Just released! My latest HELLO, WIZARD.

Deep in a sunless dungeon, a father struggles to hold onto hope.
Then the glowing notes arrive. They offer freedom—for a very simple price.
But some things should never be for sale, even in the darkest places…

Available as an ebook or paperback at: pixelvaniapublishing.com/book/

It’d be a quick death—the machines never stopped in time—and a better one than the injection in store for me when I failed my final set of tests.

At least this way I get to choose.

My palm had just kissed the glass when my father grabbed me from behind.

I twisted, but he was too strong. He hauled me, his only son, through the water, back to where my mother screamed and people avoided looking at us. My escape had failed.

I’d been paying for that day’s cowardice ever since.

Book out now.

I once tried to run into the sea to drown myself, but the water never rose higher than my skinny fourteen-year-old calves.

It didn’t take long before I found the end of the sea, a glass wall at the very edge of the tower. Jets pumped recirculated water through slots aimed at my ankles. I stared through the glass at the steel city before me. If climbed over, I could jump, and if I jumped, I’d fall. I’d close my eyes and pretend I was flying—at least, until the first autokinet smashed into me.

I've been drawing these characters for years, and now their story's out!

Left social media as a productivity experiment, and really dug the results. So instead of hanging around Masto, I'll just forward my art (and ebook release posts) from PixelvaniaStudios.com.

If you have any questions for me or just want to get in touch, feel free to comment on the original posts at Pixelvania Studios or use the contact forms at either of my homepages! Thanks! 🙃

@windofbloom Wow, very striking! I want to set a similar goal for myself of making more finished pieces. Let's cheer each other on! 🎉

@davidrevoy Can you tell me about that interesting pencil? It looks like a lead holder made to look like a trad pencil, but with a regular eraser?? I am intrigued!
