Artist Feature: Parasite-Z
“First and foremost, I’m a storyteller”
What are your goals as an artist?
I would like to inspire creative thinking. I like creating big worlds with species, monsters, races, religions and everything in between, though up to this point I’m a bit secretive with my worlds because I would like to really make an impact with my work. I’ve always wanted to be a novelist and I would love to also be able to illustrate companion images to my stories that perfectly project what I see inside my head.
Are there any projects you’re working on?
I almost always have projects going on with friends as well as solo projects. My two solo projects at the moment are Gutless and After10. Gutless is a novel that I’d love to eventually bring to life as a visual novel as well, while After10 is strictly comic. After10 is my pet project to launch into more serious comics as it’s a shorter story consisting of only 10 chapters (2 volumes) that is strictly following character development.
Why do you want more viewers and what do you feel you have to offer your audience?
Honestly, I don’t think more viewers is exactly what I want, rather I would love to be able to share stories with people that are genuinely interested. First and foremost, I’m a storyteller. My art brings another element to my stories. If you’d like content steeped in plot, then by all means, I have a love for my stories that I would love to share with you.
How often do you update and how serious are you about your art?
Depending on how much I work and what’s going on in personal life, I sometimes update frequently to once a month. But if you follow me across multiple social media sites, you’re bound to get more frequent updates. I’m extremely serious about my art. I fully intend to indie publish After10 as well as launch it as a webcomic.
