Thirtysomething software engineer living happily ever after with the ogre I married. Maker of nifty crap and situationally appropriate mayhem. Overly serious at times, off the zany deep end at others. My brain is a funhouse, and that’s just the way I like it.
What I’m Into
I lift heavy shit. I push sleds. I chin up. I dip. I run. It rocks.
As a kid, I poked at rambling sci-fi stories that never found an end. NaNoWriMo got me back into the joys of fiction, as did fandom. I write rubber reality psychological horror and Three Kingdoms adaptations, from researched historical tales to fanfiction inspired by Dynasty Warriors characterizations. The influence is more of a springboard than a sandbox, allowing a great deal of creative freedom for building characters who have my personal stamp all over them while being true to the roots that other fans know and love.
I was bitten by the fan art bug after a 10-year hiatus from my high school visual arts coursework, and I learned by getting in over my head. My work is like a project car, hammered and reassembled and slowly improving over time. I admire more realistic styles of illustration, and I’m cultivating one of my own.
It all began with the realization that Dynasty Warriors games were loosely based on actual people and events. I started digging for context, and we can guess where that went. The Three Kingdoms era is my first love, but I’m dabbling in ancient Rome and warring states Japan. Yes, you can blame Samurai Warriors for that last one.
I was an addict back in those days of old school Nintendo. I’m not quite as avid now, though I still have my soft spot for certain series and genres.
Twin tabbies, brother and sister. Spoiled rotten just as they should be.
