I've kinda disappeared for a bit, and wanted to write a little journal why I've left Facebook, Twitter and kind of my online persona. If you care to read, down below you will find my reasons. I hope you're well, and will try to post more art soon. Feel free to discuss below your opinions on the matter, and I'll try to reply. My answer goes far beyond "I've just been busy!" and maybe you too will connect with how I've felt:
The other day I received an email from a fellow follower of my work, asking the question of why I left Facebook. Not that everyone should know my daily activities, but if you haven't noticed, a couple of months ago I had deleted my FB in order to focus on my property LMS, as it's shaping up for film, and the next book in the series, LMS: Welcome to America
Now before I continue, this is strictly my opinion. I know people like to get angry online, so if you disagree with it, you have every right to

Why we fall. - Edited with full postWhy we fall. - Edited with full post2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Art by Allison Smith.
"Why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up."
One of my favorite lines from Batman Begins. However, there are moments where it's rather difficult to get back up, and sometimes we require that one special kick in the ass.
From each tumble, we learn a valuable lesson. A year or so ago, I had hit a personal wall that was proving too difficult to force through. Art, which is usually front and center, took a back sea--and while we've all had art blocks--that wasn't the only issue.
It began with my roommate of two years, whom had decided it was time to move else where. With such a sudden interruption, I had to find a new home and in less than 30 days.
Having also been through a bleak breakup months prior, and finding myself with no pending freelance work and

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

The Muse AbidesAsk any artist about “emptiness” and they’ll tell you about the constant recurring nightmarish emptiness they must face down almost every day as a part of their vocation: the blank space that they must fill. Whether he’s a painter facing a blank canvas or she’s a poet facing a blank computer screen, the blank space awaiting transformation at the hand of the artist can be the loneliest and cruelest place on earth.The Muse Abides3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

Cthulhu is Still Calling

Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq
Dark Souls 2 Review (minor spoilers)The LegacyDark Souls 2 Review (minor spoilers)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's no secret that I'm biased when it comes to Souls games, I was one of the few that played Demon's Souls back when hardly anyone knew about this peculiar game. It was dark, dreary and unforgiving and we loved every second of it.
Then came Dark Souls, which expanded on the ideas of Demon's Souls, fixing some problems, creating some new ones. It was a memorable game, full of weird NPCs and unique areas for you to explore. It attained a robust PvP community over time and even made it to PC after a while. By then, the Souls series gained fame and notoriety for being a complex, difficult series that has much to give if you learn to play by its rules.
Then the sequel, Dark Souls II, was announced and a new director stepped in to try and recreate the alchemy that made the first two.
Dark Souls II has big shoes to fill, it will take time and a lot of player feedback for us to know how it truly compared to the first two. The game has a strong presence b

Tell us about you. What would you like for us to know about you?
There's not much to tell about me. I'm pretty much a semi-normal guy like most people. I do have Asperger's however, which means the only movie star I truly identify with is Benedict Cumberbatch. I have a bone-deep love of sci-fi and little fantasy, and a passion for writing. I'm also a xenophiliac, and before you all go 'EEEEWWWWW', that' means I like strange and alien things. The unusual attracts me, though not too unusual if you please. Anyway, I pretty much live on two foodstuffs: pasta and chicken, which I cook myself. I'm working on being more independent and will soon be moving out (oh the horror).
