I am The Slig, and The Slig, Well, that’s me!
I create and produce Art, quite Independently.
I draw and I write, Hey, Isn’t that great?
Moreover, have recently been learning to animate.
Computers are fun! And the web is just grand!
In spite of the things’ I don’t understand.
Which is quite a lot, I’m sorry to say,
But gets smaller and smaller with each passing day.
Soon, I’ll know it all!
Yes, this was foretold!
Then with my luck my head will likely explode.

I’ve been drawing, creating since I can remember, though I really got hooked around the age of twelve.
I’ve worked in various media, including glass wood and metal, all self-taut.
I’ve dabbled in electronics, and some programming, ‘basic, ’c’ and trying to add Java, Javascript, and action script to my repartee. (Ain’t I just the most impressive little thingy?)

RPG, is another great love of mine. The ability to mold and participate in a separate reality? Incredible!
Most of the artwork that you see here is based on my, own fantasy universe, which I do make a point of visiting on a regular, sometimes-daily basis.
I’ve designed hundreds of tattoos, but don’t have one myself. (Never found one that suited?) Go, fig.
An example of my animation can be found here.

Also, currently I am trying to get my written works on line.
(I write under the name Dreaming bear, ’I’m an American Indian’, No, really! That’s my, actual Indian name.)
(More on that as it develops!)
I started in the realm of fan fiction and now am writing
in my own universe. (based on my R.PG)
my fledgling efforts can be found here.
While there are a lot of Artist who have inspired me, I’d say the two greatest influences on me would have to be John Byrne (Marvel comics) and H.R Giger. Yeah, one hell of a mix huh?
Byrne has a power of line and form, ‘that just screams off any page!
If you don’t know who Giger is…. Well, What hole have you been hiding in?
The master of Bio-mechanical imagery is amongst the most compelling and disturbing artist forces I have ever seen. Love or hate his work, it can’t be ignored.
Well, that’s’ about all I have to say at this point.
(Nobody else is gonna blow my horn right?)
Finally, for those not sound asleep, I hope you like my stuff.

Slig's log: Inaugural entry.

As I take command of this, the flagship of the federation… / Wait a second… / AHEM! / Ok, since this is, my first entry… / Actually, I have no clue what to say. / I suppose this is a learning process and I am eager to begin. / I have been drawing and creating most of my life, but now suddenly I find myself at a crossroads. / Down the tried and safe path I could eventually find …
