I started writing this around 2001. I later wrote and drew a graphic novel. My art and story telling skills were not yet mature enough to properly present the material they way I saw it in my mind's eye.

Time has gone by, and after years of practice, I'm happy with my art and writing skills. I hope that it shows.

From a laundromat way back in 2001 to your eyes, here in they year 2017.
