I specialize in graphite portraits thus I try to incorporate much of this skill in my comics.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I grew up in a practicing Christian home. One where we were the same at home as we were at church and bible study. I've been an artist for years and have had an interest in comics since I was about 8. I gave up this dream for a more "practical" art career but recently, as I've been growing at a new church, God has brought this desire back to my heart heavily. Not once did I ever think I could use my skill or comics to spread the gospel yet here I am and I'm wishing I had never stopped, I love it so much.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
My dream job would be to sell my comics in stores nationwide, sharing the gospel and peaking the interest of not only those who are saved, but those who are unsaved as well.
Favorite Comic Creators:
First is John Goldwater, the creator of Archie Comics. They are what first sparked my interest in cartooning. Second is Aaron McGruder. Although rough around the edges, he definitely had a message which in a way, showed me I could have one too.
Your portfolio is impressive and your aim is spot on. May the Lord grant you the desires of his heart, and may we be a small part of getting you there. Look around the site, check out the art and discussion sections; be at home here.
