Going analogue to create focus among digital distractions...
Quality = Focus x (Skill + Process + A bit of luck)
This is why the goal of iliaca is to help all kinds of creatives, artists and storytellers find focus in a world flooded by digital distractions.
The tools I sell here are tools created to help to improve focus either by removing distractions or by increasing clarity. What I'm sharing are tools I've used and that I've found helpful, sometimes slightly adapted to be as easy to learn and use as possible.

Doubt, that dreaded feeling that's often crippling you as a storyteller.
Using the "Hero's Journey Poster" together with sticky-notes to help structure your story will not guarantee that what you're making will become a success. What using the "Hero's Journey Poster" will do is to give you a better overview of your story and to help you criticize your work more objectively as to help you have more confidence in the quality of your story which allows you to write more freely without that doubt dragging you back.

visual storyteller, martialartist & creator of iliaca
I'm Peter Hertzberg, a visual storyteller and martial artist and a person who has struggled with my concentration and being able to focus during most of my life. Through spending a lot of time studying and trying out different methods and tools, I've learned to improve my focus and awareness. I started iliaca to share things I've learned so that hopefully it can help someone else as well.
You will not find "The Secret of Super Focus and Productivity of the Super Rich" or what ever here. There are no secrets and no magic bullets. What I'm sharing are tools I've used and that I've found helpful, sometimes adapted to be as easy to learn and use as possible. I believe that you can improve focus either by removing distractions or by increasing clarity. In iliaca we go analogue to help to create focus in a world of digital distractions by creating tools that help create focus in our work. because I believe that focus is our most valuable skill today. Because:
"Quality = Focus x (Skill + Process + A sprinkle of luck)"
Do I use all these tools myself all the time? No, I don't. I find that while one tool or strategy works well for one type of work it doesn't always work as well for others. That being said, I have used all the tools I'm selling here, and others, and I'm only sharing what I believe is helpful.
Curious about my other work?
I publish my comics and picture books through OMOiOMO and have my personal site HERE.
