Music Therapist with a side passion for writing and doodling ridiculous Pokemon comics.

I've been drawing on and off for pretty much all of my life. Art isn't my main passion, but it is something I love. Over the years, I've developed a bunch of different tricks of the trade, and am currently in the process of making my own Nuzlocke adventure comic, "Time On My Side."

I try to reply to every comment I can. Feel free to message me or send me a note if you have an idea for art or just something kind or constructive to say, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. See you around dA!

Wrote some important stuff! Check the new journal.
It's been quite a while, hasn't it?

Let's get straight to the important part: Time On My Side can't continue. The time and effort it took in relation to everything else I wanted to get done and the general lack of motivation to do it as time passed got to me. I loved working on the project, but sometimes you need to recognize when something is over. Looking back, the eventual direction of the story and characters were passable, but not something I wanted to keep making.

So what now?

I've been doing a lot since I vanished from here. Composition, arrangements, building my music therapy program at work, and a whole lot of theater. I've built a few worlds for D&D and started DMing my own homebrew campaign with some friends. Life has, for the most part, been very kind to me.

My DA page may go through some changes. I've had a lot of ideas floating around in my head. I know that pursuing creative avenues is something that keeps me both productive and content. In the process of world-building and character creation, I've really latched onto a love of writing. So I'm going to write. I might draw a few things here and there that work alongside whatever I've been doing. I might even post the art or snippets of writing on here. We'll see how active I am. I'm not sure at this point.

I know that whatever path lies before me, it isn't going to be an easy one. There's going to be failures and slumps of time without progress and all sorts of unforeseeable trouble. But damn it, I have some stories to tell and I want to tell them.

To everyone who has followed me over the years: my sincerest thanks. Your commentary and encouragement have helped encourage and inspire me to create stories and characters that are memorable and captivating. I only hope it gets better from here.

See you guys around!
