R/L Monroe is a writer, editor and illustrator based in Glasgow, Scotland.
Interests include ghosts, lurid gestures, mysteries and anarchy.
Last time I did this there was a global pandemic like a week later and every project I could possibly put up here came to a halt. The pandemic is still here, but we’re used to it / bored of it now, so it’s time to have a portfolio again.
There is a secondary purpose to the update this time; 3rd party internet infrastructure sucks ass now in a way that has gone beyond unstable and become outright hostile to indie creators. I’d like to relocate to my own site as my primary blogging/art platform and figure out some kind of solution to hook up my output to various social media platforms automatically. It used to be possible. I’m sure it is still possible one way or another. Ideally I would like to stop reading other people’s posts entirely. (If you’re reading this I don’t mean you, your content is funny and insightful and original, I’m talking about everyone else don’t worry).
I’m back baby!!! My new ongoing comic has finally launched with three full pages to give you a little taste of what we’re going to be in for with this very silly, very bloody, very high octane soap opera of sin. You can dive into it right now!
Keep an eye on the little thumbnail at the top of the front page for new updates, which will appear spasmodically from now on. The comic page itself will be spruced up over time with character pages, a proper archive etc. as we get deeper into the story. I’ll keep ya posted.
In the meantime, SET YOUR BOOKMARKS, SHARE THE NEWS. If you’re not following me on twitter, I highly recommend it for news of future updates. Even better, follow me on Patreon for page updates plus various bits and pieces from behind the scenes as the story continues.
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.
