The Call to Ruin
That memory persists and lingers,
Though I am somber,
When we smelled Yarrow through my fingers,
Plenty of sorrows, dying winters.
Mistress calls, misery's warmonger,
She saunters, beckons her herd of pain
They lumber, hooves mauls my brain dumber,
In bed, I lay slain;
The plague bringer reigns.

This piece was developed during one of the cold spells we had early this year. My sinus was acting up, and feeling miserable. I had been helping my wife study for some microbiology exams, in between I willed myself to put all the feelings and images of disease into this.

The Compass Never Settles
Prince of the ocean, in compass,
he placed his total devotion
Prince in motion, a god pompous
he raced to the Arctic Ocean
a prophethood nightmare revealed
he'd die there -he reeled

Sea chaotic, breeds eels monstrous
Toothy gloomy grins they reveal.
Prince myopic, dreams do cost us
They wade underneath, set to meal
true teachings they always repeat
engrave our defeat

Prince in peril, water level
Rises and pounds threatens to drown
Myths several taught a lesson
sinking sailors from their vessels
thinking false, subdue the feral
a coup imperil


Personal piece done out of frustration. 
The frustration of not knowing where my vision guides me. 
The frustration of a confused mind.
The frustration of the upheaval's of life.

Be the Moon and Make the Stars Jealous

Inspiration can hit anywhere. I moved in to a new house, with amazing recessed lighting throughout. Loved the way the shadows cast as I passed the bedroom mirror. Took my camera and snapped some photos. Excited by the pictures I started sketching immediately.

I'm always reading and buying books, they're my biggest weakness. I've dreamt creating a dust jacket size illustration for awhile. With the new sketches of the wishmaster, I turned it into a book cover.

The wishmaster's seduction idea sprung from my desire to push myself. I realize I can do better, I sense I can do amazing things. I pushed to make a piece that others would be jealous of, a piece worthy of inspiration.

These pages are done for fun, they're not part of any official star wars project. First of, I liked Last Jedi. I read an interview where Mark Hamill was frustrated at his character's take on the movie, and it prompted me to create this comic. Mark's frustration would've been a better driving motivation for Luke. The sense that Luke felt his destiny tarnished, where he questioned what good he had done. If this was to be the last Jedi, then the moment needed to be epic.
