Welcome to my world. 

Driftwood Archives is an evolving dark fantasy universe with an ongoing narrative that is explored through the looking glass of digital paintings, sketches, short stories, maps, poetry, and lore writings. It is a place of incredible depth and immense size overflowing with powerful and fickle magic; it is filled with captivating characters, terrifying monsters, breathtaking places, fantastic artifacts, precarious magic, and eldritch horror. Driftwood Archives represents the stories that weave all of this together to span multiple genres and mediums, a living and breathing entity that lives and breathes by it’s fans. Come with us on this journey... delve into the unknown.

Who am I?

My name is Matthew Myslinski, an independent illustrator, concept artist, and writer. I am the creator of Driftwood Archives and make dark fantasy artwork, short stories, tabletop games, and world-building lore entries. Within my work is adventure and peril drawing inspiration from my favorite genres: classic fantasy, dark fantasy, sword and sorcery, post-apocalypse, science fiction and horror.

Driftwood Archives has been floating in the aether of my studio for many years now, the building blocks forming slowly over a great deal of time and it's finally ready to be brought out into the world. I want to tell stories and explore this world in great detail and flesh out the incredible characters, visit amazing places, and witness fantastic events... all of which require a lot of time and effort. If you enjoy my work, please take a look at the exclusive rewards below and consider joining us and supporting me on this journey! Your support allows me to spend time creating and developing this passion project.

For those of you who are unaware of what Patreon is...
it is a monthly tip jar to support an artist or other creator similar to an ongoing subscription that allows us to focus on making the stuff you like!


Alright, I'm in. What do I do?

All you have to do is hit the big orange Become A Patron button to support my work. Patreon only charges you on the 1st of the month, and you can back out or change your pledge level at any time you want with absolutely no consequences. There's no forced commitment or hidden tricks. Some even just pledge for a limited time, and that's totally okay too!

As always... thank you for your support!! I cannot do this without you guys, and the encouragement I've already received from my current patrons means the world to me. Thank you for coming on this journey with me!
