Joshua is a character I created that will appear in a future episode of Father Gabriel web comic. Joshua is a little boy who always has the Jesus Prayer in his heart, whether in good times or difficult times.

My goal for this cartoon was to create something very simple for little children, to teach them how important and helpful prayer is to their life, how prayer will always comfort them whether they are at home or school.

For this cartoon, I drew a series of drawings (on my smartphone), and created very simple movements using a software called Adobe After Effects. The reason I didn’t use 3D animation for the cartoon was simply because it usually takes me 6 months to create something like Father Gabriel’s Prayer, where for this cartoon I wanted something quick and simple to teach children about the importance of prayer.

I hope you enjoy this little cartoon. Please feel free to leave your comments below 🙂

    This is delightful and beautifully simple. I am eager to show it to my grandchildren ages 4, 3, and 2. Thank you for making it. I am enjoying your work.
    May God save us. Kim
