Another installment from the scribe Wifelier Docht.
Log File 004: Wifelier Docht Date: 2798 DSP (Dark Star Epoch) A strange thing happened today. Or was it earlier this year? Or maybe last year? It happened fairly recent, I am certain. No, not certain. It’s hard to know anything for sure. My present status as scribe to the God-Machine is an absolute. That …

Ariel Perez hails from Israel and works as a freelance concept artist and illustrator. His work tends to fall on the science fiction side of things, but we have swords and armor in these paintings, so I made an executive decision.

Although Ariel’s work, at least the ones I have here, falls in the dystopian/dieselpunk arena, I decided to extend it to fantasy because the ambiance in these paintings feels like a reversion to old things done in the old way and, for the time being, and while my prattle endures, I’ve extended my understanding of fantasy for the sake of this post. #Art   #Fantasy  
Today’s artist hails from Israel and is an enigma to me. I’ve tried to find more information about him, but to no avail. I spent about an hour or so googling the crap out of variants of…

My apologies for being late this week. School holidays and kids and writing do not mix very well. Nevermind finding time to search for awesome fantasy artists. And yet, I did. This week’s artist is an immediate favourite of mine and you’ll soon see why.

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.
