Another opportunity for artists to see their name in a comic strip. Newsboys, One Nation Crew, Jaci Velasquez, Bebo Norman, Scott Krippayne, Geoff More, Gary Chapman, Jars of Clay, Point of Grace and Jennifer Knapp. This was a few months before I stopped drawing the strip and I realized I wasn’t familiar with about half of these artists. I started feeling like my era of bands and musicians were aging off the charts and new people were coming in. I didn’t know them and I wasn’t sure I wanted to know them. I’d begun noticing worship music was becoming more popular while alternative music was fading into the background and I was much more of an alternative guy than a worship dude. And I thought it was strange I could now say the phrase “Okay, I think I’ll eat Jaci Velasquez” in CCM Magazine and not get in trouble. Where were the standards going??
