Letting the Field… Lie Fallow.

Hey all!

It’s been a long string of weeks since I’ve posted any content up on Benjamite. Some of that’s due to a busy professional season; some of it’s due to increased commitments within my church and community. Neither of those are bad things, but they’ve refined my notion of what I want to post online and how.

This blog initially started as a home for thoughts and essays about my personal life, and was specifically targeted at college friends. (We actually started a nice little network of blogs so that we could make long updates and keep in touch.) Last year, I transitioned it into a home for my comics and design work, but the more I think about it, this blog takes some time and care to maintain– and there’s not much of a comics or design community on WordPress. At least, not right now.

So I’ve started a new blog– one that’s smack in the middle of a vibrant online space where lots of folks share the interests I’m trying to cultivate. And I’m inviting you to join me.

It’s called Hipogram, over at Tumblr, and it’s a comics-focused site where you’ll be able to find all of my current pen-and-ink type work (along with some short ideas on other comics I’m mulling over). It’s quick to update, easy to stay on top of, and it’s an area where, frankly, I can communicate the Gospel through my words and actions to a community that’s unfamiliar with it.

In the meantime, this blog will stay up as an archive. Nothing’s going to be hidden or shut down.

I’m excited for this new venue. Come check it out!

Much as I love posting these Hutchmoot sketches, there’s someone else whose work you’ve got to see. Check out my friend Jonny Jimison’s blog, where he’s also adding original cartoons to the mix!

Tales of New Creation

Continuing to post some of my notes and sketches from Hutchmoot 2012…

These are notes from a session called “Tales of New Creation.” It totally rocked my thinking. I’m guilty of imagining that the afterlife will consist of disembodied souls floating among the clouds, but that’s a Platonic idea— it doesn’t line up with Christian orthodoxy. We won’t be intangible. The afterlife is material, and God’s the most substantial of us all.

I’d love to see a story that takes this angle.

Some Advice To A Newly Wedded Couple

My friends Stephen and Lauren got married last weekend. This has been a long time coming, and their romance has been a really cool picture of commitment, dying to selfishness, and God’s pure grace.

With that in mind, I decided to give them some of my

Kidding aside, these two are passionate for each other and for their devotion to Jesus Christ, and they know that though marriage isn’t easy, it’s very much worth it. They like to have adventures, and they’re going to get in a lot of (good) trouble together with they way they live out the Gospel.

Comics From Guests: A Million Thanks

My friend Julian is a crazy person (he orchestrated this, for example). He’s also a talented artist, which I didn’t quite realize until he was our houseguest for a few weeks while on a med school rotation. This cartoon was his way of saying thanks.

I was pretty gratified.

Comics for Camp: Completed!

As mentioned a few months ago, my ongoing illustration work with Pine Cove Christian Camps yielded some cool fruit this year: the opportunity to do comic pages. Here are the finished single-page stories I did for their Base Camps Bible Studies. (You can see the rough drafts here— most of which are pretty different from the final versions!)
