Featured Seller: ShepherdLamb
1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Carlton Merriam. I live in the small community of Ocean View, New Jersey. Just 20 miles north of the Delaware Bay. My wife and I attend the local church and we just love it there.
2. What inspires you to create your work?
Last Sept. I was on a missions trip to Haiti. On my return as I was sitting in the Port-O-Prince Airport awaiting departure, I noticed that most of the people in the airport where returning home from the Missions field. I also notice that none of them had Christian t-shirts on and that several of
them had secular themes on their shirts. It was then that God gave me the desire to launch Shepherdlamb.
3. What is your favorite thing to make/sell?
I hand draw all the illustration for Shepherdlamb and that gives me a world of pleasure. As for the sale of products I most enjoy the unusual
like our Notepads and Gift Cards.
4. What is the best part about being a Christian seller?
It’s that it forces you to be in the word 24-7. You’re always thinking of the next product to launch.
5. Why do you do what you do?
I have set up Shepherdlamb to help local and worldwide mission groups. I have committed 50% of net proceeds to go to these outreaches”.

Playing on Illustrator CS4. It’s amazing.

The Bible, Left Behind Series and Star Wars
