10 years of Carciphona


10 years ago, I started working on the first version of my current webcomic Carciphona, titled “Blackbird” back then. I did it all for myself and for fun, knowing there is no way the quality of my work could amount to anything important. Little would I know that 10 years later the story would take such a drastic turn, and that I would receive the support I have now in order to continue drawing, and even printing, this story.

Thank you all so much for helping me get to where I am right now! Carciphona is one of the dearest things to my heart, regardless of its success, and I am lucky to have your support to be able to continue to work on it. We’ve come so far together, and I can’t wait to show you all the things that are to come!


You can read carciphona for free at:

Full process video, layered psd files will be available for my May 18-31 patrons at!

Wow, I remember Carciphona! I have forgotten about it over the years. Today, I saw this art being used at youtube and I got curious because the art was beautiful, so I clicked on the link that led me here. I'm glad that I did. I can go and read! I can't believe it's been ten years for you. I don't know how long since I last remember about it, but I'm happy that your webcomic is still going!!! (Maybe it's more than ten years now because I have no clue when you uploaded this art. xD) Now, I will go through your links to see if I can buy and help support you too!

Same here, I came from youtube and now I will read Carciphona :D

I'm thinking of the meme, where it shows all the guys from pewdiepies Minecraft playthrough, sitting with Sphen. Sadly, they are all dead in the second part, because Sphen has to be alive till the series is over.

You are the best! I simple can't express in words how much of my life you are responsible for changing - for best. From inspirations to... some really personal things that you drawings helped me to understand and overcome, really, you are the best.
