An in-progress, urban fantasy Graphic Novel

" As a powerful caster and experienced thief, Nox is determined to get the hottest commodity on the black market: asterite. Unfortunately, the only facility with an ample supply of the controversial drug is the heavily guarded Gemini Hospital.

But he isn't the only one after asterite, and he unexpectedly finds himself protecting the very hospital he sought to steal from. His show of power lands him a job as Commander of Core Security, forcing him to watch his every step as he tries to gain the trust hospital director Pendiah Hemera.

Made of Awesome

Check out these lovely people, won't you? <3

Though I am primarily an illustrator at the moment, I aspire to one day
make a living off of creating graphic novels. As you can see, my page is littered
with art from "Midwinter", which is the manga I'm producing with a small band of
awesome people called ReVision Studios :D I am the lead artist and
secondary writer for the project.

All commissions are closed, sorry guys!

if you need to contact me outside of DA, feel free to drop me an e-mail!

I have a Tumblr too: :)


The Kickstarter is funded!!

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 28, 2014, 8:38 AM

Have I ever told you guys how amazing you are? With 10 days to go, the Midwinter Kickstarter is already funded! I LOVE ALL OF YOU! hereletmegiveyouahug

Thanks so much to everyone for their support!

If you haven't pledged yet, were planning to, and really want some of those rewards... there's still time! You have until the campaign ends to get in those orders. :) There are no current plans for stretch goals, but any extra funding will go towards going to more conventions and keeping us afloat!

Does your comic come out yet?

Not yet, unfortunately! The first chapter was supposed to come out last month, but I've been terribly burned out for awhile. We're making progress, but I don't think it'll come until March at this point @_@ (plus we're working on some Kickstarter stuff!) Sorry about that. I'll make a big announcement when it is available though~

wutchu doin on mah page? lol
I found you! Thanks for the commission you did for me... the last one you did at nebkon! I wasn't able to thank you properly, but your work is awesome and I loved it very much. Hope to see you guys next year, definitely will buy your comic next time and probably commission something else, but with more time. X3

No problem! I'm SO glad you liked it! :D I had fun drawing him~ I tried to fit in the dragon wing(s), but it didn't fit well into the composition, so I am sorry that I couldn't D:

We'll definitely be there next year though, I would love it if you stopped by! c:
I'm the creator of Waldo that ~Lady-Manson commissioned fanart from you and I absolutely LOVED IT!! I think he looked perfectly fine and you have no idea how hard I laughed at his expression. You got it SPOT ON.
