Teresa (Huddleston) Garcia
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I'm currently busy with studies and writing; I hope to be an online professor teaching Asian Studies, Asian Religion, Asian Mythology, or Asian History. My major is International Relations with an Asian concentration, and my specific areas of the most interest are Japan and the Ryukyu Islands.

I am a priestess in real life, so some people think my morals and mode of dress are stuffy. Too bad, I'm not changing, and since my mate doesn't have a problem with my strict morals and I delight in his I have even less of a reason to be bothered by people saying "you should loosen up."

Those that think so just haven't been allowed to see my softer sides.

I paint, I write, I love tai chi, I love to fan dance before the central kamidana of my home when I am well enough. Not a lot to know really, but more to find out than most people ever do.

Where you can find me:
THG StarDragon Publishing mainsite
THG StarDragon Publishing Blog
Twitter: AmehanaArashi

GoodReads (what am I reading? chat about it!)

Current Residence: a hidden mini-shrine in your average tiny rural town in the mountains
Favourite genre of music: Classical Asian or heavy metal.
Favourite photographer: Kevin Lahey (family friend), Athena Huddleston (my daughter), Vadise
Favourite style of art: meditative and spiritual
Operating System: Coffee IV, thanks
Shell of choice: >.> Dude... a Half-Shell... *wonders who'll catch the reference*
Skin of choice: Scales... but I'm stuck with this human stuff for the duration. lol
Favourite cartoon character: Nigihayami Kohakunushi!
Personal Quote: I am the flaming pearl and calm mirror at the heart of the storm. Hold me if you dare.

Journal History


Tama2 by AmehanaRainStarDrago

The first time I scanned this I was not too satisfied with how the color smoothing option scanned, so I rescanned in 48-bit. The 48 bit is this image, Tama2. Tama is the version with color smoothing. The curious can go to my patreon and check out an attachment here to see the color smoothing.…

This started as a doodle which I then showed Vadise, asking for some color suggestions. The rest happened when playing with crayons, watercolor pencils, a brush, and then color pencils. What I got I was satisfied with. The texturing that ended up happening I also felt added to the feel instead of detracting.

In part this would work as an acceptable illustration for my wisps poem. I might play around with night shadings to rework this at another time.

If you like my work and would like to help support it, please consider becoming a Patron at Patreon.

Haiku 1:
It is time to sit
beneath petals falling soft
watching life rush by.

Haiku 2:  
Pretty cherry tree
teasing the old janitor
with petals of love.
Two Starbound Haiku

I forgot to put these here the other day instead of just on the cherry tree picture from Starbound. Yes I liked that tree enough I started another character to go back for a picture. These are set below the cherry tree in the game intro before the Protectorate facility gets attacked by tentacle creatures.

You can help support my poetry and stories by visiting my Patreon page and telling your friends. Patrons get first look at videos and story content.

Animation: The Poe-Et's Nightmare (Animated Sky)
Now that most of the individual images are posted for anyone that might want them, here is the .gif that I'd made to animate the sky. This file was then slowed down and combined with my narration of "The Poe-Et's Nightmare" by H.P. Lovecraft. My Patreon Patrons get the first chance to see my videos, but when it goes public it will be at for viewing and listening, along with many other recordings.

This animation grew out of my illustration "The Stars of Earth" and if you are interested in any of the individual slides they are available for purchase if you find them in my gallery.
Angered Star God (Poe-Et's Nightmare step 5) by AmehanaRainStarDrago
Angered Star God (Poe-Et's Nightmare step 5)
There are more stars in this version than the original at amehanarainstardrago.deviantar… for a reason. I decided against a static image for a video I was making. So I decided to start making slides for an animation. This is for slide five. I've decided not to post the slide for four and six because the only difference is that the eyes are dimmer.

This image will be paired with a reading of H.P. Lovecraft's "Poe-t's Nightmare" and might possibly see reuse later with a story of my own. When the reading is posted I will update this with the link.

Do you like this image or the recordings of my readings? Perhaps you like when I write stories and poetry of my own? Did you know that you can help? Chat with me at my Patreon, follow to find out when I do livechats through a special discord server set aside for my art/literature usage, get some goodies, and of course help support my projects. 


Last night was a long night in which I shared my old fanfictions, or more accurately the link to them. It was a strange night and felt even stranger to open up about the stories that gave me back my confidence in my writing ability. It felt very odd to open up about my fanfiction since I concentrate so much now on my original fiction and my poetry when it comes to writing. I am really glad now though that I posted them to fanfiction back then, because they are still there and were written as gifts for my kids when they'd ask questions about what happens before and after Spirited Away. I have absolutely no idea what happened to the disk with the original files (and the uncut stuff for a couple stories and scenes which descriptions that I really liked but were unsuitable for ffnet.)…

This is also the anniversary of the first time my parents married each other. I believe it was today in 1974, if my math is right, since it took them 6 years to conceive me and successfully carry me to term (I wasn't the first pregnancy, but the first to survive). It's also the anniversary of the 1980 eruption of Mt St Helens, which strangely enough was the same year I was born (I was born in March, so I didn't do it!).

It is early for me so I can't recall the anniversary of their second marriage to each other, but it was summer so I think it was sometime in August. I don't feel like digging for the information right now.
