and doing the bidding of Satan. Jesus said that Satan, the thief, coes to steal , kill, and destroy which he undoubtedly thought he ad done by crucifying the son of God. I always imagined him having one of those forehead slapping “WHAT HAVE I DONE????!!!” moments at the empty tomb.
