My Bio
Visual Artist and writer with passionate emphasis on graphic novels.

Originally from the Caribbean but given the mixed nature of my heritage, I love aspects of all cultures (especially the food, clothes, music and drama!)

I have illustrated published works like Here Comes Heaven , 31 Healing Miracles of Jesus for the Sid Roth's It's Supernatural show, and the Silver Foxes YA fiction series by Michelay.

I actually wanted to be a vet when I was small but I liked art more. You may notice I post lots of anthropomorphic art (animals with human qualities and proportions). I doesn't mean I'm terrible at drawing other things (thanks Fine Art degree). I just grew up on 90s cartoons and video games. These influences shaped the flow and style I now carry. My Creator and life experiences do the rest.

...Also, it's just cool when a character can fly or break down walls and it's perfectly normal in their world. :giggle: Animals also have a rich heritage in history, theology, folklore and mythology.

Feel free to kick back, relax and enjoy a digital cup of tea! :tea: :gallery:

DBZ Observations

DBZ Observations

Random observations after re-watching Dragon Ball Z: It's interesting because in the Bible the hair is described as the glory/crown of the man (but mostly covering of the woman, 1 Corinthians 11:14-15) and that's the part that lights up for a super saiyan. Shaving off hair in the bible denotes shame or grieving (natural baldness is just old age). Habakkuk 3:4 says power comes out of God's hands (Habakkuk 3:4) and his power comes out of his people's hands when they pray. Huh! It's like this is something humans know by instinct and we put it in our shows. Most DBZ power beams come out of the hands! Sources: "His coming is as brilliant as the sunrise. Rays of light flash from his hands, where his awesome power is hidden." Habakkuk 3:4 "Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him, but if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her? For her hair is given to her for a covering." Corinthians 11:14-15 DBZ © Akira Toriyama

Channel 3 Patreon

Channel 3 Patreon

Channel 3 Patreon is now up! Reporter Rorie Adams is very hot tempered and focused on her job. She is committed to reporting the truth because she believes the public deserves to know it... even if it means ripping into gossip columns, stepping on the toes of crime syndicates or butting heads with local law enforcement. All of this while she battles a painful past that forever changed the course of her life. Rated M for mature themes. We are now up to 7 patrons on Patreon and 1 new monthly pledge on PayPal (thank you!) I am opening up these platforms in case you like my content, want the inside scoop, and desire to support its publication. The Primary Project is Channel 3 with Lost Age as the runner up. These are graphic novels. I plan to post the first chapters or volumes as webcomics and ultimately sell volume downloads and printed books. I'm also working on making it prettier with nice links, banners and buttons. Your support will free me up to: create content

I was looking for an old piece in your gallery and didn't see it. I think it was a birthday gift for Mich. If I recall correctly, it was a bunch of her characters in a circular arrangement. Is it back up and I missed it?

Thanks. I was looking for it because I seem to recall there being an illustration of Kiriaine.

I've been re-reading the series for the first time in years. I'm on the final book (I know it's still got old canon stuff) so that's why I was looking.

Oh sure! I can re-post that no problem. Here ya go!

Thank you. Clearly my memory was faulty. I thought I'd seen Kirie somewhere. Hm. Still, awesome picture, so great to see!
