Hi friend, let me tell you a tale,
...of aliens and adventures in far off places.

Let me tell you about, Zero-Drag, Murder-Mouth

Zero-Drag, Murder-Mouth: Alien Sharks and More is a creature design book that follows six alien scientists as they explore the wonders of a creature-filled universe.

You'll experience new worlds and new, never before seen, monsters from the eyes of each of these researchers. Hear tales of mystery and danger. See things both cute and horrible.

Every chapter starts off with the story of an alien scientist who's exploring life on a far-off planet. They will candidly tell the tales of their adventure first hand, always exploring creatures that are in some way connected, telling the story of predator and prey.

Meet Heldel

Heldel is the oldest of all the scientists and has seen some horrors in his life. He's working to help fix his home planet whose water sources have all been corrupted by a massive war. He's quiet and reserved, slow to make friends, but a good soul. He mostly lives on the campuses he teaches at.


He runs into trouble

When Heldel arrives on Datera to complete his studies, he never expects to meet this creature!

The Thysano wide-mouthed shark decides he looks like a tasty treat!

The Thysano wide-mouthed shark is a vicious predator that gulps down its prey. It can consume creatures that are almost the same size as itself.

But luck is on his side!

Luckily, Heldel is saved by the Ardeidanes! The Ardeidanes are peaceful wanderers of the waterways. They assisted Heldel in his journey and taught him the value, of slow, deliberate movements to avoid trouble much like...

The radiant swamp pig! 

Known for extreme laziness, the radiant swamp pig lounges in the warm shallow and munches on water plants. So committed they are to relaxation that they have developed brightly colored antennae to communicate with other members of its herd without having to move too much.

"Sarah’s creatures stretch the imagination and inspire wonder, and so much of their power comes from her perfect marriage of fantasy and biology. They’re worthy additions to the canon of great fantasy art."

-Brian Stillman,

"With boundless enthusiastic imagination equalled by an eye for accuracy and detail, Sarah’s creature designs inhabit a fictional world that could easily be real and the ecosystem of some alien planet.
And she wants you to see this ecosystem in all its glory!"

-Don Walsh

"Sarah has been making creature art for as long as I've known her -- almost 20 years! Not only does she produce amazing creatures, but she puts a great deal of thought and consideration into their features and poses to make them both natural and ready to jump into reality."
