During my time away from work, I am a creator through art and stories. Galebound is currently my main project, which was first created in ’07 and later brought to webcomic format in 2016. After working on the comic for three years, I made the decision to return the story to its original form as a novel, and I’m working on bringing the story to its finished incarnation now. Keep watch on this site and my Patreon for updates! You can also follow Galebound’s progress on Twitter here.
