About Me

Hi, Artistrophe here!

That’s Artistrophe, as in “catastrophe”, but with ARTitude.

Also known as Milumbe Haimbe, I am an artist and a storyteller.

I was born in Zambia, in the southern region of Africa, where I grew up on farmlands on the outskirts of the capital city, Lusaka. My earliest childhood memories are of roaming the vast savannah plains where I often imagined all sorts of mythological creatures lurking in secret places. Even back then, I was a big fan of science fiction, fantasy, and horror.

I will be the first to admit that I have an over-active imagination. But the great thing about being an artist as well as a storyteller is that I get to express my weird sci-fi, fantasy and horror stories, which I hope to share with you through my illustrations and blog.

Roll with me.
