‪#‎TheDeadGod‬

The Cobbler and the Dragon:

"They prayed and prayed and many tried and many died, until one day a cobbler came, humble and plain, who slew the dragon with such uncommon means, the villagers praised him and proclaimed him king. They built him a castle on top of that hill and so the humble cobbler became a king of a hill."
#TheDeadGod There once lived a dragon named Smok in a cave deep inside a hill–or, if you prefer, a small mountain, although “a large hill” is probably closer to the truth–who found sustenance in ...

I’ve done a strange thing. I’ve been thinking for a while now of getting my own ‪#‎Patreon‬ page for my ‪#‎writing‬, so two days ago I began compiling one, writing soberly about my intentions with the page, about my lack of time due to factors most of us struggle with, and my aim to complete all my projects this year if the page generates sufficient support. I even had fun writing up the various rewards for the different pledge levels. You should actually go read them just for the entertainment value alone.

Also, I made a vide clip of me talking and it's excruciating to watch, so go watch it.

Today’s post is a special one. We’re introducing our cover artist for Interspecies. At last, you say? Indeed. At last.

His name is Piotr Foksowicz but he is more commonly known as simply Piofoks. Piotr is an illustrator and concept artist from Wroclaw City, Poland and as you can clearly see he is a phenomenal artist.

Story
Tagline
I tend to fantasize a lot. Sometimes I write about it.
Introduction

As a kid I consumed books and comics by the truckloads, reading anything from fantasy to westerns to science fiction. I wanted to stay in that dream state so I began making up my own stories, writing my first short story at 12. I also started drawing my own comics--little stick figures with dialogue balloons that later evolved into musclebound warriors and scantly clad vixens. I gave them battle axes and broadswords and unleashed them onto the world. A silent chaos ensued followed by crickets chirping and nothing much else, but boy, did I entertain myself. Alas, life kept interfering and I allowed it, and so nothing came from my artistic endeavors.

After graduating high school I served a year in the military where I learned how to dig trenches, eat quickly, and miss girls. I travelled to Israel and lived on a Kibbutz for eight months, working in avocado fields and drinking cheap vodka. For a while I sold pots and pans and educational toys in Africa and almost got shot in Zimbabwe. I did a brief stint as a cartoonist somewhere and an even briefer stint as reporter somewhere else. Somehow, and maybe by accident, I ended up in law school and became a lawyer. I did that for almost a decade.

These days I'm back to writing stories. A calling I ignored for far too long. I now live in New Zealand, and with a wife and kids, and a dog, I'll be staying put for the foreseeable future.
