"I have been developing what I decided to be a mascot in my mind, representing where we live at, the land we are occupying here, in the same breath a character that has some intricate backstory.
So what we have here is a sasquatch who still remains nameless along with his family members. It is part of a bigger story in my head that extends from an old idea about a motley crew of characters, which I'm not ready to leak out at the moment. I have a few stories that have been in development for the past few decades, but of course life has its was of distracting me from finishing it. I mean I have many other creative priorities that keep me consumed. Consider this HYPHA label a peek into my messed up world, one day I'll clean up my room in my mind's palace."
