As usual it has been nonstop busy for me since Anime expo, had a table at Anijam, Sacanime summer, and Kraken con which all went wonderful. And thank you everyone who stopped by my table. 

I also somewhere in between I decided to try out something completely out of my element and tried submitting 6 original pieces into the art show of Convolution a fantasy sci fi convention. I busted my ass off making 6 new Original art pieces in between selling and prepping for anime cons. I really did not know what to expect with the Convolution crowd, or how my work would be received since my work really felt out of place with everyone else's. To my complete surprise when I went to pick up unsold pieces to find out I ended up selling four out of my 6 original pieces. I really left feeling speechless and with renewed confidence in my original work that I didn't know I needed.

I have one last show for the year Daisho con, I am already planning my schedule for next year and will definitely be looking into more gallery shows to submit original art into.

I've been drawing ever since I could remember. Never really considered being an artist until I saw the movie Beauty and the Beast, and a little push from a friend that I decided I wanted to be an animator.

Went to school and well tried both computer and 2d animation and well that didn't work out. I couldn't stand working on the same animation over and over, adding frames deleting frames just so it can move just right. Drove me insane I'm sure things have changed in animation since then, but honestly it just wasn't for me. Then I tried illustration and I found love in it, and it suited me just fine.

I mostly do greeting card designs, and love working from a live model. But lately I have been trying to expand my horizons and trying different genres and mediums.

I love anime, manga, and RPG video games (I love NIS strategical RPGS). I know my stuff is heavily influenced by it, either consciously or unconsciously I don't do it on purpose somethimes it just turns out that way.

A lot of what I draw here is inspired by either music random sketches I randomly did on a piece of paper the size of a reciept. But most likely are characters from my stories that I write on the side.

As of January 2010 I have began attending artist alleys at anime conventions. I am adding new things to my tables every con I attend. It's all fanart right now but I plan to add my personal art.
