Having web sites that promote Christian cartoons is a benefit and a blessing. One of my favorite web sites that does just that and includes my After Eden cartoons in their selection is: http://www.christiancartoons.com/
My friend Marty has selflessly run this web site as well as created a special web family for the cartoonists who's cartoons are included on this site. I would encourage you to bookmark this site and check it out each week!

Every once in a while I like to Google my name just to see what I can find. Being that I work for Answers in Genesis, I have fans that like my artwork, and I have what I call "anti-fans" who don't like my work, me as a person (though they don't know me personally) or the fact that I even exist on this planet at all. So this little Google exercise can provide rather varied results.
One of my latest finds is in the EvoWiki, the evolutionist version of a Wikipedia-type site. I am mentioned in the opening paragraph of the section titled, "The Truth About Leviathan". The reason I am referred to is because of an illustration I produced a number of years ago of the biblical creature called Leviathan found in Job, chapter 41. The sentence goes like this:
"Here's what YECs like Dan Lietha imagined Kronosaurus as according to Psalms 104 and Job 41", and that is followed by a link to a copy of my version of Leviathan.
Yes, I am a YEC, which stands for Young Earth Creationist. And I would probably be pretty safe in saying the those that oppose us YECs get a big bang (pardon the pun) out of calling us YECs. Although we refer to ourselves as YECs at times in our own publications, the way old earthers and evolutionists use YEC at times seems like it's calling us a name. "Hey stupid", "look at that idiot", "YECs like Dan Lietha". YECs ... YUCK! Surf around the web and tell me I'm wrong. Now, don't misunderstand me. I'm not complaining, just making an observation. And in this particular instance in the EvoWiki, it may or may not have such name-calling intent. It just strikes me funny. " YECs like Dan Lietha". I like it.
