I find immense comfort in the relationship between words and art. I used to consider myself more artist than writer without knowing what that really meant, but now I enjoy bringing my imagination to life through both words and visuals. I also want my passion to enrich other authors’ stories. Here are my line art commissions for The Alchemy of Sorrow—a fantasy and sci-fi anthology of grief and hope.

This is amazing, in just over 2 days @gwendamned’s The Alchemy of Sorrow is over 85% done towards its 1st stretch goal. Which will include cool interior illustrations by current #SPFBO finalist & amazing artist @ke_rosero. Let’s go folks, back this project.


So proud of @gwendamned and the authors behind The Alchemy of Sorrow anthology. They got funded in a day and now reaching their 1st stretch goal (hand-drawn art from the talented @ke_rosero)! If you haven’t backed the project yet, go do it!
