My fav stuff to write or draw: pretty boys, pretty girls, animals, fantasy creatures, chibis and other cutesy things
What inspires me to make comics: The winning combination of writing, drawing, and storytelling. Comics are, for me, the perfect medium.
Why are you in the BHC: Accountability and community. Group projects are fun, too.
My artistic new years resolution: What else? Draw more! Specifically, I'd like to be building a better portfolio of work to show potential clients, as well as getting a solid start on my webcomic.
Favorite part of the artistic process: I love all of it, but I think I especially like holding a finished piece in my hand and saying, "I did this thing."
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw, all the way.
Astrological Sign: Aquarius
