Who we are.
Lonely Cryptid Media was started by two nerds with a dream: to bring the world the best in queer, anti-racist, pro-feminist media. Using our skills in art, game-design, and writing we are dedicated to telling stories that expand the imagination, inspire creativity and kindness, build community, center hope and positivity, and provide the glorious opportunity to date mothman.
Our development team.
Lead artist and lead coder, April Autumn is a Queer artist and Pun Master Extraordinaire hailing (pun intended) from the chilly coast of Maine. She thoroughly enjoys comics of multiple forms, especially ones that deal with Queer themes, romance, magic and a Spooky yet lighthearted atmosphere. When she’s not drawing or coding for LCM, she can usually be found reading webcomics, playing board games, or watching Star Trek.
Dan Michael Fielding
Narrative designer Dan Michael Fielding is an author and sociologist from the frozen tundra of Minnesota. He has a soft spot for stories about found families, cryptids, and scientific achievement. His favorite author is Ursula K. Le Guin. When he’s not writing for Lonely Cryptid Media he can usually be found playing with his dog, Sam, or prowling the streets in the dead of night searching for his lost boyfriend, Mothman.
Our projects combine excellent storytelling elements, art, game design, and queer sensibilities with elements of horror, fantasy, and myth.
