For a few years, I've been developing my story lines and characters, building universes but I felt lacking in illustrative abilities to bring them to pulp. After many failed starts and disappointments, my decision came down to taking art courses. As a result, my skills became much better than expected. Though I've quite a long way to go, I can now at least bring my stories into the tangible world by my own hand.

Every day, it feels better. When the first book is done, this is the first place it will be posted. It is my intention to make it one of many.
