My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I was raised Christian, but the evils of the world caused me to go astray on a number of occasions. If it was not for my Christian mentor Angel Dominguez, who has been in my life since I was 9 years old, keeping me accountable for my sins I would be lost. He constantly was there every time I strayed away from the word of God. After years of being partially obedient to God, which is still disobedience, I decided to fully give my all to God at the age of 21, and I never looked back since.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Graphic Novelist, because it has been a life long dream, since I was 3 years old, to write and draw the stories that are in my head.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Takeshi Obata (Japanese comic book artist)
Pat Lee ( Canadian comic book artist)
J. Michael Straczynski (Comic book writer)
Ha, ha. yeah, thanks man. i do okay with the pencils and the inks... but coloring is not my area. i like colors, i just don't like to spend hours and hours and hours scrubbing them on paper... i think next go around i'll try black and white. i'm practicing though, and that says something.
Welcome to the CCAS. Glad to have you with us. If you have any examples of your work, you should definitely post it. May the God of our Savior, Jesus Christ, richly bless you and the works of your hands.
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."
