Comics in New Martyr Magazine


I've fallen behind on my monthly-fool-daily, but I'm still making comics! New Martyr is a new quarterly magazine for Orthodox kids, and I've contributed a recurring comic "Draw Near" to the last two issues, as well as hidden picture puzzles. Each issue features stories and illustrations from a variety of contributors (and some kids!) relevant to the season and feasts in the church year. I was excited to draw some St. Lucia ills for the Winter edition, since we have a Lucia in our house. The next issue will arrive in time for Holy Week - so be sure to order yours!

Draw Near in the Winter 2016 issue - featuring St. Lucia Day!


A Hidden-Picture Puzzle and Recipe for the Winter 2016 Issue

Fr. Paul Drozdowski's lovely illustrations of St. Herman 

So, it looks like I my daily might have become a quarterly, but I'm persisting! Thanks for checking in with me. ;)

As a Bird She Escaped - St. Barbara

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.

Shining with Joy: a story about faith

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?

Ss. Xenophon, Maria, John and Arkadios

After drawing today's daily, we read today's saint story in the Prologue. This was such a unique and fun story, I wanted to draw it, too!
