Hey Friends!! Check out the Kickstarter and play the demo of Who We Are Now, a queer visual novel I’ve been working on with game designer, programmer and writer, Bryce Duzan!

Who We Are Now is a game about trying to move on from past trauma, about trying to find yourself in a world you don't understand anymore, and about finding love even in the most extreme of circumstances. It's a game about exploring the relationships between characters, each with their own problems, thrown together in this place called Home.  

It is, ultimately, a game that embraces the small moments of joy that occur between two people falling for each other. 

Wes

Wes is the main character of Who We Are Now. After wandering the wasteland of what the world has become, he's stopped at a settlement called Home. There, he meets four men who, like him, are suffering. Wes is haunted by the ghosts of his past, the friends and family that he'll never see again, and the terrible actions he's had to take to survive. He's looking for something in Home, though he's not sure what. Maybe along the way he'll find a way to ease his hurt spirit. Perhaps he'll even fall in love, if such a thing is possible after the apocalypse.

Jesse

Jesse had it all: fame, money, looks. His future looked bright and full of opportunity. When the bombs fell, that all ended. A few years after the apocalypse, Jesse ran into a group of bandits. They attacked him, shattering his arm and scarring his face. He was found and brought back to Home. With limited medical resources, however, in the end Jesse's arm had to be amputated to save him. Since that day, Elder Mohra allowed Jesse to live in Home. He mostly keeps to himself, worrying that others will judge or look down on him. Mostly, Jesse mourns what could have been and the life he could have had. Recently, he has been seen less and less, preferring to stay in his house, away from the rest of the town. Mohra worries about him, and hopes that Wes can somehow help Jesse find happiness again.

Xander

Xander is the youngest of the love interests; he was only a teenager in high school when the bombs fell. A decade later and he's been too busy trying to survive to learn how to grow up. Worse yet, since the apocalypse, he's changed. Whether it was through radiation or something else, Xander can somehow control electricity. Well, "control" is a strong word. At times, he loses control of it and becomes a weapon of incredible destruction. Others fear and ostracize him, and he remains in Home only because of Elder Mohra. He needs someone that will try to understand him, powers and all. Maybe Wes can do that?

Hello and happy Halloween, tumblr! Here’s a spooky three page comic called Are We Out of the Woods Yet, that’s part of my A Swift Demise collection (available for free on Gumroad!) which features consensual violence, gore and death.

Click past the cut (or click on “notes” if you can’t see the cut) to keep reading!

Hey tumblr! Here are some initial character drawings from a project I’m working on with the excellent Bryce Duzan called Who We Are Now.

It’s a post-post-apocalyptic, queer visual novel exploring themes of rebuilding, and trying to find yourself in a world gone wrong. 

Check out Bryce’s Patreon and consider supporting the project!

HELLO FRIENDS, I’ve been pretty quiet over here on tumblr, but here’s a peek at the Krem illustration I did (with inks from Beth Sparks and flats by Paul Coy) for Bring Down the Sky, an upcoming Bioware fanzine!

Lots of fantastic artists are contributing, it’s gonna be FANTASTIC.

Hey friends! The Bring Down the Sky fanzine was successfully funded, and we can share our full pieces now!

Here is the full Krem illustration I did with Beth Sparks and Paul Coy

I keep forgetting to share this! I drew Ellen Alsop’s OC Efne (@space_ellien on twitter, or @ellenalsop on tumblr) for #SecretSenpai, a twitter art friend gift exchange! She was so fun to draw. I based this on a scene from the original Sailor Moon opening sequence.
