Christian Comics

In between client projects I do a webcomic called Sketchbook Silliness. It’s a way for me to express my creativity and just mess around. The whole thing is sort of an experiment with my comics ranging from the silly to the serious to the spiritual. I’ve been fortunate enough to have a few go viral. One recently made the front page of Reddit, another made most viral on Imgur, and I’ve had two comics get over one million views on TikTok (this one and this one).

You may have noticed that the second of those TikTok comics was about my Christian faith. A few days ago I posted another comic about my faith that has also been doing pretty well. It got 35 retweets on Twitter (which is a lot for me) and has been steadily passed around on Facebook with over 2,300 shares and counting).

Fact is, my Christian comics (on average) do as well or better than my other comics. Many of my regular comics have flopped, whereas most of my religious comics have done fair-to-well in terms of likes/comments/shares. They are few and far between but overall they are well-received.

So, I’ve decided to gather them all into one place. If anyone is interested in reading all of my Christian comics at once you can find them here. My hope is that they might be something there that will be a blessing to someone.

Most Viral!

In between client projects I do a webcomic called Sketchbook Silliness. My most recent cartoon exploded on Imgur yesterday, ultimately rising to the level of “Most Viral” which earned it a spot on the Imgur home page. It topped out at over 6,000 likes and over 191,000 views.

Meanwhile, over on Instagram it got over 22,500 likes from 238,000 views. So cool!

Thanks a bunch everyone!!

Weather Cartoon: Clouds

A few months ago I was hired by Spider Magazine to do a full-page comic based on the theme “weather”. This is one of several ideas I submitted. It’s not the one they chose but I liked it enough to finish it up anyway.
