After the demise of my own website about nine months ago I finally have a clear idea of what comes next!   :-)

I was using the website to create my own alternative universe and raise money for children's charities and conservationist projects. I used to post representative illustrations from the website here on deviantart to draw attention to the new items posted on the website, which featured a lot of artwork created by brilliant artists here on DA.   :-)

My plan now is to bring some of the complete ex-website features (rather than individual examples extracted from those features) here to share with you on deviantart. I plan to focus on features about the creation of my own universe (Newbold World) and I intend to display some of the original website features and some of the new post-website features being created right now. All the features will be illustrated and the vast majority of them have been or are being illustrated by artists here on deviantart.    :-)

The Skoog Astral Plane sits at the heart of the alternative universe called Newbold World. We are creating illustrated histories, stories and poetry about Skoog. I plan to show you some of the Skoog Profiles that tell you a little about the more famous or more interesting Skoog personalities and characters here in my deviantart Gallery. In the fulness of time I intend to bring you some of the histories of Skoog and its stories and poetry in my deviantart Portfolios.

I have finally made a start by posting three deviations featuring three of my original Skoog characters to introduce you to the notion of Skoog Profiles. The characters are Monsewer Raconteur, the Lady Crimson Darkbrush and the Lady Mishkina. We'll try to bring you something new at least once a month and we'll tell you whenever something new arrives in journal entries here in this DA Gallery.   :-)


Ian Newbold
United Kingdom
Hello everyone. My name is Ian Newbold and I'm an amateur storyteller rather than an artist. I enjoy looking at all the brilliant artwork here on deviantart and occasionally I commission artists to help bring my words to life.

That ancient storyteller up above is called Monsewer Raconteur (artwork by Cindy Dukino) and he is an Elder Lord of Skoog who has chosen to manifest in the form of humankind. He is President of the Skoog Guild of Storytellers which is based in the City of Antiquity on the Skoog Astral Plane.

The Skoog Astral Plane sits at the heart of Newbold World which is an alternative universe being created here in cyberspace. The Elder Lords of Skoog are the masters of the most ancient and sophisticated magics and can travel across time, space and and dimensions. They are the architects behind the creation of Newbold World.

The Skoog Guild of Storytellers is writing the history of this alternative universe and the stories that portray the exploits of its most famous personalities and characters. The Skoog Guild of Artists (several of whom have galleries here on deviatart) are providing artwork to help bring the written words to life.

Monsewer Raconteur and his colleagues are planning to tell you a little more about the creation of Newbold World. Skoog Profiles will appear in this gallery from time to time to introduce you to some of the Skoog personalities and characters and their backgrounds. In the fullness of time the Skoog Histories and some of the Skoog Stories will begin to appear in devianart portfolios. Each new arrival will be announced here in this gallery by means of a journal entry.
