Site Updates & Patreon

The new website is finally taking shape, give or take a couple of unfinished spots. You can now access the full archive of Mythos under the ‘comics’ section, where all my new projects will also go as they’re completed. You can also check out galleries of my illustration work, which will similarly be updated as we go along.

For those who aren’t aware, the purpose of the new build is to eventually replace the way I used to work on tumblr. New art and writing will be hosted here, so I don’t have to worry about losing years of archives any time a social media site changes its policies, goes dark, or locks me out. You can still follow me in the usual places, but everything will eventually just link back here.

If you miss the smaller sketch type stuff and process posts I used to make, I highly recommend subscribing to my new Patreon. That’s mostly where I’ll be showing off my daily practice and rambling about theory from here on out.

So, hello again! Thanks for your patience while I figured all this out. I really appreciate everyone who’s stuck with me all these years, and I’m looking forward to developing some cool new stuff in a slightly more organised manner.

I’ve been struggling with my output recently , so last week I turned to twitter to give me a prompt for a lightning-fast flash comic. Through a series of 10-minute polls, twitter provided this:

‘an experimental horror about a reptile chasing a dream’

A few hours of intense work later, this is what I produced – I call it O.

Hi tumblr!

I’m currently rebuilding the site into a new hub for my art and writing. All my new content will be hosted here from now on, since external services have failed me so many times. Find me on twitter or pillowfort if you want to follow my social media presences, but ctrl-D and bookmark this here website if you want to stay up to date on all my projects and side content. It’s about to get considerably more exclusive. 

Goodbye / Hello

I’m not going to make a big song and dance about this, but if you follow me on twitter you probably saw that I’m putting Mythos officially to bed for a while. 

It’s a tale as old as time – I started it in college, the early chapters don’t represent the quality of my work any more, I’ve changed a ton (name, job, city, gender) since I started writing it, and I want to feel free to pursue new projects without that albatross around my neck. I might come back to it episodically now and again, but as my primary project it’s done.

As for The Deeps – the chapter is close to completion, but I’m not going to make any promises. I’ll continue to work on it when the mood takes me, but it’s no longer my focus. If it never gets finished, it never gets finished. 

Thank you to the handful of you who have been (amazingly!) loyal to the comic over the years. It’s still very close to my heart, and so are you for understanding the things I set out to say. Now I want to move forward and bring you new stories at the pace and level you deserve.
