Hi John, I have been watching your blog and updates for several years. I really appreciate your openness of sharing the church drawings and having subtle drops of your beliefs. It is a comfort to me, breaking into an illustration career, knowing that there are others who have faith in a higher power. Keep up the awesome, inspiring work!

Thanks Tulip!

Nikoby- thanks for the encouragement. Illustration is such a fit with faith and things of God- parables were really illustrations. Keep drawing!
