My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I have been a christian since I was 9 years old and I haven't looked back since. Everyday is an adventure, some much tougher than others, but I continually look forward to seeing what God has in store for my life. I just pray everyday that I am taking the correct steps in the right direction!
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Anything in the design field related to music & comics. Both would be amazing, but I would be happy to settle for just a small part of one!
Favorite Comic Creators:
Mike Mignola, Humberto Ramos, Kenneth Rocafort, Brian Bendis, Jason Alexander, Greg Capullo....and a handful of others.
Glad to hear that you are doing something that you are passionate about. I think Red Horizon sounds great. Keep at the writing though, lol. As far as my OGN, I am going to sit and write it out clearly and start to work on it in june/july. I am still under contract with the comic company and I am also writing and drawing a series of childrens books. So I am busy also.
Glad to hear from you Shawn, and I will keep you updated. I will also be adding more pics soon, so stay tuned.
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."
