"A Close Call"
As Alex Dorsey looks across the yard at Mariangela Diaz, he has no idea that in 99.99999% of the parallel universes that him and Mariangela both exist in, they actually meet at this party and embark on a horribly destructive and lengthy love affair that ruins both of their lives and leaves them bitter, hollow shells of their former selves… creating a legacy of pain and sorrow for generations.
FORTUNATELY, this version of Alex and Mariangela happen to live in the parallel reality where Mariangela picked up smoking at the age of 16 (which only occurs in .00001% of the parallel universes she and Alex exist in), so that when Alex spotted her from across the room, he thought to himself “I don’t like smoking” and then quickly looked away… never to think of her again.
While each of their paths in time always lead them here to this party, in this universe they thankfully do not continue together… both of them never knowing how close they came to lives of pure misery.
"The Long, Dark Bathtime for the Soul"
Sitting in the tub, only a small candle for a light
The flame flickers on the wall, barely holding back the night.
Wanting to take an escape from life’s eternal wrath
Christiane wasn’t sure what to do, so she took a bath.
The wax drips down the sides, hardening as it goes
And Christiane stretches out her limbs, popping bubbles with her toes.
She soaks and dwells, internally yells, at all that has gone wrong
It all feels like it lasts forever, but it isn’t really very long.
The water has cooled, her skin has pruned, and the bubbles dissipated
So Christiane is forced to return to her life earlier than she anticipated
She remembers to remember, that it’s all okay because
None of it really matters, except the stuff that does.

"Thoughts upon the Shuttle"
Halfway through the 14 hour shuttle ride from his parent’s home on Earth to his boarding school a few star systems over, Caleb McDaniels looks up from the homework he was meant to do over his Spring break and finds himself getting lost in the sea of stars out the window.
Having traveled this route back and forth from school every few months for several years now, he was quite bored with the long trip through space, and was equally bored with the thought of doing his homework to occupy himself.
He stares at the same stars he always sees, and just lets his mind wander.
Each year he feels like the visit home is becoming more and more of a hassle for his parents… Maybe he just won’t go home anymore, so that his return doesn’t always put them out. Home isn’t really home anyways.
The dreary planet below, some polluted backwater baby-Earth named QiiQ, catches Caleb’s eye as the shuttle travels past. They still haven’t been connected to the interstellar routes, leaving anyone on the planet to be stuck where they are for their entire lives.
Caleb tries to picture what life would be like down there; how his point of view would be different if he was raised there and not on Earth, how his mindset just wouldn’t be the same… It looks like nothing but dirt and sadness from up here.
He feels sad for the QiiQians, but he also knows he’s just saying that to himself because he’s supposed to. He doesn’t really care.
Cursing himself for not bringing a book (he told himself that if he brought a book he wouldn’t do his homework but he should know himself well enough to know that he wasn’t going to do the homework either way), Caleb will spend the rest of the trip unsuccessfully trying to nap and hoping no one sits next to him.
Like cats? Like amazing illustrators? Like my work sometimes?
I’m lucky enough to be included in the exciting show, arranged by my for real favourite illustrator Laura Hughes. It’s gonna be great, and you should come!
A human emotion.
1 of 4 works towards a cat theme exhibition next month in London. Prints will be available to purchase at the show and online.
Mage character design development. ✨ I want to get it spot on before moving into the sculpting stage with him. #Illustration #FawnLorn #MattHayton #CharacterDesign
Today @ajpritchett and I finished our first collaborative project, Broin the Forest Mage. 🌿 Super pleased with how he turned out. All the sculpting by me (including the pendent) and all the accessories and clothing by Adam. Hopefully we’re gonna continue collaborating and make more characters from the same universe. ✨ #FawnLorn #MattHayton #AdamPritchett #CharacterDesign #StopMotion #SomeonePleaseEmployUs
