Just keeping it real. Even comic characters need to go to the megamarket from time to time.

I had the tremendous opportunity to work with my friend Eric Jansen recently on a comic tract titled “Vengeance is Mine”, as part of a ministry for Forsquare Missions Press. The story was a real blessing to draw, and I found it to be a very engaging subject matter (and a nice departure from the usual “December Sun” stuff). I love branching into new territories and subject matter, especially if the topic is ministry-related. The book is a short story addressing gang violence, and specifically about a gang member who loses a brother, and decides to take vengeance, until Someone urges him to reconsider his actions.
The track is available at the Foursquare Missions Press site, both as a tract that can be ordered, and also as a free PDF file that can be downloaded. I did the pencils and inks, and Jonathan Koelsch did the coloring (and the colors are just breath-taking. I think this is the closest I’ve ever seen my artwork actually look “professional”… :) Jonathan did a remarkable job with the colors.
There are a number of other tracts at Foursquare, all worth checking out. Eric illustrated many of these, and his artwork is sharp (I’ve seen a number of his tracts and he adds a tremendous level of detail and realism to what he draws. The Paraman one is outstanding.)

In honor of the new Transformers film, I’m posting some of the worst artwork I’ve ever created on my other miscellaneous blog: this is a spoof comic called “The Disorders”, written and drawn by me in 6th grade, back when the Transformers cartoon was in the height of it’s popularity.
I was a huge transformers nut back then, and had tons of the toys (I mowed lawns to afford an Optimus Prime) so having grown up with this show, I couldn’t help but turn this into a goofy, spoof comic. So here is my own, silly version of these characters. Optimus is a toilet in my comic, etc.

I’ll admit with this panel, I didn’t like how the car turned out (I really don’t like drawing vehicles) so I shamelessly hit it with dialog. Hey, it’s not like I work for Marvel… I can do stuff like that if I like.
