|I'm taking a little break from the current manga style art work. It was so refreshing (not to mention challenging!) to try something new!|
A Mother's Son - Chapter 1A Mother's Son - Chapter 1 by brietta-a-m-f
At thirteen and three quarters, Murtagh knew all of the hiding places and escape routes from his family’s home. In the wee hours of the morning, before the sun was even considering peeking over the horizon pf the Ozark hills, he knew just which spots of the floor would squeal like an alarm if he stepped on them. So, barefooted with sneakers in hand, he crept as silently as a cat down the hall from his bedroom to the bathroom window on the ground floor. His mother had set alarms on all the doors that were switched on each night. Ostensibly, they were to discourage burglars, but Murtagh knew that they were also to catch him sneaking out.
As mayor, and Silver Springs, Missouri’s loudest voice against magic, Erin Brannagh was as shocked as anyone to discover that her own son was a water wizard.

Welcome to my lair! |
Well, my virtual lair, anyway, where I post my creative exploits, experiments and many unfinished projects. Most commonly, you will see traditional sketches, portraits and landscapes, and well as prose writing. I've got art/writings based in horror, sci-fi, fantasy, historical periods, wildlife, something for almost everyone really. I am truly a jack of all trades, dabbling in everything, mastering none of them. But that's okay so long as I can have a bit of fun!
By the way, in that photo up there, I'm the one in the white hat, not the famous actor. Just so there's no confusion!
Thanks for stopping by!
