Everyday 038 – Pan

Of all the pre-collapse beings, those least affected by the shift into the industrial post-reality were the old gods. Having always existed in a state of parallel involvement with the mortal worlds, many of them chose to stay aloof, leaving humans to work out their own path forward in the new world of machines. Pan…

Everyday 024 – Goblin Shaman

Swinging a cluster of shrunken heads with abandon, a goblin shaman sprints toward his target with his ceremonial dagger held high. Anyone who stands in his way is likely to be scorched to ashes, turned into a chicken, or added to the shaman’s shrunken head collection.  Making 100 drawings in a hundred days has been…

The craggy surface of her dress contrasts with the long, fluid lines of her figure, creating a stark and imposing silhouette. Standing amidst the labyrinthine underground caverns of her stone palace,…

Everyday 018 – Waiting

It was the highest point for miles in any direction, but despite its uniqueness, the hilltop only seemed to attract a single visitor. It was the perfect place to sit and wait, though what this particular goblin waited for was anyone’s guess. Perhaps he was plotting an ambush for traveling merchants on the roads below….
