I was asked to share my ups and downs about being creative during these strange times for an article from the Nerdist. Click here for the full story!
Strange times abound. I've been occupied with juggling a script for a new graphic novel and my body's recent urge to sleep through everything. Still, the deadline moves ever closer... and the struggle to be a little productive during a crisis continues.
I came across this artist meme today and I wanted to do it! I used to do a lot of these back in my teen Deviantart days, before I moved to Tumblr and Twitter. Now that I have my own space to indulge in these activities, I may as well! It's good to have some fun now.(more…)
I get this species of art question so often that I now think it's worth making a blog post to answer it (for posterity). The question usually goes something like this:
"How did you find your style of art?"
Which is a valid question. Unfortunately, this is a question with extremely vague and mundane answers. Note: these answers are very rooted to my particular development as an artist, though bits and pieces can be applied generally.(more…)
On March 31st, 2013, I published the first ever page of my webcomic, officially debuting The World in Deeper Inspection.
I was 18 then: fresh out of SPM, and at the start of my gap half-year. While my friends and schoolmates almost immediately transitioned into Pre-U Lyfe (A-Levels, IB, STPM, ADP - wow those names sound so irrelevant now) I was adamant about getting a few months off - not to travel since I didn't have the money then lol, but to work on my passion project: an artsy, ambitious magnum-opus webcomic about a Jersey Devil detective and his friends.

Currently writing and drawing a whole bunch of stuff. Is a nerd for all things spooky and historical.
