Hello! My name is Orion Petitclerc, a.k.a. OrionSTARB0Y (Google it...I dare ya). I am many things, but primarily I am a fiction writer and secondly a character designer. I say "character designer" because I am not an all-around (comic-styled) illustrator; I'm still practicing other aspects such as environments, tech, and beasts. I aspire to be a comic book writer, my main project being The Mad Mummy
which you can learn more about at TheMadMummy-FanClub
My style and focus is in superheroes and American Comic Books. My main influences are Venom from Spider-Man, Todd McFarlane, J.R.R. Tolkein, and just about anything superhero related.
At this time I do not take art commissions, for I am not yet confident in my artistic abilities to sell anything.
