Discipleship by messenging

Posted on December 17, 2019 at 10:27am 0 Comments

Maybe a lot of you do regular fellowship-by-messaging and don't talk about it, but whoa, doing this for a couple of months has been a joy and novelty for me.

The problem it solves is a common one: I was talking with a Christian bro of mine, a quality guy, about how "we should get together more often.” I followed this comment with a wry chuckle; because we’re miles apart in our separate work-family worlds and we could barely manage to meet once a month. When he mentioned that we were…

Atomic Robo Webcomic

Posted on October 23, 2019 at 2:02pm 0 Comments

Atomic Robo Webcomic  http://www.atomic-robo.com/index.php?id=13

Scott Wegener and Brian Clevinger started creating Atomic Robo back in 2007. The comic has great writing and deep character development with a creative Fifties flavor. But for me this is really a go-to comic when I want to draw action figures. It’s tough to describe the art style…chiseled?...but it is so much easier to study action poses on Atomic…

Designing a GospelTract

Posted on October 18, 2019 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

In 2006 illustrator Cedric Hohnstadt created the Gospel tract, "Are you a good person?" based on a presentation by evangelist Ray Comfort.  The design is colorful, eye catching; and the economy of words and line are a thing of beauty.  The site found here: https://www.freecartoontract.com/  ; also demonstrates tracts as a cheap way to get your…

Thank you so much for the warm welcome!

Mr. Brien,

     Thanks so much! I looked at the Collaboration forum, and it seemed that it was pretty sparsely populated. I am really interested in finding someone who would be able to bring my comic book series to reality, so I'll give it a shot.

Thank you so much, Brien. I just keep chipping away at it. I’m working on the 3rd of 10 commandment comic books. Those comics I posted on here are one page comics based on a scripture. I create those for churches to use in their children’s curriculum.

Thanks Brien,  I like print comics rather than digital since I like to donate them after I read them.  I have purchased superhero and science fiction comics like Batgirl , Captain Marvel, and Blade Runner 2019 from my local comic store and was looking to see what kind of Christian worldview comics there were and did not know if any were sold in regular comic shops.  My local comic shop sells items from the Diamond distributor.

I "sorta" worked it out……I tried an entirely different file, so the problem was in the original file itself, apparently, and I cannot figure out what it is (I'm usually pretty good at "work-arounds").

Anyway: thanks for replying!

Hey, Brien:

I'm trying to upload a photo for my Profile avatar. It's 1.8 Mb, a Photoshop CS1 jpeg, but I keep getting an error. If there's a better place or forum/discussion to ask this question, please re-direct me (I couldn't find a "troubleshooting" forum).

Thanks

Thanks for accepting me as a member, and for the compliment on my design poster. The photo was taken by my best and oldest friend in the world, whom I've known since 6th Grade: Kevin Parks……also a believer, a designer and illustrator.

Thank you, Brien! I appreciate the warm welcome and feedback about my art page.

How come you didn't respond to my emails about how I am interested and how I want to move forward?
