This was one of my art entries for the Phoenix Gate Anthology and the accompanying illustration for my story entry, "Rising Son." [link]

Since the story didn't make it into the anthology, I asked for its illustration to be withdrawn. (It bothered me to have one in without the other.) *shrugs* Call it artistic license. My other story entry *did* make it into the PGA and copies of the book can be purchase at Gathering 2004 in Montreal.

Inks and Prisma greytone markers.

I don't understand something... What happened to Graeme?

In "Rising Son" [link] , Graeme refers to a Space Spawn attack on London in the future. He loses Lucy and two of their children in the attack and his wings are severely damaged because of it. The Space Spawn thing was something Greg Weisman dreamed up for a Gargoyle spin-off series.

Does this story trail off from the main Timedancer stories?

Ariana is Brooklyn's daughter from The Gargoyles Saga, which can be found here: [link]
I was one of the founding members and I wrote stories for the 1st and 2nd seasons, as well as doing a lot of the original character sketches.
