Abstract

Most recently, I have been developing a series that takes place in one metaphysical realm. Small totemic clans have inhabited this world. They are divided by habitat, animality, anatomy, and belief systems. My focus is specifically on the intimate rituals they must perform and all the tools and garb that goes with them. I am interested in informing these fantastical peoples with my personal history of growing up in a Western Catholic environment combined with my new research into Eastern philosophy and faith structures. As the series progresses crossovers and inter-clan relationships seem inevitable.
