Well...here we are.
Here I am asking for your support.
Who am I?

I am an award winning designer and illustrator. If you need credentials, you can check out my work here:

https://www.behance.net/KANZAR

For years, I have designed and illustrated award winning art for clients all over the world, and as a freelance mercenary, while owning my own Design firm for now 10 years.

But God broke me in the process, and out of that breaking, he asked me to illustrate and design three books/graphic novels for Him. They are graphic, intensely graphic, and will be hard to read for some, they have been called "Horrifically Beautiful" by most everyone that sees them, so that's the label I have attached to them.

For the last few years I have been illustrating them, inking and coloring them, trying to set aside 3 hours a day, but God keeps impressing on me, that this is all I need to be working on, and the passion for them is evident in my heart. So, here we are.

The trilogy of books, I believe this is my calling in life, this trilogy has been compared to "LORD OF THE RINGS", and "NARNIA", and I want more than anything to just complete it, with God's guidance.

If you support me, I will be using your support to help me work daily on this trilogy, and using your support monthly to stay above water, until the books are completed.

You're still here! AMAZING! You will get all the above, AND a signed poster from the book, once it is completed, and for sale. This poster will be a limited edition lithograph, only 250 will be printed, and the art will be totally separate from what you've seen so far, think MOVIE POSTER!!!

I am Blake M. Kandzer, award winning illustrator and designer. I am creating a book that is a gift from God, for God, for everyone...and I need your help to complete it. I need your help to support me, as I illustrate, ink, and color each page by hand.

I can't do it without you.

Created from the ashes of my life, as I was saved by Him, when my world was shattered, broken, & obliterated, the book will move hearts. I wanted to create something special, something you just can't go and pick up, but something that you will be proud to not only keep, but share.

You may not share the same experience, but we all can share pain.

This book shows what I felt, experienced, for the next 10 years. All set very graphically to the images God has placed in my mind to illustrate. Set up perfectly, as only He can, to make it into a story that Christians, and non-Christians alike, will not only understand, relate to, but also feel deep in their hearts where Jesus himself lives.

Large colored pages, to show graphically the intense pain, fear, and raw emotions of myself, beaten, bloodied, and fearful as Jesus walks, fights, and drags me through Sheol, or Hell itself. A colored, leather cover, of rich texture, to tie it altogether.  All written and hand drawn in a style and design that will leave you breathless. The packaging will be the book, with a black, ash, tear away cover, wrapped in rice paper, and sealed with a red seal at the top. When you open the seal, and the rice paper falls open, pieces of the cover will break away and lay in the bottom of the rice paper around the book...as though the book itself was sent to you from Sheol.

Lastly...I hope you see that there are no lengths a father won't go through for his daughter, even to battling for his own soul, and facing the strongest, very real, worst enemy ever imagined....fear. Here are just a few of the graphic, amazingly beautiful images from "SHEOL", Book 1 of the trilogy, showing myself and God fighting together for love.
