Because if so, then look no further.

I don't have the time to create everything that I'd like to, quite frankly, but I have lots of ideas flowing nonetheless. Maybe you're the opposite, with plenty of time and few ideas. If that's the case, I have a few really great ideas for some short stories that would work much better in graphic-novel form than in prose. One is a prequel based on The Incredibles, and the other is a little side-project/sequel featuring most of the main characters from Frozen. Since the movies are visual, I felt like these stories needed to be visual as well. Both could be anywhere from five to ten to twenty comic-pages long, depending on how you want to draw them (and the plots themselves). I don't mind black-and white: color is your prerogative.

I can even provide storyboards and character profiles if you want them, with landscape and character outlines... but I don't really have the attention span for details like every tree and table and shadow layout. Otherwise, I'd be drawing these comics myself.

As an artist, I know it's a lot to ask someone to draw a picture without necessarily naming a financial reward. I'm willing to negotiate a small price if really necessary, but for me this has never been about money; it's been about fun. If you think you might enjoy drawing a few graphic-novel pages without having to come up with the stories yourself, let me know. I know that this is a pretty lofty goal for me to have, but I'd rather take a shot in the dark and come up empty than to have never tried.

Feedback and criticism is most welcome. If you don't like something, by all means say so - but only so long as you explain why. Otherwise I cannot improve.

If you comment on any of my work, I will look through your gallery, unless it contains lewd or inappropriate content.

I let the darkness shut me in
and waited, half with dread—
But half with joy to hear that voice
awake inside my head:

“There’s much potential power here
— as is in every child —
To be admired, envied, loved,
entrusted, or reviled.

“A war may come when you are grown,
and which side would you choose?
For one side will be victors,
and the other side will lose.

"You could be an (1) Advisor —
or the very (2) King of all!
Perhaps a (3) Mighty Warrior
who can well defend the walls…

"Or you could just a (4) Peasant be,
with little skill to fight
And in the end, lay down your life…
but for the cause that’s right.”

And instantly I knew my choice:

1. For wisdom writes the law.     2. I’m royal, deep within.
3. To battle and explore.            4. For though the road be rough,

I knew that it was in my blood
to enter…
The Sorting
Not that I claim to be as accurate as Pottermore, but I thought this was a great way to define the four houses. Once you've made your choice, only then do you find out which house you belong in (by rhyme!)

So for example, my choice would be D, so my final paragraph would be as follows:
And instantly I knew my choice:
For though the road be rough,
I knew that it was in my blood
to enter Hufflepuff.

Ottery St. Mary by ambassador-brouwer
Ottery St. Mary
"You see, St. Mary is the patron saint of Devon. And she, of course, was famously martyred by being eaten alive by otters."
"Really?"
"Oh yes – 
rabid otters. So she’s always portrayed in pictures absolutely covered in otters."
"What, eating her!?"
"Sometimes, in the more fire-and-brimstone churches. Elsewhere, the assumption is they’re all in heaven now, and have made up. So they’re just shown milling about her, nuzzling her affectionately and offering her ottery kisses. And gifts of haddock."
"Why would the otters go to heaven if they ate a saint?"
"You’ve put your finger, Arthur, as is so often your way, on the crux of a thorny theological problem. So far, our best guess is simply that St Peter’s got a real soft spot for otters. He looks into those whiskery faces and goes, 'You guys! I can’t stay mad at you!' and lets them into heaven."

Someone started a blog called "The Fangirl Initiative."

I joined.

My first article was for people who've never seen Doctor Who. If you want to introduce your friends to the show or at least make them tolerate your fandom, share this with the world.

Not at all - I enjoyed reading it and I'll try to get on it. First time I've been tagged in anything before - please excuse my lateness, I've been out for about a month. Tip My Hat emoticon
