An Ode to the Ice King (Insanity)

An Ode to the Ice King (Insanity)

Time: 4 hours and 43 minutes Though not usually one for fan art, I thought the story of Adventure Time’s Ice King was really beautiful, and touched me deeply. I think I wove elements of Drangé into this as well, for their tales are aligned in poetic tragedy. I hope you enjoy the piece; he is a wonderful character, and the series in general is great fun. I love how creative and random it is, how nothing stops the creators…

On Making Art for INFJ’s

On Making Art for INFJ’s

I am an INFJ (I guess that cat’s out of the bag). And, while an artist, I don’t truly consider myself a “painter” artist. First and foremost, I am a storyteller; a “novelist, playwright, and a poet”. And yet I could not imagine life without my art; it is my right arm, the extension of my very being. Creativity is the very air I live and breathe, even as writing is second nature; running through my veins as surely as…

Confine

Confine

Poem, poem, Whisper not, What all those structured words forgot, But between you and I, What meaning holds? When silence fades, where words unfold? Their names, remembered; Timeless, old, Unique, impassioned, Bitter; Bold… And what dreams are glimpsed, Behind your eye? Where silence fades, and ravens cry? Where sun doth shine, And dreams implore; One to remember, their long lost lore? What shackles bind, and realms entrust? Such sacred things, subject to lust? Where rules and binding, strict, “refined”, These…

The Silver One – Progress, and Ursula K. Le Guin

The Silver One – Progress, and Ursula K. Le Guin

This month I have been busy writing, illustrating, and designing for my book, The Silver One—as well as posting many new videos to my Youtube Channel in an effort to catch up to the present. Though the month isn’t quite over yet, I have had a really wonderful time. It has been productive and inspiring both, in terms of the chapters I have been writing, but also in the discovery of the characters. A major block for me was not…

Five Years…

Five Years…

  Today I find myself working on a storyboard for my book, and reflecting on the journey I have been on. This was me, five years ago, when I first painted my silver dragon digitally. And now, five years later, from doing what I love, I am amazed at where I find myself. I write this as a message for other artists, or would-be dreamers. Follow your dreams, and don’t question where you are now—because it’s the journey that makes…

Trapped

Trapped

Time: 15 hours.   Though I spent far longer on this than I intended, I can see the results speak for themselves. It will make a beautiful two-page spread in my book, and I can only imagine the youth of our future who will one day come to enjoy it. I love this so much. The colours and translucency are far more beautiful than I had imagined. All in all, this is a very sad scene, and yet it has…

On the Making of This Website (Welcome)

On the Making of This Website (Welcome)

It is a strange thing to see this website finally existing before me. The design first came to me—the background, at least—in the time of 2012. Then it was something basic, the mockup a rudimentary Flash creation, with individually site-mapped pages and a colourful array of side-buttons. That was also the year I began to blog, and over time came to realise that a website was much more than manually-updated content—one needed something in which to write and publish articles,…
