|By profession I am a UI/UX Digital Designer, by Hobby I am an avid reader, writer, and going for my Phd in English, and combining the two you get the extent of my experience as a Digital Artist. I grew up on the East Coast of the United States and have been drawing and writing since about third grade.|

The new year has started and lots of work is getting completed. The design for bellchasers.com is up in its skeleton form, and I think it accomplishes everything I set out to do.
The site is clean and will allow for easy reading and navigation of the comics. it has some neat features and pieces to its design as well, and will easily expand during its growth.
The first story arc is mapped out pretty well and I am actually meeting with my writer today to go over the details. Production on page one should be starting right after. On the art side there is still some main character finalization, but really the biggest thing is the non-main characters. The bellchasers world is vast, and realistic. It is not a world of 4-5 people, but whole empires and civilizations.
The importance of carrying over the culture of races and peoples into their clothing styles, hair, and attitudes is very important to me. My educational background is Literature and History, my technical background is design, art, and programming--so things like this, to me, are similar to creating a good user interface and experience. In this case, the interface is the comic and site and the experience is a one way trip into a whole new world--that I feel will captivate you and bring you into my world.
I hope to be putting up some more general art soon, as well as some bellchasers stuff.
