Welcome to Tharkis.com!

Welcome to Tharkis.com! This is my personal website, and as you can probably see, it's almost entierly a collection of photos from various events that I've attended. For the most part this page is all about my hobbies. I am an avid computer gamer, and hobby blacksmith and bladesmith, and I really enjoy old cars, with my focus on Triumph British sports cars.

About me

My name is Justin Mercier, although online most people tend to know me by the chat handle Tharkis. Why Tharkis? ...well Tharkis was the name of a D&D character which I had back in the early 1990s. When internet gaming was quite new I was playing shoot-em-up games like Quake Team Fortress and Doom2 death match, I had to pick a chat handle so I picked Tharkis and it has since stuck.

I will be continuing to try to keep this page updated with photos from all the events that I attend. I'm an avid shutterbug when I go to conventions and get-togethers, I'm not the best photographer, but my motto with photos is "accuracy by volume." If I take enough shots I'm bound to hit something... kind of like paintball!

Enjoy my website, and if you have suggestions or comments, feel free to contact me.
