Green Goblin

I never grow tired of anything related to the original green Goblin. Such a beautiful character design and the colors are great too. Here's a quick sketch I colored in Photoshop.

Luther on Cheerfulness

A Christian should and must be a cheerful person. If he isn't, the devil is tempting him. I have sometimes been grievously tempted while bathing in my garden, and then I have sung the hymn, "Let us now praise Christ". Otherwise I would have been lost then and there.

Accordingly, when you notice that you have some thoughts, say, "This isn't Christ." To be sure, he can hear the name of Christ, but it's a lie because Christ says, "Let not your hearts be troubled" (John 14:27) "Trust in me" etc. This is a command of God: "Rejoice!"

I now preach this, and I also write it, but I haven't as yet learned it. But it happens that we learn as we're tempted. If we were always glad, teh devil would befoul us. Christ knows that our hearts are troubled, and it is for this reasonthat he commands, "Let not your hearts be troubled."

Behold the Man...

O sacred Head, now wounded,
with grief and shame weighed down,
now scornfully surrounded
with thorns, thine only crown:
how pale thou art with anguish,
with sore abuse and scorn!
How does that visage languish
which once was bright as morn!

What thou, my Lord, has suffered
was all for sinners' gain;
mine, mine was the transgression,
but thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior!
'Tis I deserve thy place;
look on me with thy favor,
vouchsafe to me thy grace.

What language shall I borrow
to thank thee, dearest friend,
for this thy dying sorrow,
thy pity without end?
O make me thine forever;
and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never
outlive my love for thee.

Just Arrived...

Got my first batch of books in yesterday.

Currently redesigning my website, so they should be available online soon: )

For anyone who cares, I ended up foregoing Lulu and going with another Print on demand company called 360 Digital Books out of Michigan. I ended up paying a little more with set-up fees and whatnot, but the quality was better and I could actually talk to REAL HUMAN BEINGS!!! As opposed to drowning on Lulu's infinite, impersonal FAQ forums. This place had really good customer service and you actually get a sales rep.

Lulu also ends up eating most of your profit if you end up using their distribution service.
