A GRAPHIC NOVEL
The Temptations graphic novel is about Jesus’s temptations by the Devil in the wilderness, as described in the books of Matthew, Mark and Luke. I want to explore the process of spiritual conflict, the themes of Jesus’s struggle with the Devil and with doubt, and his journey of transformation in the most challenging situation – namely being tempted and attacked by the armies of darkness.
The Temptations graphic novel is a passion project, and a huge milestone for me. It’s my first graphic novel, grown out of an idea that has been bubbling away in my mind for some time. The graphic novel is 47 comic pages long, and I am sharing my progress on the comic as I go, primarily through a monthly newsletter, and through social media channels.
The plan for the comic is to go through a crowd funding campaign to get it printed and in your hands.
I have posted pages 1-22 The Temptations here for free reading.
If you want to support the comic, and read pages 23-47 and see all kinds of process images and sketches, you can support me on Patreon here:
I share all kinds of things on my Patreon, including sketches, lineart, research and concept art, as well as a lot of my other illustration work. You can even request commissions at the top tier!
