choo choo I’m an engine

Good now that that’s out of the way.

Currently I’m a concept artist for games but I also write a fair bit on the side. (By a fair bit I mean I have too many stories and too little time to write them all) I love space, science fiction, machines, robots, what have you. I love fantasy, too. And humans. Especially their beautiful, complex, fragile minds.

Suffice it to say, concept artist doesn’t exactly entail as much free time as I would like, so updating my work can get… Sporadic, for lack of a better term. But I enjoy writing as much as I do painting and creating, and I’ll try my hardest not to let any of my running stories stagnate.

I do suffer from a bit of memory loss, and for a while there FF was really weird and didn’t send me any email notifications, so I deeply apologize if I never respond to something; chances are it slipped my mind to reply, or else the great wide terrible internet was hungry that day. Either way, I’m open to critique and general chatter so don’t be afraid to send me a message if you want.

I wish everyone who drops by here the best of days.

Wrong Place, Wrong Time
There it was: in the mirror. Behind him. Staring without eyes and grinning without a mouth and laughing in its voiceless way like thunder rolling over an ancient plain. To say he was scared was trivial indeed: all he could do was clutch his hands and sob.

A Meeting, of Sorts
It approached him on legs of steel and flesh, its mechanical wings chiming as it walked. It was strange, it was other-wordly, and it was alien, but above all else it was sad. And the man could not fathom why. A vignette.
