Hello c: I am a mixed-black, queer, Canadian illustrator who is brand-spanking new to comic-creation and have a personal story I have wanted to tell for many years now.
Poor Peculiar Threads has been on hiatus until recently - I'm new at this and overloaded myself. But, Peculiar Threads is resuming and will update every 1st and 15th of each month.
Peculiar Threads features a cast of diverse LGBTQIA+ folks of many races and ethnicities as they gather from all over the world into my universe's pocket dimension in their times of need. Romance and deeply-involved relationships are not the focal point of the story, but their existence and identities are still important things that contribute to each individual character and the world I've built around them.

The main character, a god-like entity, is neurodivergent and has symptoms and conditions that may be relatable to autistic folks, those with ADHD, and those with learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. The story is centered around a mixture of the joy and frustration he experiences while trying to just be himself.
Naturally, many of the MC's challenges are my own. I grew up and struggled undiagnosed until college with many learning disabilities and mental conditions. Creating and developing this character was how I coped with my frustration, and Peculiar Threads is essentially my own voice. c: I hope to do my little story justice!
