About Lily. One woman. Two sides. Lily Author for dark fiction. Lily Dark for art and graphic novels.
Hi, I’m Lily. Lily Author to those who read my stories, Lily Dark to those who enjoy my art. But you knew that.
So here I am, looking around the world wide web in 2018, updating my site (again) and seeing a different world. The net has changed a lot since I started using it in the 90s. Yes, that’s the 1990s. A lot of amazing changes. A lot of not so great changes. And I’m still here, in my corner of the web, spinning tales and creating art. Because I can.
I’m also tired. That sounds bad, doesn’t it? Hear me out.
I don’t want to write a bio. Perfect SEO is not a high priority for me. I write the most popular “how to market yourself” article. My website is about the art. Thank you for joining my creative world. I give you the warmest welcome. Glad you’re here.
Let’s talk about art.
That’s me in 2009, around the time I committed to a real website instead of depending on Google Blogger to carry me along. (WordPress wasn’t that advanced yet).
I had big plans back then, and I still do. Truth be told, I’ve only scanned and added about 20 – 30% of art or stories to my website. I share with the world what I hope is my best creepy and funniest stuff. Could I create better art or write better stories? Always. Art never dies.
And over here is me in 2011, wearing my Halloween costume that year. I call it Spider Baby. No one got the reference to the classic black and white film. Of course. Regardless, it’s still one of my favourite costumes.
Did I mention I love Halloween? I mean, I love Halloween. Did I also mention I’m Canadian, use Canadian spellings, and I have a dry Canadian sense of humour? You already knew all that? Moving on to 2017…
For 2017 Halloween I wanted to do something completely different. I’ve always gone for horror and blood-drenched costumes (which I love), but this time, for the first time, I wanted to try the opposite. So I present to you Lily the Silent Film Star.
And there’s always next year…
