Looking for a poster of Jesus
April 9, 2008 7:43 PM   Subscribe

A while ago, I went into a Christian bookstore and saw a poster/reprinted painting of Jesus dressed in a very colorful coat and he had a really big smile and was possibly laughing. From what I remember, the picture showed the whole body of Jesus as opposed to just his face - can anyone help me find this image? There's a best answer in it for the winner :)

BTW - The basic Google search yielded some fine pictures, but not the one I was searching for.

the "colorful coat" makes me think it wasn't actually Jesus... it might have been Joseph (not Jesus' dad, but the one in the old testament), who had an awesome coat.

True that - I'll take answers that have Joseph in it also (even though I think it was still Jesus)

@kuujjuarapik: Stylistically, it is very similar to this one but I remember it being more bright and the person being a lot happier.

@Sassyfras: sorry, thanks for trying though!

what's the time frame we're looking at here? When did you see this painting?

I saw it roughly 2 to 4 years ago...

Um... Buddy Christ?

Buddy Christ was what sprang to my mind also.

I'm stumped. I'd suggest calling said Christian store and asking them. Perhaps it was from a local artist.
