Quit my job last week

Good morning,



Been a long time since I've been to this site. As the title of my post states,. I quit my job last week.



It was a long time coming. Where I worked was merging departments, and eliminating positions, and no one was safe even though people were told repeatedly that no one was losing their job. After a lot of prayer and scripture bring returned to me regarding standing up to liars, greed, etc, and to be bold (Joshua 1:9), I decided to end my career and pursue my… Continue

Jesus is calling

“Jesus is calling.”

   I have a deep love-link to Jesus which leads to an emotional jolt every time I hear his name.  I’ve had to control my reactions over the decades of teaching teens in the Latino culture, whose parents have honored their sons with biblical names, including Jesus. It helps me to give Jesus the Spanish pronunciation, ‘Hey-sus’ but over the years these blessed students respond to either pronunciation.  I’ve had to get used to exhorting Jesus to do homework more…

Hey, I'm drawing a broken mirror, which I've never done before. 

Does anybody have advice?

Survey for Independent Creators

Hey All,

I thought it would be fun (and helpful) to shoot a survey out there to all the other independent creators.

If you have independently published a comic book, take a moment to answer the questions below!

1. What are the titles of the comics you've published?

2. How long have you been self publishing?

3. What is your biggest challenge as an independent creator?

4. What are some mistakes you've learned…

2017 New York Comic Con...

It's that time of year again. My mailbox gave me my free Professional's Badge to the New York Comic Con. I've been getting one of these each year and have been attending the con since 2006. The Lord our God continues to bless me with a wonderful career. …

Got me two-hundred plus more pages to go.

Making fixes to AN ACT OF FAITH: THE SWORD OF EDEN is time-consuming! Got me two-hundred plus more pages to go.



As previously noted, in the panel on the left, I gave Gloomtooth a more traditional-looking thought balloon. Before now, I think that I was lazy with my creating thought balloons.



The panel on the right was completely redrawn. I was not happy with the original panel. In Rebecca’s word balloon, I changed (the original version's…

Art Genre

Hello, everyone. Here's another question:

What is your favorite art style to do? 

(Sci fi, realistic, manga, abstract...Everything counts.)

I need Sunday School advice

I can't find a better place to post this, but I need advice pretty soon. I'm teaching Sunday School to a class of kids roughly 1st-6th grade age (I go to a very small church) This Sunday. The lesson is about sacrificial love, and I like to plan my own lessons. I've been reading about how we need to talk about the crucifixion and resurrection other times than just at Easter, and I thought this would be a good opportunity (the curriculum we're using has several Bible story suggestions for each… Continue

Cartoon Drawings

I am about to go back to figure drawing, as well as a painting class. So, really, I should be reviewing anatomy and things like that. But what I did instead was check out 30 comic book collections from the library and am drawing pictures from there. :) Working with charcoal is a great way to learn anatomy, but after months of it, I really love working with my Prismacolor colored pencils.
