THIS PROJECT IS CURRENTLY IN PAUSE MODE - and is expected to be continued in January 2016. (If you want to support my general artistry you are welcome to do so, but there will not be any new content added to this specific project until January 2016. All patrons have been asked to withdraw their support of this project. Feel free to download and enjoy the content made so far.)

You have come to the doorway of a new fantasy world, and are invited into it through the eyes of the character you see below, and the unlikely adventures he is about to embark upon. Just awakened from a blackout, and suffering from amnesia, he stands before the task of rediscovering himself, and exploring the strange world he inhabits. Since this fellow currently can't remember his own name, he has kindly agreed to being referred to as The Homp, while he figures things out. 

THE HOMP'S JOURNAL - Releases 1 to 9; The Adventure continues:
>> Download


By following the travels of the The Homp, the world and map of Jakyama will become familiar to us piece by piece, from the inside out. At times the Homp will zoom out a little to give us aerial “shots” or maps of areas covered, but mainly he will zoom in on all the things he finds exciting and of particular interest. The Homp will make nice renditions and descriptions of creatures and characters he encounters. He will draw locations, buildings, and many places of wonder. He might also depict items of power, tribal costumes, and examine specific details, like the blossoms or root systems of exotic plants. Jakyama is an ancient world of great mystery and strange powers. That much may be revealed.

I, the maker of these realms, have no great plan or vision already established. Instead I will discover Jakyama together with anyone who cares to follow the Homp on his journeys. It will be a world in the making, expanding and evolving, perhaps for the remainder of my life.

I will spend a minimum of 16-20 hours every month to start with, releasing at least one page of the Homp's journal per month. With the help of benevolent patrons, I hope to increase that time and effort significantly. If the gods (you guys) favor this project, I may come to use up to 80% of my working hours to create and develop this world, and share it with all. Regardless of the amount of world content produced, my rate of release will never exceed 'once per week'.



Patrons will be given a deeper and broader insight into the world of Jakyama. There will be content outside of the Homp's journal exclusive to those who energize his travels, and the level of support will determine his speed. All patrons will come to know things which sages near and far remain ignorant about, and granted a wider perspective of all events.

The first twelve entries of the Homp's journal can now be downloaded below. He kindly asks you to consider becoming a patron and protector of the world of Jakyama. The keywords to this world will be serious (no big-boobed nudes with super-sized swords), imaginative (not just a medieval realm with orcs tucked in), and mysterious (ancient dreams arise). Genuine (what makes my soul ring) will be prioritized before cool and original, and mythology (stories for inner growth) will keep an important lead on reason. Let us stall this no further. May the adventures begin. A new world lies ahead.

You are a major protector of the world of Jakyama, and will be given some influence over her existence. Perhaps you want your daughter's name to decorate the gates of a city, or a monster inspired by your dog? Write me and let me know of your desire. If they are compatible with my vision, I will grant you a mark upon the history and topography of Jakyama. The demi-gods will honor your name. You will also be credited in every PDF of Jakyama content, and sent an exclusive, signed (high-quality) print once a year.

If you belong to this admirable category of patrons at a time when fortune strikes, and a film- or game producer decides to purchase the rights to feature the world of Jakyama, in his or her production, I will make sure that your name ends up in the credits of the film or the game. This only applies if you have belonged to this elect category of patrons for two or more years, and belong to it at the time of such a deal. (The chances of this ever happening are of course very small). I will also send you a number of signed prints twice a year. Future prints (books?) of of Jakyama content will be yours for free, for as long as you remain a patron of this level.
