As a young Christian in his early twenties, Mark Frontczak had a passion for communicating ideas through cartoons. He began by producing editorial cartooning for several newspapers. Drawing editorial cartoons taught him how he could make a powerful statement with a cartoon without necessarily needing to be funny. During that same time he was also learning God’s Word through The Way College of Biblical Research, Rome City, Indiana where he received an associate degree of Theology. He continued to cartoon with several others to form the Christian humor magazine, Glad Magazine in the early 1980s. It was at Glad that he along with the other cartoonists explored how cartoons and humor could be used to communicate ideas powerfully from God’s Word. He found this much more rewarding than editorial cartooning.
During the years of 1986 – 2010 Mark devoted his time to the ministry of the gospel of Jesus Christ and to his family. He then began to pray and consider that he might cartoon again. In looking at what is being produced today in Christian humor and cartoons specifically, there seems to be a need for cartoons that could speak to God’s people and reach them with the truth of His Word.
His desire is to provoke thought, build up and encourage the body of Christ, and perhaps evoke a laugh now and then. As long as Mark’s work is a glory to God and a blessing both to you and to him to produce, he will continue in this endeavor.
