A couple years ago I was a contributing artist on Substrata. Along with my fellow Substratians, I developed a personal fantasy-fable which kind of stuck with me. There are elements of this story that I had intended to present during the contribution period of Substrata, but life and work derailed my progress. So I spent a year thinking about this little world I’d created, and I’ve finally had a chance to open it up again. Over the next while, I’ll be redesigning and revisiting this work (if for no other reason than self-improvement), and presenting some brand new work to further the story.

But first thing’s first: Our hero.
