A Servant Who Becomes King | Laura Kranz

For every line in Proverbs chapter 30, I’ve made a drawing. The series is creatively titled Proverbs 30 Art Series.

This drawing, A Servant Who Becomes King, is the 32nd of what will probably end up being 48 drawings in total.

It’s based on the first line of the following verse:

Proverbs 30:22

a servant who becomes king,
a godless fool who gets plenty to eat …

In this verse, the word “servant” is also often translated “slave.” I drew a weary, emaciated figure to imply low social status.
