BEARDEDBABY.NET is an online home for the comics and community projects of John Stephens.
John WHO? I've been making picture stories ever since I could hold a pencil. The time the I should have been in college was spent in solitude and laughing silence, roaming the Massanutten wilderness. Transformed by my experience as a husband and father, I struggle with a call to transform my community, as a student and teacher inspired by the prophets of YHWH and the Religious Society of Friends.
Some of the things I'm presently working on include:
+ PICTURE STORIES: making distinctive comics for the web & print
+ ILLUSTRATION & DESIGN: working with assorted media & software
+ TUTOR & TEACHER: I'm presently in school studying toward teacher certification; I've been working as a tutor and teacher in Northern Virginia for over a year.
+ PEACE WORK: Working with my neighbors to cultivate creative peace dialogue, my experience in AFSC's Help Increase the Peace Project draws me deeper into an illuminating process for transforming conflict and building community.
