Introduction to Video Blog

Published: January 27, 2021

Hello everyone, and welcome to my first Video Blog! I have been away from IKONiMATION for a long time and am now ready to get back into creating new content. I have a lot planned for the near and far future and the first step is video blogging. I’ve actually been planning on video blogging for a long time now and am so happy that I finally jumped in and did it!

The purpose of my video blogs is to share and keep you up to date on what’s going on in the world of IKONiMATION. I will be sharing with you the creation process of my projects, like taking you behind the scenes of working on my new Father Gabriel 3D model and revealing sketches and drawings of my Father Gabriel Children’s book.

These videos and more will be coming in the future so please Subscribe to the IKONiMATION email list to get email notifications when new Blog Videos are posted.

Hope you enjoy my videos and please post your feedback and questions in the comments section below.

Wisdom from Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica:
“God is perfect, He is faultless. And so, when Divine love becomes manifest in us in the fullness of Grace, we radiate this love — not only on the earth, but throughout the entire universe as well. So God is in us, and He is present everywhere. It is God’s all-encompassing love that manifests itself in us. When this happens, we see no difference between people: everyone is good, everyone is our brother, and we consider ourselves to be the worst of men — servants of every created thing.”

Psalm 1:3
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

    How wonderful to see you through the video blog!! You must be so busy with these projects you’re working on. Especially I’m so excited about Father Gabriel Children Book! I hope his kitty would be in the story 🙂 The 3D model looks fantastic also! God bless you and your family!

      Hello Mary. Thanks for your comment! Yes for the past year I’ve actually taken a break trying to improve my skills in modeling and animation. Now I think I am ready to get back into creating again. More Video Blogs are coming soon, including one video about the progress of my Father Gabriel’s children’s book. Thanks again!

    I know I only translated 3 old episodes into Serbian but I want them to be read. People will like them. Nick put a lot of time and effort into Father Gabriel so everyone can enjoy.

    I can’t wait to see the animation.

      Thanks Milovan! I really appreciate your effort in translating my Father Gabriel comic strips to Serbian. They were perfect! God willing you will have time to translate more in the future. God bless you and talk to you soon!

    Hi Nicholas,
    Hey, friend, your creativity is awesome!
    I really like seeing you instead of simply reading. Keep up the video blogs and your other really great work!
