My Vision for Creating Bible Comics (Graphic Translations)

As an artist, teacher and priest, I see the potential for the comic format to translate the Holy Scriptures in exciting ways:

  • it can represent ideas and images in ways tht words alone cannot
  • it can provide a background to the story and fill in gaps that may be left out in the decisions of translations
  • it can bridge the distance between the ancient world and the modern world.
  • it is able to cross language and cultural barriers
  • it is able to represent different cultures in the artwork itself and allow it to speak to new groups

I seek to create such translations and share them with people in a variety of formats, electronic and in print.

I seek to work with writers, artists and biblical translators to create graphic translations of books of the bible, most of which is untouched by this media.
