I've some stories to tell and some monsters to show.
At the end of all is gone
Hope will heed the call
Children who’ll never be born
Will rise and they will fall
At the end it will be shown
Even unending days must come
To an end.
- Diona’s Rhyme
Metakuss: Unending Days (M.U.D) is an epic and engrossing story (in the making!) taking place in an original world inspired by post-apocalyptic, fantasy, and heavy metal themes. It follows the adventures (and misadventures) of mighty heroes doing their best to help the few human survivors of a land that is the ruined carcas of our own, beset by nightmarish, wild things which sprung from nowhere when reality came undone for one thousand-year-long moment...
On this page, I plan to expose the belly of the beast and reveal much of my thought process and progress/construction concepts. Further, completed panels and pages will be featured before my Patrons first, prior to being released to the rest of the world. I expect this to be a journey as grueling as it will be fulfilling, and I look forward to you joining me on this grand adventure.Why Patreon?
Metakuss: Unending Days is a big story, taking place in a big world with big characters, big monsters... and it all takes some big effort, too. The kind of effort takes time and money, to pay bills, to buy food, to keep me going. Unlike other methods of creative development, Patreon allows me to connect to you in a more direct way, to let you see what I'm up to and decide for yourself if it's something you want to see more of. If you do, please tip! The good thing about this platform is that it does not rely on big commitments from an investor and forces me to create at their whim; you are the investor here, and you decide if this is worthwhile for you. All I ask is small monthly donations to keep me going; two bucks, five bucks, or whatever you feel like... Every small bit counts and adds up. With your help, I can realize this fervid dream of mine and create a nice little place for us to escape into, a place full of wonder and danger; unmovable heroes, and unstoppable monsters.A Little About Me
I'm a lifelong professional artist, writer, and a fresh dad currently hailing from San Antonio, TX. I've traveled near and far and had the privilege of meeting people in several continents, cultures, and walks of life, each with their own unique perspective on our world and the human experience. I've seen war, peace, love, hate, fear, hope, sorrow, and joy. I draw inspiration from (and take great interest in) nature, history, psychology, mythology, long 'what if' conversations, and metal music. As far back as I can remember, I've enjoyed fantasy/sci-fi art, literature, movies, shows, and games, and found these little perspective shifts on our reality can not only provide an immense reprieve from the harshness of the human condition, but also teach us a great deal about each other and about ourselves.
