My Bio

Greetings, Mortals to my humble page.


Who am I

I'm a successful conservative Libertarian, egoist millionaire, and aloof recluse living in the City of Bozeman in the south-east hills 5 minutes from Downtown. My wife and I went from $10K in pocket to where we are now in 10yrs, God bless the American Dream!


Modern Nobleman

I'm a real life petty Nobleman, I'm a seated manorial Laird in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and my wife is a Lady of the same place. I'm a Lord of England, non sitting, and minor Knight from Alconbury manor and most interesting a Baron of Sealand, with deeded barony. These are REAL minor noble titles, with admitting Sealand is not recognized by many nations and has a notorious reputation I think it's fun.

I also own an registered acre of the Moon, so as you walk the night, let my radiant light bathe your skin and illuminate your path.


Religion and Culture

I'm a pious Traditional Catholic artist (and horror artist) of German/Irish decent with a love for Pre Vatican II Catholicism and the many eastern orthodox sects as well. My interest in Christianity is through a mostly medieval lens, and I practice both traditional Catholic mysticism with some THAVMA and medieval to renaissance Christian Theurgy.


The good Prior is an ordained Minister in the AMM and the ULC as well as been nominated for Sainthood as well with the ULC (Universal Life Church). He has been suggested as the Patron Saint of Independent sailors and would be sailors in spirit for the Principality of Sealand.


Family

I've been with my amazing wife since 89. I'm a diabetic, with Cirrhosis of the liver and my mood moves with my blood sugar. We don't attend church, but maintain a home chapel. I pray every day.


We have no children, as we both are too selfish and codependent with each-other that we realized a child would just be a distraction to us. We dealt with children as children, why deal with them now?


We are madly in love and best friends and just prefer the company of each-other.


My wife and I own our own company and own a few of pieces of property in Bozeman where we live. Our store can be found on Main Street and we live a humble yet opulent life in our dream house, Arkham Manor. We own two other homes in Boxeman and a 10 acres outside in my hunting grounds.


Work and Play

I'm an artist and a gamer and look to soon publish some RPG supplements (Mostly based on Lovecraft under my side company Arkham Antiquities). Currently we are concentrating on getting our Hyborian Collection, of functional prop weapons, and gear from our home foundry and smithy up. Health issues though though keep complicating things.


I make a very good living running an unconnected corporation so making a profit in the publishing/propmaking industry is unimportant, it's more of a labor of love than anything else. I expect to make money....but profits are just gravy to my primary income.

That was of course before Covid and the collapsing economy of 2021-23

What is Arkham Antiquities

It will be a publisher of Lovecraftian RPG weapons, props, adventures and supplements for ANY game based on H.P. Lovecrafts writing and works in common as well as those of R.E. Howard.


A prop house and art house of Cthuliana and esoteric art.


Much much more...


Style

I'm developed my own style I'll get a drawing to where I basically want, make copies and experiment adding on so as not to destroy my progress, scanning and re-scanning as I add layers. It adds depth and eases my nerves.


I see art as a way of life, I sculpt and carve stone,plaster,clay,wood and whatever can be worked. I draw and paint. Most of my painting is using medieval methods with egg tempera paints that I make.


I carve soapstone molds to cast pewter jewelry, buckles, pilgrims badges and other medieval and RPG themed items. I work bone from dinosaur to human, and ivory from narwhal to mammoth.


I do Blacksmithing and foundry casting, I do primitive 1920s style "electronics".


I'm a carpenter and woodworker, I make furniture and can pretty much build anything given the time. That said I'd rather hire others as it gives me more time to spend with the wife.


Other

I own a large collection of Firearms, from a Broomhandled Mauser to a Tommygun to AK47s to AR15s and an AR10. I collect militaria, antique books and anything related to Call of Cthulhu or R.E. Howard. I collect Silver coins and keep it in my safety deposit box.


I hate noise, and thus the suburbs as many in the suburbs show little class in controlling barking dogs, or worse their yelling idiotic children. (Parasites who only raise property taxes by spawning more, lol) .


I hate the suburbs, the culture or lack of it as it debases the soul and brings a crudeness to my life. This is why I moved from the Suburbs to the Hills in true roman use of the word.


Other men can be stacked as cord wood in the city or suburbs drowning in the mire of clamor, a septic tank containing the din of the masses...but I'm an Artist and need spacious and broad vistas. When I need the toile...city it's just 5 minutes away. With zero backups.

Book Review "Through Dry Places" Lovecraftian Horror by D.H. Gutierrez Under the water of a Texas lake lies a Spanish mission (San Lazaro) and small community. Sunken and lost to time under the dark waters above. Now a drought lowers the waters exposing the mission and preserved ruins once again. Dried out now under the hot Texas sun. A struggling YouTuber, Matthew has fallen on hard times losing his sponsor and seeks to revive his channel. He has discovered that San Lazaro is now able to be reached, as the lake has dried up and no one yet, has explored it. He decides he will be the first, and it should be simple..people love urban exploration videos. This will be no problem to get in, film it and get home by nightfall, edit and post. Easy Peasy. "Through Dry Places" is a novella of under 70 pages that is highly atmospheric, dense and cinematic. A modern tale set in rural Texas in a long forgotten town with a hidden secret, even older. The story story is set in

Twitter is a Great Place. As its another medium to connect with the horror and pulp fantasy community I relate to. From game companies to professional writers to YouTubers and fellow artists. it is a great place to connect. The politics are toxic and lots of people are looking for hook ups but these situations occur everywhere online. Especially when one displays their wealth. Nevertheless it's a great place, and recently an author is sending me a free copy of his new book, autographed of course for me to review. I enjoy talking to my favorite writers of Roleplaying games and the established people in the hobby. it's a cool place. I'll be uploading here on DA in the next few days on various arts and projects as I like to do a little of everything. See ya!
