Information about me: Most of my work focuses on Graphic Novels, Comics and Writing. I am inspired by fantasy, sci-fi, philosophy and adventure and much of what I do involves imagining stories and worlds and creating believable characters (or, in a lot of cases, unbelievable characters made of randomness). I was born and raised in Wales by a Canadian mother and a Danish father. The Nuclear Jackal is a character that I created and he has become my internet identity.

So many people have drawn NJ in their own style that I've made a Hub for all the artwork :XD:

NJ Artwork HubA hub for all the NJ-related Art and Fan Art B-):horns:

This is in regards to the character Nuclear Jackal B-) NJ was originally a logo I drew in College. I then made a surreal self-portrait I did based on the logo, and he soon became very popular as a character and makes appearances in my comic, Johnny Steve's Miraculous Trip http://fav.me/d6hbpb7
NJ himself doesn't have a backstory (feel free to make your own backstory if you like). However he's a shapeshifter who can transform into various forms, including a female version of himself, and he can also duplicate himself into many forms, so he can be in two places at once. 
All artwork regarding the Nuclear Jackal that is uploaded by me, NuclearJackal , is official. Artwork done by others is unofficial (and awesome too! :clap:
Are Nuclear Jackals a species? Well officially there is only one Nuclear Jackal, who can take on different forms and multiply itself. However, if Nuclear Ja

Dad's Nostalgia by NuclearJackal
Su Lok, also known as Project W (both are placeholder names until we come up with something definite) started out as a roleplay project by NuclearJackal and Tengu-Arts. Both would take turns writing paragraphs and making up the story as they went along. This led to many surprises, scenarios and ideas being formed. The project then developed further through re-writes, re-designs and concept art.

It currently consists of tests and concept art, nothing is quite definite. It could end up as a graphic novel or something similar, or the characters could end up in other stories, somewhat redesigned. We'll see how things go ^__^

Hey Matt, I decided to start carving bowls. I like unusual shapes, plus this one was a termite nest. I hope to start carving creatures in them as part of the piece like lizards on the edges or snakes curled inside them just for fun--lol
