What is Nomidia?

A samurai swears revenge on the Lord who killed her lover. The fate of the galaxy weighs on the shoulder's of a reluctant Queen. A treasure hunter scours the Wild West for the a divine relic. Nomidia encompasses all these stories and the broad spectrum of mediums through which these stories are told. Each layer and each story is independent while in

Our foremost effort is not only in telling stories, but telling them through the best platform to deliver them. Through digital illustrations, comics, photography,novels and video, Nomidia is a collection of animations, projects, movies and tales across a wide array of genres. From Wild West pulp series to a Sci-Fi Novel, Animated superhero shorts and High Fantasy comics.

We hope to blur the lines by the fiction and the audience. Suspension of disbelief is paramount in bringing our audience in to our world. By utilizing creative and engrossing methods to tell a story we aim to obliterate the fourth wall.

What is our Goal?


Our immediate goals are the following:

  • Publish a full length novel
  • Produce a weekly speed-painting livestream
  • Put out a hand crafted specially bound story book follow up to Oni
  • Create a regularly updated Nomidia webcomic

Nomidia's
only true goal is to deliver incredible characters, adventures and art work to our audience. Our supporters will help us create and publish art books, purchase equipment to produce animated shorts. As we reach our goals we will be able to devote more time to delivering content, collaborate with more talented artists, and purchase the art supplies and resources to create prints, novels, films and more.





What have we done?



Oni is a story book using a mix of classic ukiyo-e paintings and digital pop art tell a story of love, loss, and revenge in Sengoku Era Japan

This was the first full length story from Nomidia. Each book was hand made and sewn in the style of traditional Japanese binding. Along with the book, patrons also received original water color paintings depicting characters from the book.

Each book was designed and made to feel as if it was an artifact from within the story itself. When held in hand, the book feels like a treasure, as if the reader is a part of the tale themselves.
