The Past: CJ and Clevon.

This is a look at CJ's past, an experience that influences his present.  I think the narrative could be clearer but hope that at least the idea comes across. I hope to explore his character in looking at some of the experiences that have led to his current attitude.  It will be interesting to see a different side of his character as well.  Introducing: Clevon Little.

A little late but nonetheless in memory of Pastor Chuck Smith.

A faithful pastor and Teacher who started the Calvary Chapel movement and by God's grace a revival in the 70's of which I, and many countless others, am the fruit.

From his writing and teaching I learned what Grace really meant.
And I learned that following God is done honestly and in God's strength.

He has entered into his reward now :)

Surprised to find that my Prismacolor Markers still work and so am looking forward to giving color a try. 

Am dedicated to continuing the work of this story as the inspirations before me have been dedicated to theirs and bore, in different ways, a type of fruit. 

Life's troubles and struggles can often outweigh its joys.  We cling to what we know to be true. In this case, He who we know to be true.

And just like that, they join the present. 

I ask that if you haven't yet, check out the entire "snow"  series from beginning to end here.  It is part of a continuous story of Redemption.  If you know anyone who enjoys comics or comic strips, please pass it along too.  thank you folks.  Man I love it when Dandruff gets mad (is that wrong?) 

The story continues....

A Crucial Moment

A crucial moment.  Ive found myself here too many times and its one of the reasons I wanna do Bunker Row.  I want CJ to represent many things about many readers but one thing that I really get to express through him is the anger, the frustration that comes in life. Its very real and I desire to express that struggle very much through this character.  Its also an outlet to express Gods Grace through Christ and the teaching process of learning to love others willingly even we are at the end of our rope emotionally.

I really wanna express the quickness and violence of the anger, the struggle to keep it contained and, as happens often, the guilt that follows afterward.  Its especially hard for CJ in this case, as you will you see later, because since his New Relationship with God , hes tried so hard to be 'good'.

Strips like this are why 'Bunker Row' exists.

 Ive got alot to learn too, CJ, hang in there buddy....

The Road to Jesus' mercy.....

The Snow Story is drawing to a conclusion as Summer emerges!!  I have no regrets.  Im blessed to keep experimenting and seeing God develop the characters.  This Story does have a purpose, thank God.

But an idea came, I can play around with the space time continuum and present the Children as they are in the summer.  Here's a quote from the summer:

You'd respond the same way if you heard someone say it. :)

Graduating Kindergarteners and pursuing God's grace and possibly a new opportunity :)  but the story goes on.

 Loving how Dandruff and Lara's personalities show in this.  Found a new thing for Dandruff to do ALOT.

Praise God :)

Lara McArtney and Everett "Dandruff" Phelps.  Two kids playing 'House' so far to the extreme that it has become a part of their lifestyle whenever they are together.  I hope to show through their relationship how God has to work in us as people to truly love those around us.  This is actually a constant theme throughout 'Bunker Row' that I hope is seen.  The idea that we are surrounded by people and that this is life and without the help of Jesus, we cannot truly love these people.  And He still has to work with us even as Christians :)  (Who are these people around me?)

I hope to see the relationship between Lara and Dandruff develop into something that natural and relatable yet "Sitcomonly Comic". I also want to soon share some of the inspirations for the development of these characters who both go back YEARS ago when I was in High school. 

Its a blast to draw the frayed hair under Lara's ears and Dandruff's big mouth when he yells.

a doodle that i love cause it allows me to express alot in a little. 

One of the things i want to do in this strip is express alot of those feelings that i feel but also keep the characters true to themselves.  Theres also just a sweet little truth there that is a little comforting. 

In Grace,
