1/ I think it's about time I introduce myself beyond my shitposting, econ talk, philosophy, weebery, and dunking on the State, statists, and pseuds with my massive fucking brain. I've been writing, revising, and illustrating a book for about a year and nine months now.
2/ It's nearing completion, finally; I'd say it's 94% of the way done. I'll be setting up an Indiegogo within the next day or two for it, so keep an eye out for that. There will be much more in the way of describing the book/series on that campaign page.
3/ But I wanted to briefly dive into my ethos in creating this story and worldbuilding not one, but two worlds for it. Before I began this current project, Project Hexen, I was working on an OEL manga project called Misericorde.
4/ I dove into it and worked my butt off for a year, despite not having the full skillset and drawing probably 100x slower than a professional mangaka; I'd only finished about seventy pages, despite also working on that nearly everyday. The upside: I improved my skills quite
5/ a bit. The downside? It didn't sell and wasn't going to. The story was too shoddy, too long, poorly drawn, and dealt with themes that were so dark, it became depressing to even work on. 'Dark' in the way the Kult TRPG is dark. This was the last finished page, w/o context:
6/ It took a solid week of moping about to get over it, but it wasn't long before I started Hex | End. While it's still borderline grimdark, it doesn't take itself quite so seriously. It's much more lighthearted, (and therefore more easily marketable). And my editor complimented
7/ it profusely, and I don't think it's just because she was being paid.

I said this would be brief, so I'll get to my point. I always knew I would be an author or an illustrator, or both. But now it's going to be official and I'd love your help. See, entertainment sucks now.
8/ Every form of Western media now seemingly exists only to inculcate people with a political ideology. I fucking hate it. I only watch anime or read books and manga anymore because games, movies, and Western comics are raging, progressive dumpster fires.
9/ Storytelling is practically a lost art now in Western mass media. Timeless themes have been shelved in favor of propaganda and, going forward, you'll increasingly see quality works coming almost exclusively from independent creators.
10/ That's all for now. Thanks for your time. I look forward to serving you good, thoughtful works. Get woke, go broke.

In the meantime, I guess... check out my Pixiv. There are a few illustrations from the light novel there.…
