Experimental Text Adventure sketches

Sketched some critters from my text adventure in the middle of the night, when I was having a hard time falling asleep. Sometimes images start burning into my brain when I can't sleep, and it's soothing to be able to put them down on paper. Then they're not running around inside my head. Drawing can be relaxing, and once the images are out of my head, falling asleep tends to be easier.

It's been awhile since I've drawn a squirrel. I'm sure this is all sorts of anatomically incorrect, but midnight sketches are all about not worrying about that stuff.

Swirly-whirly Crow.

 Last but certainly not least, a being you're quite unlikely to see in your backyard, or anywhere else in reality: Lightning Bird. A personification (birdification?) of lightning.

What sort of nonsense is this?

Hello, internet! Family and friends! Is this thing on? *taps interdimensional portal of doom*

I've got a website now. That's pretty crazy. It'll act as my gallery, where I display collections of my completed works (and that one experimental story). Visiting this blog will be like stepping into my studio---I'll post work in progress, silly doodles, launch intro grand tirades about seagulls, and who knows what else.

I'm a writer, artist, and naturalist, and I consider myself an amateur in all three of those pursuits. If you follow this blog, you can watch me flounder about as I try and increase my skills and discover new things! I am a Young Adult Person, and for the most part I have no idea what I'm doing! It's grand.

I'll probably talk about how writing gives me a headache and the creative delights of collaborative video games and what the doves are doing in the backyard today. If that sounds terribly boring, do leave and never come back!

Otherwise, take a kitten plushie off the shelf, settle in, and make yourself at home.
