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...
Happy Thanksgiving! I'm Scott A. Shuford, one of the new Board members. I wanted to stop in and say thanks for being involved with CCAS! If you have any input or would like to be involved with anything in particular, please let me and Eric Jansen (Membership Coordinator for CCAS) know by contacting us both through the site. We'll be making several announcements in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. To see a bit more about me, check out my profile here on the site. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.
Consider the words of C.S. Lewis:
"If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and to earnestly hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I suggest that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at sea. We are far too easily pleased."
Oops sorry I mixed Jim up with Jack Davis...yeah I meant Jack Davis. Man, I'm a doof!!!
Just read the story below and replace Jim with Jack. No offense Jim Davis.
Hey I see you have Jim Davis as a fav artist.
About 10 years ago I was working at a t-shirt company on a t-shirt design where a local college (in Asheville, NC) wanted to take one of JD's University of Georgia designs of a bulldog dunking a basketball and rip-it-off and put a different animal but same style. I told them no until someone called Jim Davis and got permission. Nobody would and I had a rep book out of New York of artists they represented and JD was one of them. I called NY and got on the phone with a Brooklyn boy and me with my southern drawl and explained my situation. The NY boy figured he wasn't going to make any money off the deal and gave me Jim Davis' phone number on Jekyll Island, GA. I called and dang if Jim Davis answered the phone. He was in his 70's, I assume, back then. He was THE nicest guy and he allowed me to use the style for nothing...but not before I goo-gooed and gah-gahed over what an inspiration he had been to me. (I need to go back and add him to my list if I didn't before). I remember getting on a pay-phone in Hotlanta and seeing the work he did for BellSouth, way back when...his art was all over the phone. Great guy!!!
