Which Category best describes you?
Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
I do a TON of writing. I write blogs, ads, emails, posts, videos, bios like this, but I also want to write poetry and music eventually.
I do voice-overs and I know how to use editing soft-ware for my videos. I even like to make funny edits when I have the time. Here is an example:
Here is my main YouTube channel, where I post time lapses and voice-overs:
I mainly talk about Christian stuff and how my art relates to the biblical theme that I'm talking about. I do post other things, too, occasionally.
I also do art, of course. I can do digital art, sketching, but my main area of expertise is acrylic painting.
My acrylic paintings are kind of an abstract, impressionism, free-style hybrid. I like to give my people in the paintings blue, purple, or pink skin. I'll sometimes use other colors, too. But those colors are my favorite . I also can't forget to add flowers, nature, and other greenery. You can check out my paintings here:
I don't paint what I see and feel. I mainly paint to symbolize a biblical subject in a pretty abstract way. For example, in one of my latest series, I painted people that were broken and being held together by gold. It's supposed to represent kintsugi. I was making the comparison between mending pottery with gold and how Jesus fixes us. I made an entire blog post about it, which you can read about here:
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I was a pretty lukewarm christian before I went to a particular church ( I go into more detail here: https://ctartistrychristianart.weebly.com/art-blog/why-i-like-forgiven-church )
But long story, short, I learned about why I'm here, what kind of calling I have, and how God wanted me to use my abilities. And now, I'm currently writing blogs, videos and creating art for Jesus. I'm also becoming a better Christian everyday.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Honestly, I wanna make my own comic. I wanna make the panels, plan everything out, do the writing, ect. I have a lot of ideas and I don't want to wait until I get a full team or until I become “acceptable” in the industry. Especially since the internet exists.
Favorite Comic Creators:
I like Jim Davis, not only because “Garfield” was my childhood, but because he knows what people want. He's honest and he can be funny when he wants to be. He's also cool with people talking about his properties and making parodies of his stuff.
I like Stan Lee, of course. I don't necessarily read marvel comics, but I like the guy. He was a trendsetter and set a new standard for comics. He was thoughtful about the things he writes and designs, he had spunk, and he was overall a cool guy.
I also like cubmoth on Twitter. They have short, simple, and cute comics that has absurdist humour. I like her random and charming personality. She has that sense of humour that very few people appreciate or like.
Hi Charissa. Thanks for getting back. I've never tried acrylics on watercolour paper. I usually use gouache & sometimes add coloured pencils or inks. GOD bless
Welcome to the CCAS. Thank you for posting samples of your illustrations. They are wonderful. May our gracious Lord and Savior richly bless you and the works of your hands.
Hi!!!! I'm Yoshi! Welcome to the site!
Hi Charrisa, Welcome to the CCAS site! An error in your posted address for your CT Artistry site (http//: is duplicated ) made it hard to find your site, but when I did find it, it was very well put together. I poked through a couple of your blog entrees, it was fun to read your thoughts and artistic journey, well referenced with scripture.
CCAS has a mirror site on facebook; if you haven't already posted there, posting there as well as here will give you more exposure. Welcome aboard.
