Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
Theology, Eschatology, Science Fiction (I'm a geek), Space battles, Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, etc, etc...
Animation, 2D, still learning 3D, illustration, graphic design, Adobe Creative Suite, etc...
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
God instantly healed me from asthma when I was a young child. I did not grow out of it. I had asthma one day, went to a revival service, received prayer and the Spirit went through me and the next day I no longer had asthma. Apart from that God has been patient and merciful with me as I am the furthest thing from perfect. My three great passions are storytelling/comics/animation, teaching others and technology.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Owning my own two companies which I am attempting to build upon:
GoodSoldier Entertainment - At the moment an aspiring webcomic studio I'm hoping to build with my best friend. We're in this with the hopes of transitioning into 2D and 3D animation and possibly film. We're working on two stories, Steel in the Darkness and Last Kingdom.
Steel in the Darkness is an imaginative gritty sci-fi storyline that metaphors some fundamental principles of Christianity. It deals with memes such as genetic manipulation, man seeking godhood through his own methods, good vs evil, reliance on God in times of trouble, etc.
Last Kingdom is a story that covers a none pretribulation rapture view of the end times while incorporating a variety of topics we've researched ranging from what many would call conspiracies to dealing with the supernatural. It's a Christian version of X-files, Fringe and Supernatural all bottled up into how some of these things such as UFO sightings, ghost, aliens, ancient technology, global conspiracies, etc can and may be leading up to the final tribulation of the world.
SteelDrama Studios - a company I'm building with my wife. It will house all projects that are not a part of GoodSoldier Entertainment. So far the projects that will be available soon are World End and Young Arrows.
World End is not specifically a Christian story, but will have Christian characters properly represented as opposed to those we usually see on television. However, World End is somewhat of a zombie-survival story. However, since this story takes great inspiration from the Resident Evil franchise, these zombies are much more than reanimated flesh.
Young Arrows will deal with deception at first in that it finds inspiration in Isaiah 5:20. I don't want to give a lot away, but by the height of this story readers should be excited to see a world where God can use anyone to achieve His goals.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Marvel and DC so far. Although I have not read much in the last few years, in the past I have enjoyed Superman, Hulk, X-Men, Avengers, Fantastic Four, Batman, and Justice League of America/Justice Society of America.

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...

Hello fellow artist,
I am launching an online relationship cards business and need cartoonist, and/or illustrators. I put up a website recently but it is still under construction and I am not accepting orders at this time; however, if you are interested in considering becoming an artist or illustrator for my company, please go to my website. Your art must be at least up the good quality of my current artist but I need more than one artist. Thanks. Please let me know you opinion.
Welcome Brother Roy! Thank you for your friend request :D It was nice to read your testimony - it is not just interesting but made me realise that I also have similar ideas about stories you make. I'm personally into Steam Punk, the way to represent spiritual fight visually & effectively etc :) Wish God bless you with amazing stories and His secrets. Also wish you His blessing with your business too! Y
Hello, Mr. Whitaker! Welcome to CCAS! May God bless you and the work you are doing. :)
