Pastor Shep
Part Shepherd, Part Sheep, 100% Sustained by Grace
Pastor Shep is a weekly Christian comic strip that pokes fun at the blunders of ministers as they struggle to be followers of Christ and leaders of people.  ​It also celebrates the quirky family of faith that we've come to love and call "the Church". 

                          YOU'RE FREE TO USE THE COMICS!...BUT...
                          I would love it if you'd email me to let me know

​Big news: I won an  'Award of Excellence' from the Associated Church Press for the design and illustration of the General Assembly coverage in the July-August 2016 issue of the Presbyterian Record magazine.  I illustrated the cover, as well as some spot illustrations for the article itself.

​This is what the judge said about the cover: “Here you see struggle, indifference, passion, pain, and the gamut of emotions as good people of faith grapple with that elephant in the room. This is good storytelling without being offensive to differing views. Simple and poignant. Great work!”
