Honorable Mention: 2023 BYU Book of Mormon Art Contest: Makayla Erickson

“A Cartoon Retelling of the Book of Mormon” by Makayla Erickson received an honorable mention in our BYU Book of Mormon Art Contest.

Erickson, a pre-animation major, was inspired by 1st and 2nd Nephi. She says, “I made this art for my Book of Mormon class, highlighting concepts and stories detailed in the first 30-ish chapters of scripture. I drew this on my iPad and drew inspiration from several other cartoonists whose work I admire. My greatest hope in doing this project was that it could make the often esoteric text of the Book of Mormon more accessible to a general audience, particularly children.”
