Stuart Ng Books is a favorite destination for artists in the entertainment industry.  They focusing solely in the areas of Illustration, Animation, and Comic Art.  They carry a distinctive selection of sketchbooks by animators and comic book artists. Hard to find outside of conventions, they acquire their sketchbooks directly from the artists and ship them worldwide.  They are the largest importer of French graphic novels in the United States. France has a thriving comics industry with some of the world’s best artists, yet less than one percent of French graphic novels are translated into English. They offer a hand-picked selection of bande dessinee chosen strictly for the graphic art and visual storytelling. 95% of their customers buying bande dessinee do not read French, they are that good!

    Dear Bancroft Brothers,
    Wow – I was blown away by your podcast today. Thank you so much for being open about your faith in Jesus, and for inviting Mr. Keane onto your show.

    I’m a former Bible college student-turned youth-pastor who left full-time ministry and began pursuing a non-educated freelance career as a cartoonist / graphic artist. I made that change over 10 years ago.

    I’m a big fan of you both, having bought a book from each of you and 4 of the online courses. I follow your work on Instagram and listen to your podcast.

    Can’t express fully enough how much your show brought peace and excitement to my day and will make a life-long impact. Knowing I am not alone in an artistic world means so much. Having two of my art heroes interviewing an art legend who all share the love of Jesus and then talking about it out loud…just very grateful.

    Thank you.
