The Artist's Call (Creator)
I wonder how many strangers have fallen in love
unknowingly, by connecting through art?
I feel I might be in love with you,
but how is that possible if I don’t know you?
We won’t ever meet. You won’t ever know my name,
but I will always know yours, and through your art,
I feel I might have an idea about you.
Or I definitely have an idea about
what racing dreams can keep you going at night.
I have an idea about what makes your heart pound
and your voice break, what makes tears
and sobs wrack you internally,
what devastates you by yourself in your room.
I know you through what inspires you to create,
and I’ve certainly fallen in love with the strength and care
with which you do your work.
I’ve fallen in love with the way your spine bends forward,
the shameless intensity of your confidence,
and your earthquake making laughter.
The kind currently causing my own heart to leap
in pulsing radiance every single time I hear it.
I do love you. Even though you’

my heavy sigh
causes a quake in the flame
of the candle at my bedside.
it thrashes madly, then quietly settles
into a gentle quiver,
hugging the wick closer
shrinking from its shimmering brilliance
to the smallest wisp of exhaustion.

Hello! From what I see is that your rendering of a dragon is wonderful! Your anatomy is very well done and realistic, the extra details...


Hey y'all. I had to take down a few things because some big stuff is coming up. Though the process has been slow it will totally be worth it! Getting ready for some amazing things coming up! 
Style Experiment Japanese to American
This was just a fun thing I did for myself. Drawing Japanese anime characters in different American cartoon styles was a lot of fun especially looking at all the old cartoons I used to watch as a kiddo. 
I was inspired to draw the climax of "A Wizard of Earthsea". I love that Ursula Le Guin reminded us that we are beings of light and darkness.
Read out Switchblade and Stain's personal codes of morality. Don't miss what's on their minds at

Current Residence: Narnia

Favourite genre of music: All kinds but country T_T

Favourite style of art: Any, mine is a mutt

Shell of choice: Turtle shells, they are sturdy and you can put stickers on them

Wallpaper of choice: I paint my walls, wallpaper tends to peel

Skin of choice: my skin, it may be pale but it holds my organs in pretty nicely

Favourite cartoon character: Scooby Doo and Shaggy, Scooby Dooby Doo!
