My full science fiction short story is NOW AVAILABLE, FREE on my blog:

www.cannibalcandy.com/2014/09/…

For those of you that need a little convincing.
I've been pitching my story as Slumdog Millionaire meets AKIRA.
It's a sci-fi short that takes place in a future Mumbai, India.  
It centers around a group of small children that scavenge old technology and data to survive.

Please give it a read, and share it if you like it!  
I'd really like to begin to engage the writing and reading community.
I know I've always been known on here as a painter and concept designer, 
but writing has been one of my primary passions since I was very young.

I'm looking forward to what you guys think!
Lots of love, some of it inappropriate.

Sometimes I ask myself - Does one can have a solid style and yet have variety? Your gallery is  my reference to that, that it can be achieved. One can have a former style, recognizable and rich, and yet draw anything, from simply creatures to deformed monsters and intricate fantasy characters to common people.
I'm not an art critique, I don't have much on my DA gallery, yet I've been drawing a lot and watching a lot of professional tutorials and insights that are there in order to improve, and you're one of my solid references.

heyah, just wanted to say, I sat down and fully read Maggot last night. I went in fresh, with only your images to guide me, and I have to say, you have an eye for cyberpunk like very few other people. You grasp the subtlety and the immediacy of it, and coming from Singapore, the worn down, dark urban jungle of Sun City reminded me a lot of the poorer places of southeast asia, and really felt very realistic. I also love the really subtle symbolism like the god Shiva being considered irrelevant in the world (holding court in a junkyard), but returning to claim his vengeance, again, restarting the cycle. I would have loved to see more of Shesh's vengeance, and more of the nanohive, but perhaps it is best left to our imagination, as that world is ending, before a new one can rise from the ashes. The characters were fantastic and despite having limited screentime, came across very clearly and well.

Suffice to say, TL;DR, you're talented as hell, and you have a unique vision that really just blows competitors out of the water. Stuff that would be so difficult to concieve just seems to flow. So......good job :)

Thank you VERY much for your kind words.  Putting my writing out there for people to read was a genuine pant-shitting experience. Hahaha.  I'm really really glad you liked it.  

I have written a whole treatment that tells the story of Shesh and company, including his powerful retribution.  I think you'd dig it!  I hope to someday turn it into a full novel.  Stay tuned, for sure!

I love all the MtG work you've done! Any way we can see the full Geist of St. Traft promo art you've done that's been floating around? I'd love to see the details on it but all the images I've seen so far are kinda blurry. ):

I still do work for wizards, but I left Sony last year. :)  Now I'm working on my own ideas, and freelancing for lots of companies that make games and films.  Thanks for stopping by!
