I'm a webcomic artist and a dungeon master, and it's starting to look like most of my art on this account is related to Pathfinder, D&D, and the like. I make initiative magnets for tabletop, too. Feel free to ask me about it!

Unfortunately, this leaves me little time for messing around on web forums and the like, so don't be sad if I don't drop you a thank you note. I read absolutely every comment and check all the faves and watches I get. I live on feedback! Feel free to start up a conversation with me :) I don't bite.

Things have been busy lately...haven't even had time to update Falser Faker...but ten days after the fact, I just noticed I got featured on the official XCOM Facebook/Twitter pages! ;-; I am so thankful!  Looking forward to an amazing sequel to an amazing game.  (No pressure, Firaxis. <3)

XCOM is one of those games that drew me in despite the fact that I've never been much of a high-sci-fi fan in the past.  Really, it's about guns and being a freakin sorcerer.  Let's be honest here.  That stuff isn't sufficiently advanced technology.  Dat's magic.

There are very few things I love enough to do fan art about, and I never do fan art for something that I feel is already so complete that art would not add to it.  That is, I feel no need to do artwork for, say, the Psychonauts universe, because that game and that art style in itself stands alone and does not require fan content.  I feel no need to do artwork for the Heroes of Might and Magic series, because while I love the game, you really don't play it for the plot or even for the play it for turn based strategy and tide-turning strategical magicks.

XCOM is different.  XCOM is both complete in its own right, as a game, and also has limitless potential for inserting your own stories into the canon they've presented.  In fact, in my opinion, the game is better when you name your soldiers and give them the stories that Firaxis didn't.  That's the part of the game that draws me in.  Firaxis didn't make you care about the characters.  It handed you a handful of baby recruits and told you to name them, care for them, and teach them to be strong.  And that is the beauty of it.  Firaxis didn't punch you in the feels.  You punched yourself.

Oh, and so did I.  Ha~ Love you guys.

HOLY CRAP! Your x-com comic was fantastic, it's impressive on how you've achieved more feels and gathered more attention from readers in 2 pages than most long running pro comics xD
