The World of Mirayae - Prologue
The night was young as it soared above the snow-coated village. Stars blinked in the cradle of The Rising Phoenix, like separate snowflakes far away from the land’s hold. Blue, yellow, white, mingled in purple glow of the dust spreading over the brilliant centre almost bright enough to outstand the moon. It was like an offspring not yet hatched, a phoenix to be risen, one day…
I sighed. One day, I would greet the skies with it. The stars on my wings. Or as my wings. That was my dream.
It was like the day back then, as I lay in the snow the stars twinkling over and the snowflakes brushing my face as they landed. I reached my hand up and wondered why some of the flakes never fell. Why those sparkling gems never descended onto my palm… Though they did vanish by morning.
Dino said if there was an egg to be cracking, the pieces would fall, crash onto our lands like they sometimes do. I wondered then, would even the stars, the snowflakes f

Hello! I make art sometimes. Mostly I doodle not-quite-real animals in the corners of notebooks and the backs of papers. I dabble in other things, like Shrinky Dinks and clay and sewing. Overall, I hope to keep improving and making art.

Some pieces of art relate to a story I have been writing about magical, not-quite-real animals. More details on that as I progress!

NEW: REDBUBBLE OPEN NOW! Click here to get prints, cards, notebooks, and more!


I've just about caught up to uploading all of my (relevant) old art pieces! My new goal is to finish one piece a week so I can have consistent updates. Here we go!
Blood Bird
This was another colored pencil/ink experiment done on an old sketch. I'm so glad that I've kept a lot of my old, unfinished doodles because, while I didn't care for them much in their original form, they've been great to practice coloring and inking on. I'm not afraid to mess them up because I wasn't overly attached to the original.

I think that the practice has paid off, because now I'm at the point where I color/ink my new sketches without too much worry. I still have a long way to go to get to where I want to be, but I'm getting somewhere!

This is supposed to be some kind of reptilian bird, dipping its wing into a dimensional rift, probably somewhere that has something to do with pyramids and sands.

My Redbubble shop is open! Check it out to get prints, cards, notebooks, and more!

Up to the Blue Sky
An experiment! I like the effects of this... we'll call it a bull amphithere? with an outline and the color on the outside instead of the inside. I have a few more like this coming! It'll be a set eventually.

Check out my Redbubble shop! This piece will be available on it soon - let me know what you'd like to see it printed on!…
