I write and draw my own comic books, children's books, coloring books, greeting cards, and various other things. I use my MacBook laptop a lot for writing.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I have been given great blessings, mercy and grace in my life time from God. I desire to help people know that God loves them because He does. I do a lot of this by just being friends with a person as best as I can. I'm not perfect for sure but I try to just let a person be themselves with me and I've found in doing that a person learns that I accept them as they are. This opens up communication for me to be who I am as well. I desire to give much respect to everyone I know so that the door to converse is as open as it can be. This has worked for me so far so I'll keep it up.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Drawing and writing comics with my kids and having fun.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Kurt Busiek, Alex Ross, Brent Anderson, George Perez, Mark Waid, Robert Kirkman.
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...
Thanks for the welcome Gary! I just still amazed that a networking site like this exists! I'm on the hunt for an artist to draw some characters I've been developing for a while now, which is why I joined. haha you've got some great taste in comicdom by the way.
Hi Gary, Thanks for the welcome. Looks like you have a beautiful family. Hopefully I'll be able to build up my page before long. Right now, hard to find time. Every blessing to you! Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the welcome, Gary. I look forward to learning from other folks who have some experience with doing webcomics, as previously I've only done my stories in written form. I'm waiting to get a tablet and then I plan to begin making a buffer before actually putting up a site. I owe a lot to Matt Guigar and the other guys who wrote "How To Make Webcomics" for showing me the possibilities for sharing my stories through this medium. Up to now my self-published books never went anywhere and I wondered why God gave me a talent for drawing that seemed destined to be wasted. I hope my efforts once the comic gets started will in some way justify the talents He gave me.
