The King Who Found His Self Control

How to Be a Kingdom Ninja

Harvest House Publishing Hired Brad to create this Graphic Novel by Daniel Gil. This was a fun and challenging project as this was Brad’s first Graphic Novel he’s ever created. Words cannot describe how fun it was to illustrate How to Be a Kingdom Ninja!

This is the second installment of The King Who Found His Self Control. This was a lot of fun!
