The concept of Ascribing Artists began in April of 2002, when the Lord placed the idea upon the heart of Paul LaBathe. It was during a time when he was reading through the Psalms seeking whether or not he should pursue his advertising business, Empty Tomb Graphics, full-time.

The name and logo came together rather quickly, but the Lord's process of defining Ascribing Artists continued over several more years. In 2008, the Lord's vision came to fruition. In the Lord's timing, He has brought together the people and opened the doors for Ascribing Artists to Glorify Him and none other.
