Just a brief well-wish from me to all of you. I hope your holidays have been warm, peaceful, and happy.

We had a death in the family on Christmas Eve, and we’ve been scrambling to get arrangements made and the funeral planned. It was unexpected, and a heavy loss for all involved, so there’s been little to no time to do anything unrelated to this.

I still intend to relaunch Rusted soon, but January 4th may be too soon. I also intend on resuming work on MADNESS AND INSANITY and getting the “Yoggyopolis” redesign up. But, again, this Monday isn’t looking likely.

LoreCrafted, too, has seen a dearth of posts, not because of lack of subject matter, but because of lack of time.

As the aftermath of this event settles, and as Christmas resumes (albeit, greatly delayed) for the rest of my family, I’ll be getting things back into place.

I thank you all for your understanding. Be well and be safe.

RIP Dr. Milagros Gallego
Beloved aunt to my brothers and I.
Beloved sister to my mother.
Beloved daughter to my grandmother.
Beloved wife to my uncle.
Beloved mother to my cousin.
And beloved friend to countless others.
May God speed your soul to a peaceful rest.
You are missed.

I used to sketch detailed work a lot more frequently and quickly than I do today. I’ve strayed somewhat from that style in favor of pursuing something simpler and more cartoony. Not wanting to let my skills atrophy, and wanting to recover what has atrophied, I chose to use this sub-project as practice.

The Netherbane Chronicles will be (if ever actually executed), a non-regular comic posted to my World of Warcraft guild site. I bounce between wanting to sketch it all or wanting to do it using Photoshopped screen-captures of in-game models. We’ll see how it all turns out eventually, methinks. Below is an incomplete sketch of the first page. The roughs are really rough. The darker lines are the in-progress portion.

Yeah, I still have a lot of recovery to go…

November 1st marked the launch of Azeroth United’s Hearts, Hands, and Voices charity drive for the Child’s Play charity organization. Because I enjoy being a part of the Warcraft community, I’m announcing this on my personal blog in hopes of getting as much exposure as possible. Over the next couple of weeks you’ll see me mention this drive across my other sites as well.

It should be noted that I’ll be contributing a special art print from MADNESS AND INSANITY (one of my two web comics) as well as a handcrafted Cuddle Me Yoggy plush toy. If you’d like to contribute something, please visit Azeroth United for more information. Or head on over to Lorecrafted and use the Chip In widget to … well, chip in!


Oh yeah, the Halloween / Hallow’s End comic for MADNESS AND INSANITY was posted yesterday. A higher resolution version of that picture will be posted here later this week for anyone who may want a wallpaper.

Finally, I fixed the DNS issue that was pointed to the old LoreCrafted site. That comic will be relaunched shortly, as well. I just wanted to get the domain issue fixed first. Rusted’s not dead by a long shot. I just needed to re-evaluate my workload and adjust some things. With that done, I can lay the foundation for the future of that story.

This whole “getting interviewed” thing is still a new experience to me, but it’s definitely something that can be rather fun.

This past Monday I had the honor of being the first guest over on the For the Lore podcast, hosted by Roger (@forthelore), Joe (@lodurzj), and Enrique (@spoonwolf, who wasn’t present due to real life matters). The podcast itself covers the lore of various different games, but World of Warcraft is definitely one of them.

The episode can be downloaded here for those interested in listening to me babble incessantly about Warcraft lore, roleplay, and storytelling.

So, against their better judgement (hah!) it seems that the Twisted Nether Blogcast, the official podcast of Blog Azeroth, has decided to interview me! Yeah, I think it has to do with this whole Warcraft community blogging thing, perhaps. Maybe LoreCrafted or the Netherbane factor in somehow…


In all seriousness, it’s a great honor, and I’m both excited and nervous at the same time. The interview is scheduled for Thursday, September 3rd, at 9:30pm PST.  You can find more information linked below, behind the big Twisted Nether badge. Come check us out and listen in your favorite random internet blogger with the name “Tharion Greyseer!”
