About

I'm a lifelong nerd hailing from the wastelands of Florida (home of the Skunkape). Crafting creatures and building worlds is what I enjoy doing most.

The bulk of my work is made using a blend of Pencil and Photoshop.

Sometimes I stream the Photoshop part on http://www.twitch.tv/tiinasaurus .
