The first chapter of Pokémon Rescue Centre is going up tonight!
I'm currently working on my first Pokémon fan fiction: a serial called Pokémon Rescue Centre set in something similar to an animal shelter. I'm also planning a Legend of Zelda story called Twilight Ambassadors, set after Twilight Princess. Stay tuned!
I'm phasing back into DeviantArt. I've been absent for the better part of three years, but I'm finally about to finish university and emerge a more learned and experienced writer. I'll try and throw together a journal entry in the next few weeks.

Jacob Martin Peter Graham, born 11 June 1994.

I've achieved a Bachelor of Arts degree with First-Class Honours in English and Creative Writing from the University of Salford.

At the moment, I'm an in-progress novelist working on the first of at least six fantasy stories set on the Isles of Izgarv (above) and other continents in the same world. Since drawing is a huge hobby of mine, some sketches of the characters in my stories have been uploaded into my gallery. They can all be found in my folders. I hope to reach a professional standard so that I can illustrate my own novels.

I also do a bit of fan art/fiction. I'm a huge fan of Pokémon and The Legend of Zelda, so you'll find some of that in my gallery.

I really hope you like my writing and illustrations!
Interests
Uni's been great. Right now, it's looking like I might have passed with a 1st class degree in English and Creative Writing, which would do wonders for my confidence. My Final Portfolio submission was an extract from the Book of Earth and it got a really pleasing mark of 75%. I don't know whether I should upload it to DA because it's the beginning of Chapter 12... Eh, maybe I will. I'll definitely be submitting the poems that I wrote for my course on 'Innovative Poetry', which got me...72%, if I remember correctly. (Correction: that was 75% too!)

Anyway, I got tagged by :iconmcrkilljoyforlife: so I'd better do this now! When you start doing these things again, that's when you know you've returned to DA in full.
