My Bio
by the ridge 2019

Hi. I'm a castaway from another planet, where people are made of watercolor paint.

Currently, I'm looking for my lost spaceship. In the meanwhile, I dwell in stories, spoken, sung, written and illustrated.

“If you hear a voice within you say "you cannot paint", then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” - Vincent van Gogh

“If you have a story that seems worth telling, and you think you can tell it worthily, then the thing for you to do is to tell it [...]” - Dashiell Hammett

“Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot.” - Neil Gaiman

“That's pretty much the rule for any art - that it starts from a point of view, that the person who creates the art has reference points, has influences, has inspirations, you borrow from all these things. And if your personality is strong enough, whatever you borrow - beg, borrow or steal - will still sound like you.” - Steven Wilson

“[...] when you do this work it’s like an apprenticeship. You have a love for the work of music as something that drives you, but then there’s no one to teach you how to find your own unique potential.” - Lisa Gerrard

“Talent is a spooky thing, and it has a way of announcing itself quietly, but firmly when the right time comes. Like certain addictive drugs, talent comes as a friend, long before you realize it is a tyrant.” - Stephen King

“Writing is easy; all you have to do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until the drops of blood form on your forehead.” – Gene Fowler

“[...] it always feels uncomfortable if you’re doing it right.” – Trent Reznor

“If you don't believe in magic on some level, your art probably sucks. You have to believe in some kind of magic - I don't mean if it's God, or- Whatever you're into - if you're not inspired by, if your heart isn't lifted by some supernatural thing that you've witnessed or you believe in, real or not - you're probably focusing on your looks, your money, something you're focusing on that has no heart.” – Maynard James Keenan


“You shouldn't trust the storyteller; only trust the story.”


Where do I get inspiration from

and if one day we'll meet

you'll find your place to kiss on my face

then you'll make me unforgettable

November was devoid of drawing but filled with writing. I finished my first NaNoWriMo at 50,769 words. Managed to crawl through it, sometimes dragging my belly across the mud, and on rare occasions climbing to great (and dangerous) heights. My project's working title is Primal Energy Outbreak Prevention Top Secret Acts. In a set of short stories/novelettes, it tells of what Aevie had been doing in his youth as an engineer in the Prevention. The main characters are his enforcing team: him, Tower (under her original name that I haven't come up with yet), Saikha, Isaac and Irestos. There are inhumane powers, adventures, new friendships, trouble, life and death situations, responsibilities, hierarchies and power relations. A couple of bad guys appear, and some are worse than Isaac. For most part though, the title of the bad guy is fluctuating across the characters. I've been documenting my progress in an excel sheet to make sure I don't get lost with my word count. It's still a big

Hope you guys are not melting in the heatwaves and keeping safe from the Corona :phew: Congratulations to everyone who made it in time with the Wardrobe task, and those who are still working on it, you're doing great! Now, the time has come for the next task: Wish! Task Four: Wish What is your OC's greatest wish or goal in life? What drives your OC? What is your OC willing to sacrifice for their greatest wish? What keeps them from achieving it? Give your OC a motive, a purpose, a challenge. Illustrate your partner's OC's wish, and describe your OC's wish to them. Note your assigned partner to discuss your OC's wishes and the details of the trade. If you're going solo, illustrate your OC's wish the way you seem fit. Purpose of this task: Portraying motivations and goals of your character. Examples from the previous round: https://www.deviantart.com/oc-training/gallery/70702870/11-4-wish Trade Allotments: @quietuses will draw Andrzej's wish, and @Virgoferra will draw Andrew's
