My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
Faith in God thru Jesus enables me to do comics writing & illustration, as it says in the bible ...I can do all things in Christ Jesus which strenghtens me.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
i hope that someday i could finish all 7 chapters of the comic i made, and be able to find a publisher that would be willing to publish my work, and after that if God wills I will make more pertaining to salvation (a story) and also childrens book stories, and also to become an accomplished artist in comics and painting world...but for now i have to make it one step at a time base on daily phasing because i too have a day job for which to provide my wife and my kid and family.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Larry Alcala, Nestor Redondo, Tony DeZuniga, Gerry Alanguilan, Arnold Arre, Charles Schulz, Frank Miller, Mark Millar, Paul Pope, Allan Moore, Daniel Craig, Scott Mcloud, & Shel Silverstein.
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...
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."
Bless you in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Welcome to the CCAS. You will find some very gifted brothers and sisters in the Lord on this site. If you have any samples of your work, I would encourage to post them. I pray that you make some wonderful connections here. God bless you, your household and the works of your hands.
