A sketch collection, featuring my favorite sketches, commissions, and illustrations from the past year.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

24 HOURS LEFT for Mind Astray 2022!!
about 1 year ago – Wed, Mar 01, 2023 at 08:50:57 AM

There are just 24 HOURS LEFT to lock in your copy of Mind Astray 2022! We got 10 more backers since yesterday and now we're just 22 away from getting over that 100 backer threshold!

Can we make it! Can we hit that illustrious stretch goal?

CLICK HERE to go to the Kickstarter page and be part of the victory!

Even if we don't make it over 100 backers, everyone will be getting this sick bonus bundle of digital comics with their reward:

And everyone will be getting a personalized shout out from me in the big post-campaign thank you video.

We are so close to getting over 100 backers, but there are still loads of awesome bonus freebies even if we don't. So it's win-win-win all around.

I like those odds.

More soon!

Till then, be good!

But not too good 😉

over 1 year ago – Fri, Feb 03, 2023 at 09:05:09 AM

The headline did not lie!

Mind Astray 2022 is live!

CLICK HERE to go to the Kickstarter page!

And don't forget, everyone who backs for a physical reward within the first 24 hours will get an exclusive signed mini print of the cover art with their reward!

And on top ofthat, every backer will be getting a handpicked bonus bundle of digital comics, created by my awesome indie artist friends!

I’ve got a fun bonus in store for everyone if we can get over 100 backers this year!

But I'm not telling what it is unless we get over 100 backers. Cause I'm a tease like that.

COMING SOON: Mind Astray 2022!
over 1 year ago – Wed, Jan 25, 2023 at 09:26:41 AM

That’s right, kids!

In just ten days, that’s a week from Friday, on February 3 ( 2-3-2023 ), I will be launching the Kickstarter for Mind Astray 2022!

CLICK HERE and hit the button to get notified as soon as it launches!

Bigger and better than before! All my favorite, sketches, drawings, doodles, cartoons, commissions, and miscellaneous artistic brain farts from 2022! And it won’t be complete without your edition to it! Just like last year, if you get a commission as a part of this campaign, it will be in your copy! That’s right, no two books will be the same! Your copy will be unique to you!

And you are most definitely going to want to get notified when it launches, because everyone who backs at a physical tier before the end of the first 24 hours is going to get this exclusive signed mini print of the cover art with their reward!

And on top ofthat, every backer will be getting a handpicked bonus bundle of digital comics, created by my awesome indie artist friends!

Last year was the first time I ever did a sketchbook campaign, and almost 100 backers made it a smashing success! I’ve got a fun bonus in store for everyone if we can get over 100 backers this year!

Let’s smash that record!

Will we make it? I don’t know! But I’m going to need your help to do it!

See you next Friday!

Till then, be good!

ONE WEEK LEFT for CONCRETE ARCANUM
over 1 year ago – Fri, Oct 21, 2022 at 03:43:01 PM

ONE WEEK LEFT TO BACK CONCRETE ARCANUM!!

The window of opportunity on this Kickstarter is fast coming to a close! And in honor of our grand finale, I have created a new reward tier that combines all the fantastic digital comics from the Creator Compendium and The Digital Lueth Crate reward tiers into one titanic collection!

The DIGITAL EXTRAVAGANZA

Featuring over ONE THOUSAND PAGES of comics from all the fantastic creators that helped to make Concrete Arcanum possible! A plethora of awesome indie books, all in one place and at a fraction of the price!

This Tier includes:

• Concrete Arcanum

* Canon of Vangel, Issue 1, by Nathan Lueth

* The Complete Impure Blood by Nathan Lueth

* Mind Astray 2021

* Nathanthology

* Alchemist of Aurillia, by MJ Massey

* Digital Forever by Matthew Kund

* Mandrill P. I. By Chris Bridge

* Fangs and Foul Play by Leanne Ingino

* The Purple Door District by Erin Casey

* A Field Guide to Brain Weasels by Brooke Lydick

* Starlite by Travis Webb

* Katrina Hates the Dead by Russell Nohelty

* Ennead: The Rule of Nine by J.L. Johnson

* Gorilla My Dreams: Mime of My Life by Big Tim Stiles

* Rainy Day Dreams by Mariah Currey

* Rift Riders by Christopher Beck

* Expired by Travis Gibbs

* Turner Family Terrors by Robert Krisch

Rather than track down each and every book, which would cost you like $200 if you bought them individually, you can get them all here for just $65! That’s 70% OFF!! A $135 SAVINGS!

And that’s not even counting the ten bonus comic bundles you’ll get if you back before we cross the 75% threshold!


There’s only one week left to snag this tremendous steal of a reward tier and I want to make sure everyone has a chance at it.

CLICK HERE to back Concrete Arcanum!


It’s down to the wire! And whatever happens, I do hope you’ll join us 1 week from today at 11:30 AM CST for our Kickstarter wrap party!  I’m going to see how many of the creators I can get to come in costume. It’s goin to be a treat!

A trick or treat, as it were…

I’ll show myself out.


More soon! Till then, be spooky!

But not too spooky! 🎃

Giveaway Time
over 1 year ago – Wed, Oct 12, 2022 at 01:39:03 PM

It's official!

The Concrete Arcanum campaign is half over and Kickstarter looooovvves us! ♥️♥️♥️

And to celebrate, I think it's high time we had ourselves a giveaway!

I've got four of these slick pouches from Creating Meraki studios (also available as an add-on) that I'm going to give away this week!

Each one is handmade featuring the Concrete Arcanum cover art, reinforced for durability and lined. Perfect for keeping your spell components safe and dry! 8 inches wide, 5.5 inches tall, and 1.75 inches deep along the bottom edge (which allows this bag to stand on its own).


All you have to do to be eligible is to back Concrete Arcanum at a tier that includes a physical book, and to answer the question of the day!

And today that question is:

Who or what is your favorite monster?


Doesn't matter if their from movies, novels, or comics. Who or what is the best monster in your book?

(For me it's Alucard from Kohta Hirano's Hellsing. He's an unstoppable, unapologetic monster with no regrets. Until you plumb his depths a bit, at which point he becomes incredibly complex.)


Just CLICK HERE to go to the post page and leave your answer in the comments below the update!

If you've already backed at a digital tier, you can adjust your pledge to a physical book to be eligible.

If you've already backed at a digital tier, you can adjust your pledge to a physical book to be eligible.


Good luck! I can't wait to see who or what gives you the spooky-dooks!

More soon!

Till next time, be spooky!

But not too spooky 😉
