About Mars Dorian
Mars Dorian is an online illustrator and indie sci-fi author.
After high school, he traveled the world and lived in countries such as Japan, the States, Australia and Mexico. Four years later, he returned home and created his illustration and blogging career. He worked with social media consultants, lawyers, startups and marketing blogs — the mission : to create outstanding artwork that helped his customers break through the clutter.
After three years of procrastination and lizard brain listening, he decided to release his sci-fi blog thriller.
He currently resides in Berlin, Germany.
