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...

Hey JC, here's that pic that is long over due. I tried to send it before, but not sure it went thru. well just in case, here it is again:
Thanks for the praises on my works :) I guess what SLOWS me down, is family -but I dont mean that in a negative way. Since accepting jesus into my heart my world had gone fast forward a bit. I just celebrated my 2nd marriage anniversary with my beautiful wife and we both have been blessed last december with a baby girl. I also have a 4yr old stepson, work 2 jobs, and just trying our best to deal with the trails of life. Sooo, i dont wana make it sound like I cannot get anything done, just got my hands really full-HAHA! I have prayed for more time to bring forth my spiritual gift and the lord has given way. My wife is going back to work to help with the bills. While she works at night i work the day. My excitement is the fact after i get the kids off to bed i will have maybe an hour or 2 before bed to doing some drawing and brainstorming. So its only a matter of time now. That's another good reason why I want to draw your character too. I need something fresh and new to get the wheels turning again.
As for my comic type? Still in the works, but I have two good stories I can use that i have had over a few years now. I've just been revamping them to be more
in the word and light of the lord. Cowboy is one of them I want to do, but keeping the details under wraps for now. I will share them once I get things together. If you would like to see more pics, i have a link to my blog on my CCAS page. Or just click here if it will work, otherwise just copy and paste:
Some pics on CCAS are from this blog.
Well thats all for now, ttyl.
May you have a blessed day and night.
My name is Bert and I dig the concept designs!
Your last disciple intriges me. As i read your profile, testimony, etc...i was thinking to myself, here's a guy whose shares the same idea as me. Difference is that you have gained a lot more published ground than I ever have, as matter a fact I never published anything. But since accepting Jesus as my lord and savior into my heart I too have continued to search for comics holding the value of christianity. And I too, have become overwhelmingly disappointed as you. So I decided to do that same. Create my own christian comics as well. My hopes are to reach out to young kids, teenagers, and the like what a blessing it can be to have hope, faith, and love in a life given to you by the sacriface of our lord and savior Jesus Christ.
We have the similiar influences and both agree that christian comics need to be reaching out to a larger audience with a bit more down to earth tones w/o the sexuality, gore, and ungodlyness that most main comics roll with these days just to make the sales. But I agree, christian comics should not just be based on characters with halo's, doves, and sunshine either.
I believe a graphic novel would suit me better than a comic book. I am more of a start to finish kinda of guy, that creates stories with a beginning, middle, and end. The on going series thing doesn't work for me. Lot of failed attempts. I just end up losing focus, than interest and eventually my project remained unfinished. Anyway, enough of my flaws. I was wondering if you would mined me drawing a pic of your character the last disciple in my style?
Also if i can post it here on CCAS. I will give you the mad credits of creator and state that I am solely just posting fanart.
Let me know and thanks for inviting me to be your friend here on CCAS.

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."
