Journal History


the Agency of Monsters
New illustration for new blog entry on Higher Dark…the-agency-of-monsters talking about agency as in a person or character's desire, freedom and ability to make choices and affect their life, or in the case of a fictional character, affect the plot of the story. Got me thinking about certain monstrous and mystical characters in stories, so I explore the idea. A propaganda poster style just seemed ideal when I got the mental picture of the werewolf breaking free from chains. I don't usually use words in my blog illustrations, but I thought it was worth it just this time.
Hey! I have an Etsy shop! WhiteTigerDarkDragon is up with holiday cards and gifts featuring original fantasy art.
Going back to freelance work so hopefully will have more presence here and other social media. Feelin' more than a little out of touch.
Garbage In, Garbage Out: the Human Experience

Illustration for new Higher Dark blog entry:

Usually referring to how computers work: you put in correct facts, then ask the computer a question and it will give you the correct answer, but if you put in false facts, then ask the same question, the computer will give you an incorrect answer, but as far as the computer knows it is correct because all it knows is what you told it.

And most of the time, humans behave the same way
We know:
-what we’ve experienced personally
-what we’ve seen first-hand or observed from a distance
-what we’ve been told
-what we’ve intuited
…and how we interpret all four of those based on logic, emotion, and more intuition.

Dom and Sub
PLEASE NOTE: even though the subject behind the image is BDSM, there's no actual nude body parts or explicit sex going on in the image, so I did not mark as mature content. If you disagree, please message me directly, don't just report it. Why? Well, I believe in giving young people information and advice about sex rather than forcing them to seek disreputable sources like rumor and inexperienced peers, or forcing them to lie about their age to get into adult content. The linked article below is about the safe ways to engage in these kinds of relationships and is not a how-to with sexual description.

Illustration from my Higher Dark Blog entry talking about consent and communication not only in BDSM with human-bodied-people but also disembodied / nonphysical entities. Check out what I have to say on the similarities between the two:…

Incidentally, this image was created in Art Rage (a light version that came with my laptop) whereas most of the previous illustrations for the blog were in Manga Studio. I really am getting to like Art Rage as it's really handy for a lot of different things.


Rachel H White
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I am a writer/artist of various types of speculative fiction but mostly modern fantasy. I have loved magic, and the people and creatures who live with it and use it, all my life, and writing and drawing these people in modern environments makes it all the more real to me. I also like to add an element of Darkness and horror, as well as science fiction, for "flavor". I am fascinated with everything from unicorns and dragons to vampires and demons. As an artist I enjoy working in most any medium, but my favorites are pencil and digital painting.

Current Residence: Phoenix, AZ, USA
Favorite genre of music: ROCK (anything other than rap or country)
Favorite style of art: Pre-Raphaelite, modern fantasy illustration, Surrealism
MP3 player of choice: Pandora
Favorite cartoon character: Ada Lovelace on 2D Goggles webcomic!
Personal Quote: Writing is almost like putting together a puzzle, only it's more like taking a bunch of old family home movies, photographs, scrapbooks, and a dollhouse, and splicing them together, digitally retouching and altering them, dubbing in celebrity voices, and hand-writing the credits until you've made them into a major motion picture.
I'd like to work on a comic page. I haven't worked on a comic page in forever!

2nd Thought:
Well, I don't want to start a new comic because that takes so much time.

3rd Thought:
I have that comic I started and have a lot of sketches and work already done on it. However, the pages I did aren't great. I need to re-do them.

4th Thought:
But before I re-do them, I need to re-script them. And also, when I started that story, I wasn't writing it to be a comic, so the whole story really needs to be scripted.

5th Thought:
But if I'm going to do a script, I need to know how I'm going to structure pages and speech bubbles. I need my pages to work individually AND in a sequence. I need scenes to flow together well. I need the environment and characters to be consistent. I need a lot more planning.

6th Thought:
To do that much planning, I need to know ALL the details of the story. IE: I have to FINISH THE STORY!

...I guess I better do some writing...
