Hello! I'm writer and (very) amateur artist, and I'm exactly the sort of sad person that thinks this DevID is hilarious.
I go through phases in my life, usually based around what I'm reading, writing and researching at the time. The current phase is ancient Egypt, and it's lasted on and off for . . . oh . . . twenty-five years. The mania normally lurks below the surface, but I'm currently working on a book involving Egyptian characters and magic, and that gave it an excuse to run wild. Mea culpa.
