Rachel and I got a chance to talk to Belvin Olasov from the USC Daily Gamecock while we were participating at last week's Cola Con. I'm glad Belvin used Rachel's quote about the Con. A lot of the artist's were disappointed about low turnout over the weekend, but Rachel pointed out that we all might have had some unrealistic expectations about a very young event. After talking with some local comic shop owners today, I think there's a general idea of how to get more crowds at next year's Cola Con. Here's to hoping that Cola Con 2014 is a smashing success. For our part in Cola Con 2013, Pretty Weird Art had a blast. We plan on participating again next year.

We had a great time at Cola Con! A big thank you to everyone who bought comics, prints, and original artwork from us. The con was small, but we met a lot of awesome people. Our table mate Sam Spina took this photo of our table for us...We bought one of his books and read it this afternoon. Fun Stuff. More pics of artwork from the con to come.
Check out our Pretty Weird Art Page to see some sketches from the Con: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pretty-Weird-Art/120074491366900

I’ve always been fascinated by God’s dealing with Cain. Cain was the first murderer. He killed his own brother out of jealousy and resentment. I’ve heard many a preacher talk about Cain’s murderous act, but very few have ever talked about God’s reaction to it.
God audibly asks Cain what he has done with his brother. Cain lies. God exposes his lie and forces Cain to acknowledge that he killed Abel. Cain then expresses a fear that when people learn of his crime, they will hunt him down and kill him. God’s reaction to Cain is not one of immediate judgment. He doesn’t eradicate him for his brother’s murder. Instead, he places a mark on Cain’s forehead and declares that if anyone harms him, they will incur God’s wrath.
I’ve always seen God’s response to Cain as an act of grace. God’s holiness demanded judgment for Cain’s wrongdoing, but God’s love and graciousness postponed that judgment until a later date. It even caused God to take steps to preserve Cain’s life.
