My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
Came to Jesus in 1986, got caught up in trying to "make it" as an artist and drifted far from the Lord. In 1997, I became convicted of my idolatry toward my work and quit art saying I would never pick it up again unless I was doing it for the Lord. In that time I got my call to the ministry and the Lord repaired my marriage and family. eventually I became involved in your ministry and was seeking ways to really make my teaching "stick." One night as I was listening to a program at church I heard 1 Peter 4:10 "each one should use whatever gifts he has received to serve others." At that point I had my answer I would use art to serve the Lord in preaching teaching and reaching. Everything I am doing today in ministry has come as a result of that.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Traveling the world using art to spread the Gospel and encouraging other artists to do the same.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Mainly Disney, Sunday comics guys and Eastman and Laird

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...

If you are concerned about the accuracy and faithfulness to the text please read this Blog...

HI Dave,

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.


At Your Service,

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."

Glory to God. One day I was praying and I got that image. I knew I wanted to combine art and video and that image was the perfect image to start with. It was simple enough that I could learn all the tech stuff and yet I really feel like God anointed it. I can't wait to get the next one up. It's almost done. I reworked one of my favorite pieces for a video. It's called Dichotomy. There'll probably be a few less cartoons from me for a little while as I explore what God is doing in this video realm. There are a couple of people doing this kind of thing. If you like my stuff go to youtube and check out Charlene Rice. Seeing her work is part of what inspired me to try it. She's GOOOOOD!

You Can't Kill Love is awesome. It's incredible how God is glorified in the arts.

Thanks Joe,
I appreciate your kind words. It's amazing what you can get out of a sharpie, lol. The way I work drives a cartoonist friend of mine crazy, he prefers to ink with a brush and an ink well. I actually vary the line weights of my cartoons by drawing lines and filling in the space between. It's a little more time consuming but I can ink anywhere with no mess. I've inked on a plane, in a restaurant... etc. I just always carry a sketch book a non-repro blue pencil and a sharpie. by the way if you want to see a different side of my cartoon work go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgqLmKbkXp8
