(Originally posted on SweetLittleBadGirl on 2011.03.25. Second-place winner in a player-run fiction contest and published in E-ON magazine.) First launched in YC93, Eye of the Serpent earned immediate notoriety for both its ambitious script and its simplistic production design. Now celebrating the twentieth anniversary of its release, the cast and crew have been reunited to share their … Continue reading Eye of the Serpent — Episode One “The Black Freighter”
You know what irritates me the most when watching films set amidst a mediaeval war? How they deal with swords and armour. Not every film or show does this, but in productions of which I would expect better, people flail swords around like they're crowbars, and clomp about in their armour like Ripley in her … Continue reading It’s a tool, not a handicap

I'll never forget the workman who … Continue reading Character studies
A bit of fan-art, the character Lady Neku from Jon Courtenay Grimwood's novel End of the World Blues.
A cartoonish character scrawled together for a Flash animation class I took at Rhode Island School of Design in 2010. The walking animation was quite fun to put together; if I can ever locate the thumb drive it's stored on (there have been several moves since 2010) I'll post the test reel as a gif. … Continue reading Aviankin
(Originally posted on Sweet Little Bad Girl, after DUST514 was announced in 2009. Obviously, the released game bears little resemblance to this footslogger's story, but very little was known about it at the time.) What sort of person do you have to be, to turn your back on everything you ever knew? The tip … Continue reading Dust
I love placing characters in atypical moods. Goblin spirituality is a rarely-explored topic. Inked by hand, coloured digitally.
