The recent influx of animated shows dealing with other dimensions surprises and delights me. Every time I envision a concept where the protagonists travel into other dimensions, I have to remind myself how that has already been done in so many ways. For those who don't know, the shows he's referring to are, in order: Penn Zero: Part Time Hero, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls, and Rick and Morty. All good shows I tried to do justice to in just a single panel each. Also, I'd like to say that though they all have similar features, they are all very original and differently handled shows each with their own strengths.

I think my best panel was the Gravity Falls one, which is unsurprising given that the show is my personal favorite and its style is the one I've practiced the most. This comic is the first time I've attempted to write words into the panels instead of outside it. It went better than I expected. Someone recently asked me how long this sort of think took. In this case it took me a little over an hour to draw this comic, but I loved every minute of it. Also to whoever draws anything in the style of Rick and Morty. Don't expect to be able to dabble in the art style without being corrupted by the dark concepts of this twisted show. You've been warned.

Also if anyone has any tips on seeking the Kingdom of God first before everything else I'd love to hear them. I've hit a roadblock in that department even though I feel like it's the next step.

Here's all the dialogue in case you can't read my horrible handwriting.
Panel 1:
Okay guys! I've got an absolutely fantastic idea for a TV show! It's about these kids that travel to a different dimension each day!
Um, that's actually already a show.
Panel 2: 
Okay fine. So what if instead the girl of the group was from another dimension and came to earth?
That's... that's already a show too.
Panel 3:
Just stick with me- this can work. What if the kids stayed on Earth, and everything else came from a different dimension?
Are you...? Is this a...? That's also a show!
Panel 4:
Alright, forget the kids. What if instead it was just one kid and his grandpa going into other dimensions!
That's still already a show!

Belated Pearl Harbor Day

Well, Pearl Harbor Day was yesterday. I wanted to honor the occasion with something like this. I got busy yesterday so I drew this today.

God bless the people who are still affected by that attack. Thank you God for using that event to spurn us to action as a country, and for making the world a better place through it. Lord guide us however you want today, and show us the way forward. Lord you know best when we as a nation need a wake up call and exactly the right amount we need. Thank you that we are still a nation under You in spite of our best efforts. Amen.

Happy Face

I've been feeling a little down on not getting enough practice. So instead of attempting to draw the intense, photo realistic images I want to be able to draw but can't- I decided to draw this happy duckling with a disproportionately large head and impossibly small feet. It's a habit of mine to draw happy faces when trying to feel happy, and it works really well. Mirror neurons and all that.

This is actually the first time I remember trying to draw a cartoon duck. It's surprisingly easy (at least for me). I thought the elongated grin was going to throw me off. I also remembered to re-trace the drawing so it would show up on the printing scanner before I got up! Yes. The cut-off bit at the very bottom is part of another sketch I didn't include.

On an unrelated note, who else is hoping Jesus comes back this Christmas? Of course earlier than that would be great. I'm looking forward to Christmas too of course (and a lot of other things if I think about it). I just really want Him to come.
