Profile Information

Las Vegas (originally from Hawaii)
Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
I began with comic art and blend it with traditional techniques found in classical art such as the works of Caravaggio. Chiaroscuro is my preferred method, utilizing light and shade for dramatic effect.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I've always believed in God but didn't really understand who Christ was until 11. I was taught to seek God diligently through His word and as I've grown both spiritually and artistically, I've merged the two more and more. The greatest expression of art and its highest calling is to edify the Body of Christ and lift up God...the original Artist.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
I would love to work in illustration. Although comic books have contributed vastly to the way I draw today, I'm honestly not sure if comic art is for me as a career. I do enjoy rendering well-loved stories from the scriptures giving life and emotion to the characters thousands know and love so well the world over.
Favorite Comic Creators:
I follow the art of Olivier Coipel, Carlos Pacheco, Jim Lee, Adam Hughes, Arthur Adams, Simone Bianchi, Neal Adams, Stuart Immonen, Jerome Opena. Also, Caravaggio and Leonardo DaVinci and other Renaissance greats.

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...

PS - Please add me as a friend here on CCAS

HI Kawika,

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,

Scott A. Shuford
CCAS Board Member 2008-2010

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."
