A naive child, Rider, who always finds himself getting into trouble meets Pierce, the kindhearted adventurer, and Nondis, a smug knucklehead, and chaos ensues.
This is the fantasy story of their shenanigans in days full of friends, adventure, mayhem, and mana!
Hey! I'm Ashley, but I go by himawariness online. I'm from NYC! :)
I always love thinking about my characters and trying to make things out of them! Rider, Pierce, and Nondis were my first characters that I made back in 2011 when I was in middle school. They've changed and evolved over the years, but I'm super happy to finally start telling their story.
If I'm not working on the comic, I'm usually working on games or other art! Feel free to follow me at the places below!
