My Bio
Occasionally, I draw robots and turn them into a game. This is currently happening.

My name is Moriah Geer-Hardwick, but I may change it to Moriarty. Professor Moriarty.

I am compulsively creative, which is annoying.

One time I went to college for four years to meet girls. I received a bachelor's degree in English and married a girl named Jenny. Nice.

When I am not drawing I professionally scare children. This is true.

I once fought a bear with a spoon. This is not true, but it makes me wonder what a bear would be doing with a spoon.

Grrr... So ready to draw. Enough with the not drawing.



I've been writing more, drawing less lately. I really admire people who can do both fluently. It feels like I only have enough creative fuel to burn through one at a time.



I love line art. I love drawing it. I love looking at it. Give me a choice between simple black lines and photorealistic color, and I'll choose the lines. Give me a choice between hand drawn animation and live action, and I'll choose animation. My brain fails to recognize a hierarchy of information based on the complexity of the icon. In fact, seemingly the purer the form, the clearer and faster my response is to it. Unfortunately, my little prejudice is proving a limitation. Not everyone shares my attraction. Most apparently prefer life in color. So, I've started coloring. If that wasn't challenging enough, in coloring I've encountered anot

Many thanx for the watch. :)
Hi, I found your flash fiction piece on EveryDayFiction. I tried to contact you via Twitter or Facebook, but regardless of which icon on your website that I pressed, it either took me to a page on your website or here. 

Anyway, I'm just here to ask if I could feature your piece (along with a short review and a link to your website) on my blog, undertheslush.blogspot.com
Oh, hi! Sorry about that. I am totally ok with that. Cheers!
