About Me:

Jayagain
The short version:

I draw, I love horror movies, and I play video games while consuming gourmet coffee and/or Pepsi. Married with cats.

The long version:
I’m a Southern belle living in Pennsylvania with my husband and two very spoiled black cats.  I like good conversation, excellent coffee and comfortable company.

I love watching movies; I prefer horror, thrillers, and giallo, as well as well-made period pieces (and I’m also a huge fan of Lord of the Rings and Star Wars).

Musically, I’m all over the board.  I have too many releases from Cryo Chamber and Projekt and the sadly defunct Cold Meat Industry to count.  I also love to listen to Sabaton, Powerwolf, and too many other music things to list here o_o

When I’m not drawing, I’m probably knitting or spinning.  Maybe reading.  Or cooking.  I do cook a lot.  Or I might be playing any number of games– I play several MMORPGs and love horror survival.

About the Art:

My art is very personal.  I enjoy drawing pin-ups, fantasy (dark and light!), and whatever weird shades drift into my imagination.  I’m especially fond of critters– anything strange and unusual will normally make me smile as I go about drawing them.

Back in the early part of the century, I had some of my work published for the now-defunct Khan’s Press and Lethal Comics.  I was one of several very talented artists to be featured in “The World of Wraith” artbook by the inimitable Grant Gould. Recently, I designed flyers for Dean’s Harley-Davidson in Sellersville, PA (under new management).  I’m now also adding my talents to the efforts of Missing Worlds Media, for the upcoming superhero MMO, City of Titans.

I do most of my art with pencils; what kind I use depends on what effect I’m going for.  Most commonly, I use, regular mechanical pencils.  Sometimes, I use a variety of drawing pencils, carbon, and colored pencils.  I like Canson paper, and my preferred size is 11″x14″ or larger.  I also really enjoy drawing on toned paper.

When I work digitally, I’m prone to using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, Clip Studio Paint, and Photoshop.  I use a Wacom Intuos 3 tablet– I am very brand-loyal to Wacom; I used a Graphire 2 tablet for a good 12 years before upgrading to the Intuos.  Matter of fact, the Graphire is still going strong, and my spouse has adopted it for his own nefarious purposes.  I recently aquired a Samsung ATIV SmartPC, which is AWESOME for art!

About the Domain:

The domain WallsOfEryx.net was registered on May 18, 2004 with 1 and 1, and is hosted at Site Flip.  The name comes from the story by H.P. Lovecraft, which is one of my favorites.  Check it out– it’s a good read :3

Wow, things do change.  After nearly a decade with SiteFlip, I had to stop using their hosting– a spammer was using my email address, and I was getting blamed for the whole thing, plus they threatened to charge me because of what a third party was doing!  So on 12/28/2013, I cancelled my hosting and started up with Bluehost.  They offered me a new domain name as well, so I went with the name my art site had originally had, so so so many years ago– Pyewackit :3

I used to code everything in Notepad, but you know what they say– the times, they are a-changin’.  I was using a b2evolution CMS, but switched to WordPress when my databases kept corrupting.
