Parent website, home of many excellent wallpapers, livejournal icons, and cool things to do.

Go visit.  You know you want to.



Photoshop brush sites, whose resources I have plundered to use in icons, etc. 

Well... something like that...

Marvelous and fascinating artistic creations. A lovely and eclectic assortment of interesting pieces. Very wide range of excellent brushes. Symbols, signs, and some other useful stuff.

Places to go, stories to read.

Grayling is a beautifully drawn, well-written and intelligently crafted story - highly original too.  I love it, although I haven't read up to the current day yet, so I don't know how often it updates. Boy Meets Boy was a delightful little comic that has unfortunately ended.  I don't know how much longer the archives are gonna be up, but it's really quite good, so get it while you can!

Grayling online comic/graphic novel

Boy Meets Boy online comic
Very unique story, highly interesting characters, beautifully drawn and masterfully colored.  If the red-head with the multiple personalities doesn't snag you, the irritable cat-girl will! Really REALLY funny.   Classic webcomic about college life with gamers.  Or gamer-life in college.   All depends on how you look at it.


Very clearly drawn, well-colored in.  Interesting semi-human characters abound, and the dragon is really cute!

No, seriously, he's like a foot long and sarcastic.

An intriguing little comic that blurs the line between reality and dreams, but in a most entertaining fashion.  Usually black and white, with a style that's fun to follow.

Brilliant. Just brilliant. It's being published in book form now, the author/artist's finally making enough money to support himself this way. Where I first met l33tSp34k.



Other fun things to see.

A friend of mine who is an excellent writer has her work up on this site.  While a huge and highly intelligent fan of the anime Shoujo Kakumei Utena, she also has some excellent original fiction and essays.

This is a profound, beautifully-thought-out, well-written essay on self.  Another friend of mine, Cassie Nichols, (whose site is full of great icons and other interesting things), wrote it, and I read it back before I knew what an amazing writer she is.  Astonished, I asked to put it up on my site when I got it up and running, and I've finally gotten a chance to keep my promise.  People should read this.  It's beautiful, and it should resonate with anyone who's ever felt that labels don't fit.
