The last time I remember doing one of these was probably about fifteen years ago. Dating myself! But I feel like it’s time for the veil of mystery to be lifted and for my followers, new and old to get to know the real me. I would also like to add that if anyone ever has any questions about me, my Ask Box is always open!

What I Was Asked:


1. What type of music do you listen to? (Genre, artists, songs?)
All kinds of stuff. Probably mostly Motown, Popular Indie, Classic and 90s R&B

2. What cheers you up? Or makes you happy
Shopping or hanging out at a Starbucks with a friend. Usually the two go hand in hand.

3. Do you have a favorite book or read much? Why or why not?
I don’t read nearly as much as I would like. I’ve recently started listening to a lot of audiobooks because I can do that when I’m drawing and it helps me focus, but I tend to read in my free time and when I have free time I want to draw. That being said my favortie book is either probably “The Giver” by Lois Lowry or “Sex With Kings” by Eleanor Herman

4. What is the longest you have gone without sleep?
Probably a full day. I think one time I went four or five days with three hour spurts of sleep, but that’s nothing like not getting any sleep.

5. Do you have anyone you go to for advice? In person or online?
I have a few, trusted friends if I’m in need of wise council. In person… Or I guess texting? I know the people in person, but I text them.

6. What is the habit you are proudest of breaking or want to break?
Procrastinationnnnnnnn

7. What do you order or not order at a restaurant you have been to or never been to?
I will usually default to some sort of vegetarian option as a restaurant if I’m not sure.

8. Who is your hero? Why?
Oh gosh. Actual hero? The first person who comes to mind is Queen Elizabeth II because she keeps it real.
I’m also a huge fan of Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Madame C.J. Walker and Mary Elizabeth Bowser.

9. What is your favorite thing to spend money on?
Art supplies. Mostly sketchbooks, pencil cases, new pens. My pencil case collection is the envy of all who see it. And by envy I mean people usually say “why would any one person need that many pencil cases? You have a serious problem.” I interpret that as jealousy. 

10. What dead person would you least want to be haunted by?
Grigori Rasputin.

11. Your dream vacation?
Some place quiet with lots of museums nearby.

So the excitement from the latest in new Harry Potter material died down a month ago, but I wanted to draw this. 

I misremembered the details of Rita’s account, and only reread it when I was in the middle of coloring because I am a serious Illustrator, so Victoire isn’t sulking.

Bill is just like “can we do ONE nice thing that doesn’t involve the exchange of bodily fluids?!”

The Four Winds. August 2014.
Ever since there was talk about Jinora getting her airbending tattoos I’ve been thinking about Tenzin’s children and what they would be like as adults.
Also, Tenzin has four children. Two daughters, and two sons, conceivably each could run one of the Air Temples as the North and South were run by the monks and the East and West were run by the nuns.

Firelady Katara. August 2014. Pen & Ink, Photoshop CS6
Thanks to tumblr, I learned this week that Zuko and Katara could have been canon? While I don’t subscribe to the “Zutara” pairing myself (although in my head I secretly ship Zuko with everyone because he’s so lovable) I thought about what would have happened to Katara if she and Zuko did become a thing.
Assuming she married Zuko, she would have become the Firelady (or whatever the proper term for the wife of the Firelord is), and that prospect piqued my interest. Needless to say, that thought lead to this drawing of a fifty-or-so year-old Katara in her Firelady raiment. I tried to keep some Water Tribe elements in her costume (the crescent moon in her hair and the wavy could be flame could be wave pattern on her cowl). 
If I AM going all the way with this Zutara thing, I also think Zuko would have made her a betrothal necklace. I was going to do that in Fire Nation colors too but I think he would have kept it in the Water Tribe scheme so she always had a bit of home with her. 
I also gave her a nose ring because I do what I want.
