My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
The Love of God was introduced to me by mo precious Mother. I resisted but saw the blessings on her life and how she blessed me. Then in 1986 I saw genuine Christian TV and needed too know if what was being taught was really in the Bible. I purchased one and watched the same teacher the following week on Sunday morning. The Love and liberty of the Bible became real to me when I saw it for myself in the scriptures from that TV minister. When he came close enough to NYC I made my way to the convention center he went to and gave my life to the Lord at the first meeting's alter call.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
God has already blessed me with the fulfillment of this dream. When I was 17 years old I was hired by my childhood hero artist, Neal Adams. I worked for Neal for many years both freelance and full time. And now i am the Creative Director of Character Design for Sesame Street!
Favorite Comic Creators:
Neal Adams, Denny O'Neil, Alex Toth, Frank Frazetta, Jack Davis... mostly Silver Age, but I do look at the current books and plan to become a regular contributor again.

Welcome to the CCAS. Thank you for sharing your testimony. To have worked for Neal Adams and to currently with Sesame Street is just amazing!!! A kniw a CCAS member that LOVES Neal Adams. May our gracious Lord and Savior continue to richly bless you, your family, and the works of your hands.
Ok...Kings Highway!!! My aunt used to reside in that area when I was a kid. I know exactly what you mean going all over the place with friends LOL!!!! I used to walk from my house all the way to Church avenue to catch a movie at kenwood theatre (I think that was the name...I know they tore it down years ago though). I appreciate the feed back and will definitely keep you posted. The inside IS CGI as well...the first issue is already completed and submitted. My goal is to complete 3 issues for the program which coincides with the lessons from the curriculum. There are 6 lessons and I will build stories around 2 for each issue. Here's my personal email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don't mind, drop me a line and I would like to discuss with you some other kingdom ideas I have involving comics. God Bless you, and looking forward to talking more!
WOW! This is crazy...I lived in East Flatbush, just up from the junction off Glenwood Rd!!! My parents are still there, as I left home and ended up in Tennessee by way of the military (currently National Guard). Like you, I can't leave TN as Father has led me to an AWESOME ministry where I am the assistant pastor. Man, it's truly a small world we live in! I would truly like for us to speak more if it's ok. I am currently a police officer that teaches the G.R.E.A.T. program, which encourages kids to avoid gangs and violence...coming from Brooklyn I'm sure your familiar (DARE / GREAT). I just completed the first ever comic book that has recently been accepted by the organization, and will soon be on their website. The covers for the first 2 issues are posted on CCAS. You can check them under my profile when you get a chance. I would truly like your opinion on the covers, as they are my first ever. I truly believe the Lord has called me to comics and has opened this window of opportunity to reach kids as confirmation and I am very excited about it.
