For the liberal gay atheist in all of us. New comics each weekday at 12:01 AM.

I was once a Evangelical Christian. I did the whole laying on of hands, speaking in tongues and general spouting of hate. Of course I didn't realize that is what I was doing. I thought what I was doing was spreading love. I consider myself blessed that I was able to break free of the bondage of religion and can now express my true self.
A great man once said, "You must be the change that you want to see in the world." I hope to change every day.
The bottom line is that as much as I want to be, I am not a comic artist. It takes way too long for me to create the artwork for each episode and I need time for other Bambi projects. Just to give you an idea of what all I am working on:
-Pop/hip hop God Hates Bambi song.
-Music video for said song.
-Several God Hates Bambi short films.
Non Bambi related:
-New art instruction book on the way called The Real World of Colored Pencil.
-Organizing a major art show in the St. Louis MO area to be held some time this summer.
-Graphic novel based on an original crime thriller screenplay.
On top of all this, I'm training for Roller Derby. So, yeah, I really need a comic artist. :-)
I don't think you should claim you're not a comic artist, and your drawings certainly aren't all that bad. Look at Dilbert if you want to see bad drawings.
I may be alone here, but I just want to see updates to the story. If you have some large personal activities that are getting in the way, I can understand a hiatus; looking for an artist can take a long time and, unpaid, will guarantee no results.
I'm not sure that the music and short films are really all that necessary, but that's your call.
I hope to see more GHB when things get a little easier for you.
white4lima - I want to show you something. This link is to a portrait that I created a couple of years ago. It takes me almost as long to create one episode of God Hates Bambi as it does to create a 9 x 12 portrait like this.
I can create comic art, I'm just not good at it. So, it takes a really long time for me to come up with something that is decent. The kind of art that I do feel I am good at takes a lot less time. Here's another link. This is to a blog post where I describe how to use colored pencil.
This is the kind of work that I am very comfortable creating. I was hoping that I would find a groove in comic art as well. But I'm afraid that just isn't happening. :-(
If I don't find anyone to take over the art, I will continue the comic, but I might end up scaling it back to a couple of comics a week, or I may revert to an easier method of creating the art. I'm not sure. I'll just have to play it by ear and see what happens.
