Church Cartoons for St. Thomas Episcopal Church

A few years ago, I started attending St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Sunnyvale, California. It’s been a fun time attending the church, and it’s been a safe environment for me to figure out what I still believe about my Christian faith without any sort of pressure or hassles from other people. The people at St. Thomas have been very kind and I’ve appreciated the insightful sermons and have used the church library extensively to read about the Episcopal Church and alternate views on Christianity. The pastor of the church has been kind enough to allow me to do artwork for the Sunday bulletin. I’ve occassionally published these cartoons on Everyday Citizen, and it has given me the opportunity to read the Sunday passages early and to mull it over for a week. Here are my church cartoons for Everyday Citizen.

About angelolopez

I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life. Since I was a child I’ve drawn on any scrap of paper I could get a hold of. When I went to San Jose State University, I became more exposed to the works of the great fine artists and illustrators. My college paintings were heavily influenced by the humorous illustrations of Peter De Seve, an illustrator for the New Yorker magazine. I also fell under the spell of the great muralists of the 1930s, especially Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera. I graduated with a degree in Illustration. Since my time in college, my goal has been to be a successful children’s book illustrator. I’ve illustrated 3 books: Two Moms the Zark and Me by Johnny Valentine in 1993; Night Travelers by Sue Hill in 1994; and Cherubic Children’s New Classic Story Book Volume 2 for Cherubic Press in 1998. I’ve painted murals for Lester Shields Elementary School in San Jose, the Berryessa branch of the San Jose Public Library, and Grace Community Church in Los Altos. I’ve had a few illustrations published in South Bay Accent Magazine and I will have an illustration published in the January/February issue of Tikkun magazine.
