My Bio
I was born in Poland, raised in Canada, and recently completed a PhD in History at the University of Cambridge. So I guess I'm very cosmopolitan.

I've been creating digital art for over a decade, and drawing for over two. I like to think I'm pretty good at the former and (at best) reasonably acceptable at the latter. I would dabble in writing as well, had I the time and energy. I'm mostly a comic book fan artist; I've done some originals, but this is mostly a hobby and a way to pay tribute to the series and characters I love. I started as a photomanipulator and that's still my strength, but I have also since done some 3D, some pencilling, some digital inking and colouring... the lot. I sketch occasionally but rarely find it good enough to be worth posting. Most of what I have posted to dA is mixed media, primarily photomanipulated 3D renders with many digitally painted elements. If you enjoy them, please let me know. Like many artists, I am tremendously insecure at heart and thus crave faves and comments. ;)

(Cause doing a journal update every two years is a perfectly reasonable pace...) But yeah, I suppose I should take a sec to update this thing now that DC has actually (godsforbid!) brought back the character I previously bitched about them ignoring. So: go read BATMAN ETERNAL. Not only cause it brings back Stephanie (Spoiler) Brown, my favourite comics character, but because it's just generally rather good stuff. You win this round, DC. re: Art Stuff, there's nothing in the pipeline at the moment since I kinda haven't been in the mood lately. I would like to get something done before Christmas, but the muse will have to whack me over the h

So: I recently sent DC Comics a somewhat, er, lengthy note outlining my current dissatisfaction (to put it mildly) with their product. I've semi-randomly decided I should post it to the Interwebz somewhere, and since I don't have a proper blog, I figured it'd have to be here. I've edited it a bit for length. If anyone actually reads this (ha! like that'll happen) and is curious to see the whole thing, drop me a line. --- I am no longer buying DC comics. There are several reasons for this. In part, I'm unhappy with DC's creative direction. I was not happy with the loss of the marriage of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, or with the downplaying of
