Dearest Everyone, I hope you all have been staying safe during these difficult times. If this message reaches you, I just want to let you know that you are very much appreciated for sticking with me for however long you have.


As you may already know, I do lots of art stuff - visual arts, music, and writing to say the least. While it may appear on first sight to be unfocused and unrelated, my main goal throughout these endeavors is to complete a large project involving all of the mediums. It is to complete my novel, Sooted Star, and then apply it to various media such as a graphic novel, a film, or a video game, perhaps many other things.

You may wonder, “What exactly is the point of this novel? Why should I care?” I often wonder what the point of doing art-related stuff is, too, as life gradually becomes more difficult to handle. But in the end, I genuinely hope that Sooted Star can become a piece of media that inspires people to see the world as something able to be less divided than it is. We can work to understand other people and move towards less harmful views.

With its diverse cast of characters and a world-encapsulating (interdimensional) story about divided categories of people who can’t seem to reconcile, I want to make it a journey about shrinking such divides anywhere in the universe. What connects us? How can we acknowledge the differences between us while working towards equality, and if not, equity?

As I understand times are tough these days and the pandemic doesn’t seem to be letting up any time soon, I don’t expect anyone to contribute actual money. But I will leave this information about commissions anyway, as I honestly do need a bit of money from willing people who are able to afford it. Perhaps if I get a decent amount of commissions, I will reveal some Sooted Star related content.


All the best to you~

#jaecadinWBSeptember The challenge? So far so good. Here is an update for days 1-11!


Day 1: OC & intro

  • OC: Zeijien

  • Species: ??

  • Gender: ?? Pronouns are the story default: "zei/en"

  • Living place: Rokon, in the Sooted Star Realm (SSR)

  • Narrative positive traits: kind, wise, spontaneous

  • Narrative negative traits: perfectionist, unmotivated

Day 2: Other OC (friends, etc) & intros


Day 3_ Main OC's living space


Day 4: A road in their city/town/rural

  • Will color later since it's very hard to tell what everything is. But let's just say there are wall gardens, sky roads, and portals.

Day 5: OC's family Interaction + Day 6: OC & friends hangout spot

  • These days are combined since Zeijien's friends are huir (pr. "hear") family and they like to hang out in downtown Rokon square often.

Day 7: OC's favorite creature of myth

  • I'll give you a hint, it isn't the dragon. They are the creepy eyes (ft. Zeijien in the form of a dragon passively pondering).

  • Aecadian's voidlings

  • Messengers of the god, Aecadian.

  • Often manifests on objects people typically write on.

  • They see... a great many things.

Day 8: Doing the prominent cultural combat style

  • Long before the exergians (people without senergie) had technology, they developed a method of hand-to-hand combat with the purpose of dampening the effects of senergie. Of course, it wasn't all that helpful because senergie is way more powerful, but there's still something to it.

Day 9: Doing a common greeting vs personal greeting

  • "Common" greeting is actually more like a formal greeting.

Day 10: Interacting w/ animals common in the area.

  • There are plenty of ketstis in the area, much like cats but they have an affinity for jumping long distances and underwater "sonar" with the whisker-like things on their heads. The birds are similar in that they dive for fish, as indicated by the pouches under their necks and the fake extra eyes to trick the fish that have evolved to know when a gaze is directed at them, though the birds will eat things other than fish, much like ravens and crows.

Day 11: Interacting w/ strangers

  • Sometimes you've got no choice when you're not the same species..except avoid saying "disease." When in doubt, the vaguer the better.
