Over the past year and a bit I've been writing and illustrating haiku, as a means to better myself as an artist and practice drawing digitally. Safe to say, it completely spiraled into a never-ending non-linear world-building project. The larger idea is that it's all from the point of view of the same narrator, and I'm really enjoying creating and exploring their surreal, beautiful and horrible universe.
Whilst there's a heavy fantasy vibe to these, I find the fantasy genre extremely euro-centric, and I like to crap on that a lot.
As a self-employed illustrator, my income and job satisfaction fluctuates dramatically. My own personal work is what I most enjoy doing.
I've decided to make my Patreon public-access, as I find it hard to promote stuff that's behind a paywall, and I'd like my work process gifs and write-ups to be accessible to everyone. So if you enjoy my stuff - a pledge of any amount for as long as you'd like would allow me to keep creating the work I love, as well as taking it to new leves, and also let me to take care of myself in general.
