A bit of everything goes in here. More than my novel artwork, we have plenty of Snake Eater fanart (mostly of the Cobra Unit), anthro and other animal art, and miscellaneous character commissions. :)



Another Year on Holiday, but Back Again!

E-Book: 7.50
Paperback: 13.64
Hardback: 21.50
UK readers can contact me via e-mail ( better value signed hardback copies! Because of high postage costs, US readers are better off buying from Lulu at the above links. :)

Okay, so maybe I haven't been on holiday technically (a mixture of being sick and lazy), but here I am. :dance:

For everyone who's been wondering where I was, I was still around, but not often online since I've been busy with work and novel projects.  I am still unwell and undergoing treatment revision/boring things, and for a while in December half of my face was paralysed with a Bell's Palsy that scared the life out of me!  But that's recovered now, and I'm hoping to be on the road to recovery this year.  I also need to lose all the damn weight I've gained during my illness, but my GP says it won't be possible until my condition is properly managed. :stab:

I need to update my official website, once I can get around to it with Filezilla and Dreamweaver (again, LAZY!!), but I now have a new little site dedicated to my commissions service, which you can find at if you're interested or just want to take a peek. :)
I am currently open for a small lineup of commissions, bearing in mind that if I'm unwell I might be a little slow if I take on too many projects.  Just note me or contact me via the website if you're interested! :email:

I have a million tons of new art to upload (just because I've been away from the site doesn't mean I stopped churning out my nonsense!), so I'm thinking that I might delete the majority of stuff in my old gallery and leave it on my Grenamoya Island website, to have a fresher start.  Sound Okay? =3

Thank you SO so much to everyone who's been worried about me, or has been keeping my spirits up these last two years.  After so much sickness and time away my confidence has been so low, but to know that people still want to hear from me and see my random arty things really boosts me up. <3 Thanks a lot everyone, it's really, really appreicated. :hug: Hope to be in touch with everyone again soon!

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United Kingdom
I am an artist who dabbles in traditional and digital media, some simple animation, and tons and tons of fiction writing. :) I currently live in Wales, UK, though in 2012 I hope to move back to Belfast, Northern Ireland, for good.
I started plans for my 6 book fantasy series at the age of ten, and since then have worked towards completing the Grenamoya Island Saga, which I both write and illustrate. I have been published in the UK but am currently self-printing my work. In my spare time I do some commission work, and I have worked on character designs as well as some local company logos. 3 years of illness have held me back for too long and I'm finally getting back into the swing of things, with as much work as I can handle!
