    I grew up in Florida hunting giant squids and dinosaurs. Over the years these ancient creatures started disappearing, leaving only visions and memories of those once great adventures.

     

    Now living in Seattle, enjoying the rain and re-telling my stories by creating artwork of epic creatures, cute characters, and their mysterious descent into the darkness.

  • Keith’s artwork has been compared to that of Maurice Sendak, Tim Burton, and Edward Gorey. His characters may look cute and innocent, but they usually have somewhat of a dark side to them.

     

    On July first the mobile game, Raven Conspiracy, was released after five years of hard work by himself and three other close industry colleagues.

     

    Up next is Ellie Not Forgotten, Keith's first graphic novel. It is still in the early development stages, but feedback from the script has been extremely positive. To get an early look at how it is developing, please head over to his Patreon site where you can follow the journey for $1 a month. http://www.patreon.com/keithnoordzy where you will get to see rough layout sketches, concept designs of characters, locations, etc. After the layout is done, the rewards will open up to include more options
