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...
Well I'm an animator as well. It's actually how I got my start in the mid 90's so I understand your sentiment. But sadly I can't share most of my seqs as they're from books I've yet to publish & I hate spoilers so I just share conceptual & sketchbook stuff. But trust me till then...I'm a way better story teller than renderer as I began as a tweener & storyboarder. But thanx for the interest bruh!
Cedric Hohnstadt noted your "Can A Shy Person Make It In The Arts?" blog post on Twitter. Thought you shared some great insights. I re-tweeted it and have added you to the International Animation Links list on our ANIMAX35 site:
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."
I showed my wife and a friend the clip and they were speechless. "A real God and a real hell." "I am running out of time." When we look at our life compared to eternity, we are all running out of time. I am definitely going to send some more people to your site. By the way, I love your sketches. You do excellent work and I pray that the Lord continue to bless you and your family
I just saw the ER segment you posted on your blog site. That was AMAZING!!! It didn't beat around the bush about our need find reconciliation with God, but not on our terms. That to really know God we must approach Him on His terms. I have been inspired by that clip. Thank you so much for posting.
