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
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
Righty, lots of bits and bobs happening. Let's just say I'm working on at least 5 different comics/storyboards these days, including Jamie's Epoch and new episodes of Johnny Steve's Miraculous Trip

Now we won't be seeing Jamie's Epoch for a little while, but I do have about 40 more episodes of JSMT all drawn up, so once I've inked them, I'll start uploading them one day at a time

There's other stuff on the way too hopefully, but knowing how things go, that won't be for a while, so we'll just go along with it as it comes

I've uploaded a Time Lapse of NJ Campfire in super-low quality because of smello software issues and all that jazz. I'd've uploaded it to dA but that didn't work out, so here it is on YouTube instead ;D

Keep on kicking butt and thanks for your support guys ^^
