< THE GRAND UNFOLDING OF DEEP PROCESSES >

I'm Erin Shimamoto, an artist and author, and dabbling musician. I also nurture an interest in sociology and history. I live in Kentucky, assembled in California from parts made in Japan (so to speak).
I have been drawing since I was old enough to speak, although I only really started pursuing technical skill at the age of 16. If you haven't started drawing yet, I strongly encourage you to pick up the pencil yourself some time. Anyone can learn!
A HARD SCIENCE FANTASY MULTIVERSE WHERE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN
It's the year 5555 AD. Earth is long lost, but numberless billions live spread across ten thousand star systems in the Known Space of the infinite multiverse. Across this diverse scattershot of worlds, advanced tech and bona fide magic are facts of everyday spacefaring life, backdropped by the clash of great political blocs, while abstract and impalpable entities flicker about in the shadows...
And for reasons poorly understood, Known Space seems to accumulate scores of lost souls - those who stepped through a mysterious doorway in some long-abandoned building, victims of a teleportation spell gone wrong, people kidnapped by strange beings and then cast aside with their minds half-scrambled, spacers who had a close brush with some inscrutable old artifact. As more of these unwitting visitors have cropped up and melded into transhuman civilization, some have eked it out on their own, while others have formed the Wanderers' Societies, organizations to locate and shelter others like them - and in some cases, to protect them from the prying eyes of authorities whose interest, or ire, may be drawn by the unique abilities and qualities of visitors from parts unknown.
Standard Candles is a world where any crossover is fair game.
