Show me your Jesus piece!

The Lost

This is a photo-montage that was part of one of my final projects for my Art Appreciation class.  I really liked that class because, rather than just making me appreciate art, it made me find a new appreciation for Christ, and a new way to express that appreciation.  This montage includes photos of the comic I was working on before coming to Christ, Captive, as well as art work completed after finding Christ.  I finished it up with clips of an alcoholic, some happy pills, some nails, and a crown of thorns to represent where I was and what was done for me through Christ.  The scripture, Luke 19:10, was fitting as I replaced ‘ME’ with the Lost that the Son of Man had come to save.  Have you ever created any Christian art?  Let me see your Jesus piece and I’ll post it up on my blog!!

The Pigeon Hole Revisited.

What are you living for?  Where do you find your inspiration?  What makes you do the things you do?  Are you looking for something?  Most people are.  Sometimes it helps to take a look back at where you were at some point in the past to get a more clear picture of where you’re going in the future.  Thanks to an email from a friend and some advice from another, I’ve decided to take a look back at when I started this blog, and the reasons for doing it then, so that I might be able to remind myself of where I was and where I need to be.

t-shirt commission – first to support ministry

I recently finished a commission for a t-shirt design for an annual croquet tournament in Coldwater, Ohio, and it is the first commissioned art piece to support ‘buy a comic, save a nation’.  All money received will be transferred through BACSAN to Go Out Ministries in Haiti to support their House of Abraham project.  I’m not used to doing a lot of commissions, and I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone for this project as I’m not used to doing such a ‘cartoony’ style, but I hope to continue doing commissions in the future to help this ministry and others around the world.  Ultimately I hope to finish my comic and start selling it on a larger scale to be able to donate larger sums of money, but every little bit helps, and every commission brings supported ministries closer to their goals.  Read on to see how this project was made and how you can help!

Osama Tsunami and the Comic-kazi kid!

Finally coloring this long overdue t-shirt

Wow, what a week!  We’ve seen the most wanted man in the world shot dead and put to rest at sea.  We’ve seen how devastating events like the Japan tsunami can be, even for small towns like Celina, OH.  And I’ve seen my newborn son spend his second week on Earth…and inevitably had no time for art!

With all the crazy things going on;  With uncertainty about money and jobs, new lives to care for, the busy lives of a growing family, and grand events all over the news, it’s kind of hard to fathom ever getting our lives under control. We can’t. Thank God.

It’s been a long time.

Welcome to the family, Steven Jr.!

It has been a really, really long time since I’ve posted in this blog.  I’m sure I wasn’t missed.  I haven’t posted in about 4 months, and in that time a lot of very exciting things have happened.  I’ll give you a quick run down, then I will hopefully get better at updating this blog.
