My Bio

I like creating strange, new worlds and often draw or paint pictures to help myself and others to visualize them better. I try to focus on daily life within my worlds as much as the more dramatic things, in order to make them feel more alive and less like mere settings for stories.

A lot of writing and research goes into the world-building process as well, so new uploads can be a bit sparse from time to time.

Much of my inspiration comes from the history and mythology of many different cultures, as well as the natural world.

Worlds currently in development

Adynia; a high fantasy world based on Antiquity, especially the hellenistic period (323-31 BCE).

Dragonía; another high fantasy world, but based on the bronze age.

Gaetius' World; a non-magical (somewhat) dark fantasy world that combines Old World iron age cultures with various cultures of the Americas.
