Author of The Summer King Chronicles! I write epic young adult fantasy featuring animal characters. And sometimes I draw them, too ;)

Buy my Books:…

I post about gryfon and writing things on my

I post sketches and WIPs on INSTAGRAM:…

And I repost the same stuffs on

And occasionally I put things on the BOOK OF FACE:


Cutlery: DnD Edition
Part of the batch of commissions I took back in November. Aaaahhhh finishing slowly but surely! After this I'm focusing on my own gryfons because I have so many IDEAS.  
This piece is for zero-torne , who is adapting one of his characters for a DnD game.
I'm really pleased with this one and my work on the details and the lines weights. And the kilt, because I rarely draw clothes. Reeeeally striving to level up and bump things to the next level when, before, I might've just called something done.  Thanks for looking, guys! ^_^
Snow day! WoooT! Doing arts today! 
Remember, if you do art of my characters I LOVE TO SEE IT. Please tag me with an @ !!  :heart: I have a growing collection of gryfons and dragons and wolf arts I love to browse to feel inspired :heart: 
These were some digital sketches I did as a warmup a few days ago :D Feel free to download and color or whatnot, IDK. Fun stuff! I referenced cheetahs to get some really fun dynamic action poses :D  What do you think? 

I really want to work on developing a simpler style to play with some character art, almost as if they were going to be animated or used in a graphic novel, so I forced myself to keep these pretty simple. My urge is always to add more detail, lines, and tone. But I think less is more sometimes.

My Patrons got to see these before anyone else! Wanna join the fun? Check it out:
Ten Years
All gryfons, all the time.


Actually I'm proud of the growth I can see here. I think about that one of the left probably taking an hour or two, and the one on the right taking about twenty minutes and being more accurate. Not that speed is at all a measure of skill, but it tells me how much I've learned and how much more confidence I have in my lines and my perception ^___^

Whatcha guys think?
Hallo friends!

Going to Midwest Furfest and being sick for about two weeks has ... obviously put me behind a litttle! Okay, a lot. I'm behind a lot. just keeping swimming!  Swimming Emote :D 

Also started the new part time job, which eats up three days a week. I am still accepting commissions, but you're looking at about a two to three week turnaround probably. 

Current To-do:

1. Watercolor of birb character
2. Drawing for zero-torne 
3. Story for comixqueen 
4. Story & art for DerAnanasKing 

Thanks for understanding! :heart: Fair winds all.

I recently just finished the Summer King Chronicles and the short book of tales, and I was blown away!!!!

Very stellar work.

I have to ask, do you plan on including a glossary in future editions as a reference to the vocabulary of this world, as well as lists of characters, like name, what species they are (and breed, if a griff), and role/relations?

I understand if not if you're worried about spoilers or such.

I think at this point I should because so many people have asked for one XD Maybe a little ... guide or something.
EagleFlyte Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
I'd definitely dig a guide book :)

It makes the world feel so much more real when you get to explore all the structure to it!

Oooo! Links?

I do not post my work anywhere because im afraid of theft. I m currently contacting publishers, any experience with that?
ElementalJess Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, well I wish you luck then!  Yes, I know how to submit to publishers and agents but ultimately I chose to self publish my series.
