As a Bird She Escaped

[A repeat of an old favorite.]

This month's Fool [ahem] Daily tells briefly the life of St. Barbara. Her story, and the miracles and legends associated with her, are pretty fantastic, so I focused on those and left out the more sordid details of her martyrdom. I have some thoughts about how this turned out and how it could be better, but I'm remembering being told that I shouldn't immediately point my audience to all the things I don't like - so I'll let it stand on its own. If anything, these comics are fun for me and perhaps I won't worry about being too critical now. An icon of St. Barbara is included below.

Friday Night

[A repeat of an old favorite.]

Apparently, this is what grown ups do on Friday night.

Shining with Joy

[A repeat of an old favorite.]

I didn't mean to spend most of my day drawing the story of a really personal encounter with a saint. But, hey, I did, so why not be vulnerable and share it with the world, eh?

A House Blessing

[A repeat of an old favorite.]

Orthodox bless their homes each year between Theophany and the beginning of Lent. Our house blessing was yesterday, and so today's comic reflects on the sacredness of all things. "Nothing is profane except that which you profane."

St. Simeon the God-Receiver

[A repeat of an old favorite.]

We love the extra-biblical backstory of St. Simeon, and I love the colors in this one.
