Adagio - A character from my forthcoming volume 2 of The_Mecha_Genesis. One of the first characters I drew years ago as part of this world. His story has evolved through out the years much like my drawing skill. Learn his story this June.
The Mecha Genesis
Hello fellow beings from Earth. The_Mecha_Genesis is now officially on Patreon. If you would like to support the project in anyway this is the best way! There some some great rewards, check them all out here.
Your contributions will make it possible for me to achieve my first goal of creating a dedicated Mecha Genesis website where you will be able to access all the characters, their stories and also read all the additional historical events as well as the citation sources. The possibilities are endless with the format and the history is deep.
For instance, the period of time called "The Breaking Nations" or when Mynd made contact with the Aues - The first off world sentient species to interact with us. Read about the "great northern migrations" caused by the onset of the A1 Ice shelf or how Ellco Verun corp rose to commercial success through orbital fleet mining near the moons of Saturn. Find out what the Anzodus discovered during the 2999 Genix delegations and listen to the myths of the Gravtherical beings rumored to be 400 million years old.
I Would like to add that I'm not there to try and pump out average art every day. I want to spend time creating a high quality product for you every 3 months or so. This means that you will receive something of higher value at the end of each project rather than small rushed digital items every day. I will eventually be giving out free prizes and special edition hard covers as give away's.
This is just the start and I'd love you to be a part of it.
Just sent out the first Mecha_Genesis mail drop. Pretty happy to know its getting out there into peoples hands to read for the first time ever. Enjoy!
On April the 8th I launch my first graphic novel at Chromacon 2017. Big thanks to all those who came out to support The_Mecha_Genesis and all the other artist exhibiting. It was a blast. Big thanks to Elena, Link, Allan, Henry, Mike, Mukpuddy and everyone that bought a book. Glad to finally get it out there into your hands. Vol.1 is available online, and Vol.2 is in the works. Here are some photos from the launch.
The building of the stands. I made these so they would just snap togeather with no glue.
The building of the booth. Thanks to Henry Aitken for helping me set it up. A wild monkey appeard durring the build.
Building this booth gave me ideas for some designs for future volumes. Making the booth was part of building the world the Mecha_Genesis is set in. I wanted people to feel visually immersed in the world and enjoy it as an experience. I did not spend to much time on preping the booth but with a little more cash and a bit more planning the next one is going to be even more epic. Some details below.
The_Mecha_Genesis Vol.1 Softcover. Only $10NZ 28 pages of illustration and writing from a far away time, in a place nearby.

While waiting for my printed books to arrive, I have been crafting some hand made A6 mini zines. They will be available at Chromacon 2017 April 8th and 9th.
