My Bio
I started doing artwork with American comics, especially X-men where I would redraw the covers in an attempt to copy them. My Freshman year in High School, around 1990, the local art teacher invited some art students down from what I believe was the Columbus College of Art and Design. I didn't take art class for the first two years of High School, since I did not really consider myself to be an artist, but a student from CCAD gave my friend a color copy of a drawing of an anime style girl, hand painted like an animation cell that he had done. For the first time I found an art style that I just could not seem to copy like I could with American comics. That frustration lead me to attempt the style and to find more art like it. Thus my style became forever stuck in the Anime and Manga style of Japan.

Funny part is that years later, I bought an art book at Otakon and found the exact same picture that inspired me from the guy that had visited the school from CCAD. The drawing was a girl from Gall Force done by Kenichi Sonoda. So I had been inspired by a guy that had copied from the real thing. Real world is strange sometimes! =D

Hi followers and fellow Deviants!  Just stopping in after a long hiatus to say that I'm still alive! My artsy side has taken a huge backseat to my youtube and twitch channels! I still write now and then, but I've lost a lot of inspiration for writing ever since most of the people that used to make short films from my stories have basically stopped doing any real work with transformation material. This was expected since transformation in a low budget scenario is almost never going to be that great, though I had high hopes for a few of the sites I used to frequent (and pay for custom work from). Alas, they've moved away from my interests, an
