Pirates in real ...

When sitting down to write or sketch out a comic episode I reach for my 300+ song playlist, sit back and let the music take over my imagination. Whether it was through friends, Spotify or other online recommendations, I have a playlist set aside for each creative project I am ...

Horror - Immersion and the Slow Burn

Banes at 12:00AM, Oct. 15, 2020



I just started the Netflix series called “The Hanting of Bly Manor”.

It's hard to say how it's going to turn out in the end, since I'm just at the beginning. But overall so far, I'm enjoying the thing. There are many unanswered questions already, and ...

Character Design Brainstorming: The Monster Among Us

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Oct. 10, 2020




We live in a world of routine, predictability, and pedestrian problems. (2020 doesn't count. Much.)

Who doesn't love a happy ending?

Eh, there are a good few people I've met that just turn their noses up at happy endings, because apparently according to their opinion, happy endings are for the weak.

But for all other normal people, a happy ending is a good ...

Horror in Pieces

Banes at 12:00AM, Oct. 1, 2020

You
