My Bio
About the Author/Artist:

The author/artist lives an uneventful life under an assumed name in a small river town near the northeastern coast of nowhere special. To stave off the existential dread of a life lived in quiet desperation, the author/artist enjoys gaming, writing and dicking around in Photoshop.

I'm self-taught, never had formal art training. Sometimes my stuff sucks, and I'm ok with that. Gives me plenty of opportunities to learn from mistakes.

Old Man Daud: A Novel

“Cursed Daud hides in the world and lives still.”

For nearly twenty years, Daud has lived an uneventful life under an assumed name in the port town of Baleton, his killing days far behind him and his Void abilities dried to ash in his blood.

On a cold night in 1855 during the Month of Rain, the smell of the Void unexpectedly fills the air and Daud’s quiet life is torn apart by a horrific attack at the hands of an incomprehensible enemy.

Daud once again has the attention of the Outsider, but for reasons that he never could have predicted.

Forced out of retirement, an aging Daud must face his greatest enemy yet – an enemy that threatens his life, his sanity and the very fabric of reality itself.

Daud jots things in his journal as they come to him - hasty half-sentences, lists, reminders, ideas for formulas to try in his lab, words he wants to speak but can't, bits of prose or poems - sometimes he finishes them, and sometimes not. Often for D...

From: Old Man Daud - Aftermath (epilogue - Lurk) For a long time, Billie Lurk sat on the dock and looked out over the water as the sun rose, holding the note in her hand resisting the urge to yet again read the seemingly impersonal words jotted on th...

Your stories and character designs are top notch and deserve to be made into tv series like game of thrones or video games like elder scrolls.
Question, is your work in any way inspired by Cedric Peyravernay?
Absolutely - if I had an iota of that talent and ability, I could die a happy woman. What I do is not much more than the art equivalent of Cedric Peyravernay fanfic.
