What is this? 🍃

1 small quiet somewhere is an address of sorts to a little place. It’s also a personal creative project with no particular objective or schedule. Things will move along at the pace that time and focus allows. Feel free to dip in and out wherever you like. All the pieces are intended to be related in some fashion, but there’s no specific chronology or sequence to follow.

Content categories

📖 Stories: Narrative things (e.g., comics, illustrated prose).

🖼️ Snippets: Not really-narrative things (e.g., art, poetry)

🌿 Background: Rough and explanatory materials (e.g., wips/sketches, bios).


🐎 Kanthaka: Seems to be a Buddhist monk centaur. His favourite treat is sugar-apples.

💭 Little Yì: A very small yì. Loves ear scratches and head rubs.
