I have a background in graphic design, traditional painting, drawing, sculpting, story boarding, as well as a digital background with some knowledge of web design and development and animation.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I came to know the Lord when I was 13 years old. An evangelical church started, next door to my house, in Plainfield, NJ. I went in on a Sunday and accepted the Jesus the Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. It was unbelievable (Miraculous) how things turned around. See, my parents, family members, nor many of my friends were believers (Born Again). My parents didn't attend church but by the next year, I was no longer in public school, I was attending a Christian School, and being bused across town. My mother actually worked with a member of the church, I had been attending, who suggested I attend Timothy Christian. To make things short My father in about another years time came to the Lord, then my mother, my Uncle (Who's in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame), and eventually my two older sisters.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
I always wanted to work for Disney as an animator, I also wanted to be a comic book artist. I grew up reading Marvel & DC comics as a kid. Now I currently own my own Design (Art) Company - which I want to grow.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Jack Kirby, I was a big Frank Frazetta fan, I loved the work of Caravaggio, Neal Adams, Steve Ditko, Jim Lee, Todd McMarlane, Kim Jung Gi, and finally though not a comic guy per say - I love Feng Zhu - his work is amazing.
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...
Welcome to the CCAS. Your work is excellent. There are may gifted brothers and sisters on this site. May the God of our Savior, Jesus Christ, richly bless you, your family, and the works of your hands. And I, too, am looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Hey John, welcome to CCAS! You've got some amazing artwork. The shading is phenominal and the subtle attention to detail, just wow. I'm currently working on an animated superhero drama and I'm always looking for more artists to join the team and lend their skills to the project. If you're interested you can learn more at www.redemptiontheseries.com and if you have any questions or want to learn more about the project before making a decision please don't hesitate to ask.
In either case, I look forward to seeing more of your work. God bless!
