Cheers and admiration for Kate, Rian, our pals at BOOM! Studios, and the little girl who we hope will grow up to be the World’s #1 Cartoonist.

Today I witnessed something amazing. Almost in stark contrast to yesterday, today I saw tangible impact of lady-representation in comics.

At the bookstore I work at, we have a dedicated Adventure Time section. This family came in and those kids were SO EXCITED to see their favourite characters in comics. I talked them through each OGN and series compilation, explaining what they all were and in what order they should be read, and this little girl’s entire life was changed. You could see it on her face.

The moment I mentioned Kate Leth (and that, yes, she is a girl.) this little girl’s face lit up like Christmas morning. I don’t know if it just never occurred to her that girls can work in comics but the excitement and wonder that left the store in her was a privilege to see. I ended up selling them the Fionna & Cake’s, all the OGN’s, and an AT doodle book. She left begging her dad to help her learn how to draw Marceline comics. (And he was happy to comply!)

Kate Leth has left an everlasting impression on this little girl just by existing and working in the industry. I honestly hope to someday be able to see such an impact on someone from my own work. Ladies in comics is important. The representation on the page, and behind them, is important. Having a reflection of yourself in the content you enjoy is important. I hope that little girl grows up to be a famous comic author someday.

It was a very good day.


Lol. Such a great story!

I updated some artwork I did for our church back in 2010… the top one we use each week during worship for our “Mission Moment.” Each week we highlight a country and mission organization serving that country and pray for them.

The other three are LOVE.LIVE.LABOR. They are the shorthand version of our church’s mission statement: Vintage Faith Church; a people who love God and others, live Jesus out loud, and labor for the kingdom in our community and around the world for the glory of God.

These are some pretty simple drawings that I am more excited about than much of what I have done. I feel like I have captured what I truly believe is the purpose of the Church: to be firmly planted in the midst of people and communities of this world and make a positive impact wherever she finds herself. I believe the Church’s power to do this comes from God, who loved us first (2 Corinthians 5:13-22).

Amazingly, although our church is very young, has less than 30 members, and no outside funding, we have been able to support mission work in Haiti as well as having sent out missionaries from our church to both India and Slovenia. It’s good stuff.

I love bears and questions… typos and all.

CORAM DEO. Taken from a few of Bob’s sermons. The song lyrics are from the song “Seen a Darkness” by John Mark McMillan. Remarkable guy.

Happy 2014!

I had one last sheet of paper in my sketchbook… So I decided to draw a comic about turning 30 today. Holy crap. I am 30. That is all.
