My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
*I was born to stand-out, which in a child's mindset means your a Freak/Oddball. Praise God for my family, who accepted me as the eccentric artistic child I still am, but it felt like everyone else in my little world was against me; specifically in church & school. With that negative self-image on my belt that swelled up in my mind the following years of being reminded of it, high school to early collage was the darkest time of my life. I struggled with depression and wore it on my black gothic sleeve. I played with witchcraft, divination & even demonology, if you think about it in a spiritual perspective. I did all this while I still physically attended a spiritually-numb church. My AHA! moment wasn't far behind when my family began to attend a new church, then later lead to attend an Acquire the Fire youth conference in 2005. It was then I choose to serve at Teen Mania Ministries, Hopped on a plane to Texas and lived there for 2 years to work in the awesome media dept. called 'Center for Creative Media'. Everything radically changed from there!
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Concerning the comic industry, my small ambition in this area is to write, illustrate and produce my own graphic novels. This will possibly be a side project off my main ambition to illustrate for story and visual development in animated films.
Favorite Comic Creators:
I was raised with DC & Marvel comics. Honestly, just been raised, not read. The only comic I remember reading was the very short Marvel comic series on Wolverine's daughter 'Wild Thing'. Only 5 issues were published and I got all 5.

Hi ya, I know you like Christian comics so I know you'll love The Word for WORD Bible Comic(Unabridged, historically accurate graphic novel of the Bible with a high view of scripture. For ages 15+) 

To complete the first book I need your help, as I am raising funds on Kickstarter. My passion is to get God's Word in full into the hands of young believer and unbelievers and comic lovers of all ages, in the hope they will come to really know God. Please check it out at the KS page, it's going well but I still need lots of backers so I hope as a CCAS member you'll please pledge to support this project...

If you are concerned about the accuracy and faithfulness to the text please read this Blog...

Wow Elena,

You're interesting. There's a story there. I'm going through a tough time right now but I know God is with me. I'm enrolled in the art institute of pittsburgh for animation. I want to do cartoons like Genndy Tartakovsky. Samurai Jack, Dexter's Lab., Symbionic Titan. I love his stuff. I've got a few titles that I'm working on now and some kids books. Hope to get them done soon. Glad you're here.
