Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
I am a talented networker and public speaker, but still progressing in my passions as a writer, and cartoonist. Ultimately, a lover of Marvel Superheroes, Star Wars, Star Trek, TMNT, and graphic novels and comic books in general who wants to change the world through individuals by calling them up into their God-given identities, and teaching them how to work together in unity as individuals, rather than conformity to Christianese clones.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
My priorities in life are: Freedom, independence, creativity, and fun. Now, how's that's all achieved can come down to deeper things such as wisdom, intelligence, and compassion, but...that's a whole 'nother story. XD
Either way, hey. My legitimate goals: I want to make art to make art. And I mean that metaphorically. Are you confused yet? ;)
We're all masterpieces, breathtaking expressions of the master artist. Judging art is stupid. It stands on it's own, as the expression of the individual. The thing is, it wont all be brought to completion until we're all up in heaven. In the meantime, though...creation reflects it's creator. And we should let the artist continue to create us...as well as allow him to work through us as his vessels to bring His other art pieces to completion.
It's working together in our individuality that creates the reality of unity that changes the world. It's in our differing strengths, weaknesses, and even preferences that we create the body of Christ. We are all different parts from different cultures, backgrounds, and experiences, but beautiful art pieces communicating God's glory. It's when we work together, rather than judge one another to conform to each other, that we become what God has made us to be, and bring the masterpiece to completion.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
An organization that creates art to create art. And I mean that metaphorically. Are you confused yet? XD
