I'm a 20 something artist who's been drawing his whole life and making books almost as long. While I've picked up techniques in several different mediums I've mostly kept to pencil/sketch work, and stuff in Photoshop. Overall I'm just a creative guy who always needs to be making something, I find that if I don't satisfy my creative urges... I go insane.

Over the past couple of years I've been keeping occupied with the creation of a zine series entitled: Wannabe With Goat.

For more regular updates and wips of pages check out the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/wannabewithgo…

To purchase an issue or two of Wannabe With Goat swing by the Etsy store:

So it looks like it's February the 7th again so I've re-scribbled my mascot in celebration.  Two whole years now.  I think I've made a couple of improvements along the way.

Another milestone is that I've hit 25 watches.  I decided to celebrate that I'd draw something for the lucky 25th watcher, :iconpunk-a-cat:.  While I'd prefer to do a gift of an OC or something it doesn't seem like you have any with what I've seen in your gallery.  Alternatively I'd be happy to do an illustration for one of your many stories or poems, or you might be able to persuade me into doing some kinda fanart (but if it's nothing that really interests me I'll find it tough going).  So have a think on what kind of gift you'd like, because I would like to give you something, or if you even want a gift from me.  All entirely up to you.


And now, here is the Border Breaker for 2015!

So since the last time there've been a couple developments, both small and large.  I'm still working away on Issue 14 (good things take time), still learning a few things here and there, duelling that voice in my head, and still sussing out this new program(just the other day I found out how to crop and resize files in Manga Studio! (I'm still using PS a little mostly because I'm not entirely happy with MS's tonal correction abilities)). The other thing is the billboard project has been put on hold for a possibly permanent hiatus.  Fortunately the contractor is a neat guy and paid me out for everything I'd done so far, which is cool, and has a list of other projects he'd like for me do (or even just look at, I think).  So that all seems exciting!

Incase you've forgotten there may be more pages form old zines over on Facebook: www.facebook.com/wannabewithgoat
And if you're interested at all in getting a copy of an issue they're over on Etsy: www.etsy.com/nz/shop/BorderBreakingDesign

Anyway, another big thanks to everyone who've supported and/or inspired me the past year! Cheers!

Mind Breakers by BorderBreaker
Mind Breakers
Not only was :iconpunk-a-cat: my 25th watcher but she also seems to be an avid supporter of my scribbles and a really nice person so I wanted to make sure I did the best I could manage for this gift based on her great story Mind Breakers.

I was given a bit of creative leeway with this so I suppose you could say that this is just my take on her characters. As with most other gifts and fan-like arts I try to keep as accurate to the source material as possible, but here I took a little liberty with the scene just for compositions sake. Be sure to read the sampling at the link above, it's a good read with lots of future potential.

Anyway, I hope you like you gift Miss 25th watcher! Despite it taking almost a month to make.... sorry.

Mind Breakers [WIP]
Sketched WIP of a gift for :iconpunk-a-cat: based on her great story Mind Breakers.
Let me know what you think! Is the hairs good? And etcetera.

Need to get the background done (some research needed for that) and any changes PuNK-A-CaT requests, then to inking!


All finished! fav.me/d8k7pmd
