About Me

This is my writing site and blog.

SheffPorthole
Writer and Artist

Free to pursue my own goals

Sheffield Abella spent his youth overseas in places like Japan and Guam as a military brat. He returned stateside for college. Sheff has spent the past several years as an artist and teacher. He went back to college to earn his Masters degree and was reminded once again of his love for the written word. He began writing again and Liz Crimson represents his first published effort.

Creative Writing

  • High Concept

Placeholder words to describe creative writing for people who don't know what creative writing is. Be sure to update this description later. Don't want anyone to think you don't know what creative writing is.

Illustration

  • Illustration
  • Digital Painting
  • Storyboards
  • Design

My BFA is in illustration, but I'm taking on fewer clients at the moment. I'd rather work on my own projects that have been on the sideline while I have been teaching and working in-house. It's likely you don't need this service, however, I believe being able to think visually is a pretty useful skill.

Working Process

I believe in systems over goals.

  • Conceive the Story

    Get Inspired/Get Triggered

    I like to take my idea as far as I can when the inspiration hits me. When properly motivated, it doesn’t feel like work.

  • Plotting

    I enjoy the process

    I believe in systems over goals.  I enjoy tweaking my processes and making them more efficient.

    02.
  • Writing

    Marathon or Sprint

    When I’m happy with my plot, I can race to the finish. But I like to work at a pace where I can savor the journey.

Video

Initially, I was going to make a specifically targeted YouTube Channel, but I decided to instead just start posting videos about the things that interest me. So it’s not going to be exclusively about Writing or Art.
