I'm asking these questions here because I could not find the answers on this website or anywhere else.How long has this site been around? When exactly was it created?I would have joined along time…Continue
I love drawing, reading, and writing. My fave genres to read are fantasy, and thriller. But I read chick-lit, historic, suspense, and romance novels too. I draw in manga-style, which are the only type of comics I read.
I've been drawing since I was small, and been drawing in manga-style for about nine years.
I have been studying the Japanese language for awhile and have a strong interest in that culture.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I was born in a christian family, the middle daughter out of three girls. I never thought I was different, even though I was home-schooled and brought up in the church. I listened to Christian music and even read Christian fiction as a kid. I guess I was obedient.
I read my Bible straight through for the first time when I was 16 (before then, I had rarely read it). During that time I decided I wanted to follow Christ for myself, and not for my parents. There was no lightning, no dramatic moment. Things just clicked and everything about Jesus and God made sense to me. The world had it wrong, and everything proved that. Not long after that I began daydreaming of stories to write. I'm rather a shy person, and telling stories seems like such a good way to witness to others.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Manga-ka= an author and writer of comics, or perhaps and editor. I would adore any job involving a Christian publisher just to start. I would especially love to review christian comics and novels.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Takahashi Kazuki of "Yugioh"
Kishimoto Masashi of "Naruto"
Kubo Tite of "Bleach"
Disney Italy of "Witch"
Bisco Hatori of "Ouran Hight Host Club"
Arakawa Hiromu of "Full Metal Alchemist"
Sugisaki Yukiru of "DNAngel"
I mainly like Shonen (boys) manga, because Shoujo (girls) manga tends to be immoral, as they are usually revolve around sex unless they are for a younger age. And some are very explict in their support for homosexuals. Shonen characters on the other hand, have a very strong sense of justice, and want to protect those they love. :)
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...
Haha, hello there fellow christian homeschooler. :) Your art is awesome! Wish I could say I stayed on track my whole life like you did, but I do have to say I think we have a lot in common! ^_^ (If only I could draw better...:P)
Many thanks for your kind comments on my artwork! I did the greengirl in watercolor pencil before I saw the production of "Wicked." Your own work is very good. I can see the Yugioh influence. You must like Shonenjump as well? Have you seen the early paintings of big eyed children and animals from a few years back? I hope to have more items posted soon.
All Best Wishes. mj
