I have always loved fantasy stories and games such as Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, and Pokémon. Often series like these hardly catered to people of color, especially those with darker skin complexions. People of color have fantasies of their own. We want to be the hero, we want to be the mage, we can be innocent and powerful. I make art because people like me deserve a fantasy of our own.
I always loved games like kingdom hearts and final fantasy, especially the character designs. I always wondered however why don't any of the characters look like me or even try? So Day was born from my idea to create a fantasy game that involved people with different hair textures to give us a chance at our own fantasy.
Day's design changed dramatically over the few years I have had him. From wearing a big overcoat sporting braids to being an island child without any real reason for his appearance. Eventually, as my story for the game developed, he would soon be done with clothing that catered to his story and the world of "Living Light."
