Fantasy Fiction: Setchulu

January 7, 2009

Here’s a short sample of my fantasy style. This is an unfinished piece, right now just a bit of atmosphere, characterization, and hint of a plot. The setting is a city called Setchulu on the world of Lochre, which is the same world that my novel, which has no title as of yet, is set […]

Underworld: Dechrekhyn

November 15, 2008

Another conceptual sketch.  These are the amphibious dead souls, wallowing in the purgatory called Blouedvelth, bickering with and scrambling over each other for access to bloodroot, which gives them more substance and, when enough is consumed, allows a dechrekhyn to move beyond the swamp of sanguine murk and onto slightly better abodes as they make […]

In the Underworld: Blellivi Trisk

November 15, 2008

Burning the midnight oil tonight; here’s a pencil sketch of a sprawling and towering castle located in the remote regions of an underworld swamp of blood where amphibious dead souls suck and chew on bloodroot, trying to get their fill. If you’d been walking through that wet and drab nightmarish mess for too many hours, […]

Moussa in the Underworld

November 14, 2008

I’m happy to say that I definitely seem to be writing a novel. In it, several characters journey into the underworld. The bidi–sketches of which I’ve posted on this blog before–play a part in that, as gatekeepers to the underworld, although they also have a complex existence of their own. I originally thought that I […]

My Imaginary Fantastical Planet is a Racist Epithet? Fuck.

July 31, 2008

So it has come to my attention that the word “ubda” is a kind of racist slang for a ghetto African American, somehow akin to calling someone a honkey-ass cracker.  At least that’s what this urban dictionary tells me: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Ubda%20Scum Taking this into consideration, I am probably going to be dropping the Ubda from Lo-Ubda […]


July 29, 2008

I am writing a story that caricatures the voyage of Columbus, painting the historical legend as a myth in gothic and day-glo colors.  Part of the plot involves a bunch of dark skeletal undead wizardly folk who enchant Colonizer Finn Columbo’s behemoth of a sailing vessel, the Santa Materia, with the power to go-go swiftly […]

Books, Books, Books

I just signed up for goodreads, if anyone wants to get in on this book recommendation/sharing thing.  Go ahead and take a look at what kind of books I read and what my favorites are by clicking here.

Horrible Androgony Baby

July 5, 2008

With fireworks detonating all around me and the windows open to bring in the cool breeze and the sulfur smoke tonight, I’ve been scratching out practice anatomy drawings at my desk.  This is not really one of them, but a deliberate disfiguration, a nightmare fantasy of androgynous infant proportions.  Behold:   HORRIBLE ANDROGONY BABY!!!  

Journalistic Exercise in Dorkdom

June 23, 2008

I’ve got another piece up on Associated Content.  This one is particularly nerdy–social commentary on an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game, if ya didn’t know). Laugh Your Way Through the Grind

Nibbles Gigglefoot

June 17, 2008

I’ve started writing some things over at associatedcontent.com under the pseudonym of Nibbles Gigglefoot.  It’s light reading if you have a minute, and your page view of my articles at ac could help add up to a slow trickle of extra income for me and mine.  So, if you’ve got a moment, do a brother […]
