RANDOM

Where various illustrations, figures, and other minor pieces end up

The pencil-drawn outline for the cover of 'Inner Expanses'. 

The first hand drawn piece that I have made in literally years. Probably close to a decade.

I'm much more used to digital art and photo manipulation, but I think that it came out well.

The current cover of 'Inner Expanses', but without the text. You can see more of Cortex's sinister form, similar to the original cover (above).

I like the vibe this gives off. A sinister yellow eye peering at you from the abyss.

Kind of has a Lovecraftian feel, which was the intent.

Beholder of the dark.

This is the very first figure in my "Of the Sky, Of the Sea, and Of the Stones" series. 

I depicts a metaphor in a literal manner. For scholars in this story, when one question is answered, two more often appear. This gave rise to a saying, that refers to this notion as a "metaphysical hydra".

The second figure in my newsletter series (Of the Sky, Of the Sea, and Of the Stones).

This one shows a cheeky wood troll who is guarding a door. This odd organism inhabits the island of Agalloch, where there are many like it who seem very fond of the isle's architecture.

The crest for the Global Lore Researchers Union. An organization in my Sky, Sea, and Stone universe that comprises of many academic individuals from all over the world. 

With different chapters located upon many different islands, the GLRU are a strong force for education and science.

Their crest has representations for the three Sources of the world. The origins of all known matter and life.

"One such Spark, but a mere fraction of Order, became the source for all we know upon Okeanós. While spinning and soaring through the many violent tendrils of Chaos, this particular Spark willed for it to stop; for the madness and rushing of void mixed with explosions of light to cease. So it forced the chaotic clouds around itself to shift into a pattern. It gave reason and rhythm to the matter and energy, previously untamed, until the void and light coarsed together, in harmony, at the weaving will of this Spark. Near the bottom of the page sharing this information, it is mentioned that there was a ‘God’ who had succumbed to a Chaos-stricken madness following the learning of these details. How they transferred the information, and what became of them, is not mentioned until the reference section, which I shall get to a bit later, as they warrant explanation as well..."
