Gender
Female
Website:
http://www.releasearts.artistswebsite.com
Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
Currently a student at the Academy of Art University, School of Illustration, Adept in character design, perspective, layout, portraits, writing and humility.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I had a steady full time job, was going to school part time and merely dreaming of what I would do when I finished with my degree (which will be a while since I'm only able to take two classes a semester). The application of my art skills being able to support me financially seemed to be a distant dream no more real than a fantasy encounter with your favorite celebrity. Slowly my job became more stressful and I became more and more restless. I was unhappy, uncertain and itching for a drastic change, but past experiences and past mistakes made me hesitant to jump without God's leading. I spent several months in prayer until it came down to the wire, I prayed for a sign to ensure that what was rolling in my mind was for certain God's intended path. Literally over night my anxiety dissolved, I was confident in my decision and at peace with uncertainty it would cause. I gave my boss my 3 weeks notice, trained a replacement and said good bye to my safe secure, full time income.

I can't say that things have been easy, in fact they've been quite the opposite. Everyday is full of worries, doubts and fears that I have to lay at His feet in faith. I do not now, nor will I ever regret my insane decision. I know some may never understand my "God told me to quite my job" story, but I know it's been His will and I lean on His promise to guide and protect me. I can only hope that He has a mighty plan for my feeble attempts and pray that He will be glorified threw what I do next.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
I would love to one day write and draw the comic books that God has placed on my heart and mind.
Favorite Comic Creators:
I suppose it's cliche but Stan Lee.

BLAH!

Posted on April 3, 2014 at 10:09am 4 Comments

Prayers Please: I've been feeling kinda "blah". I don't know if it's stress, lack of time, or just me, but I feel unmotivated, lost and unsure of where to go and what to do next.

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...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/word4wordbiblecomic/the-word-for-word-bible-comic-100-pg-graphic-novel

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

Hey, there! I just read your testimony. I also quit my nine-to-five, but to be a musician. I can definitely sympathize with your decision and situation. God bless your artistic career and I'll pray for you!

Ma'am, hello there. If you want a little job, please draw me a 'Raegan and RJ in Space!' picture or sketch, e-mail it to me at ranger5xrmc@aol.com and I will purchase it and send you $30 by certified mail that day. Go to my web site for ideas. You can do pencil, computer, whatever. The web site is http://www.raeganandrjinspace.com where my Christian space story is. I will post your work in the 'amazing art' section with your name on it for kids all over the world to enjoy. God Bless. Rich Collins
