I'm a book cover/interior illustrator/comic artist. I manage to pay bills and raise a family doing this--So I guess that means I'm adequate at it. There are a lot of things I'm still learning, but I grow every day, so this is a win, I believe.

Right now I am busy with oodles of work of varying kinds. So if I seem missing here sometimes, it's because I'm VERY stretched out over a lot of projects. I spend an easy 14 hours a day in studio. But I do love dA and so I try to be here as often as I can.

I'm not a spring chick. I have one child in high school and one in college. That says it all. But I'm pretty young at heart. I still love all the things I did when I was a a younger woman. (Wait a minute, that may just mean I never grew up....) I also have (in no particular order) loads of cool friends, a cockatiel, several cats, a very tall husband, some tropical fish, an iguana and far too many squirrels (in my yard. they're wild, even if they do beg for toast).

My favorite tool is my huge Wacom. It's been dropped, burned, covered in drink and sent off to be repaired, SO MANY times that the wacom people now laugh at me. My second most favorite tool is my custom PC which has so much RAM and Processor that I can do my digital arts at super light speed. I am suspecting it can time travel--Haven't tried that out yet. I also love Photoshop. (Though not CS4. CS4 was the ugly, smelly, unloved Adobe changeling child) I'm currently using CS5.

I listen to a wide variety of music, but my heart still lies in hard core scene. You can take the girl out of the goth, but you can't take the goth out of the girl. Additionally, I have several "closet loves" in terms of music. Stuff I take flack for liking. My Chemical Romance is at the top of that list. (Hush. I've already heard it all.)

I don't do social networking very well. Tumblr confuses me, Facebook annoys me and I forget I even have a Twitter account. But I am in all three places, so if you find me there I'll try to keep in touch.

That's about me in a nutshell... If there's anything else you'd like to know, PM me.

Whew! GenCon was super!

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 25, 2012, 10:20 PM

I've hit the ground running.

I'm back from GenCon and a visit to my family up north and today, in between trying to catch up to the MOUNTAIN of emails I have, I finished the inks for the final page of Sophie's 5 page comic commission for her DA2 Hawke and Fenris. This next week I start the colors.

I won't be traveling for a while now, thank goodness, and in between gigs, I will be doing more commissions. Melissa, yours is next!

GenCon was amazing. I met so many many of C.S.Marks' fans. And it was great. It was crazy busy, but there was a strangely nice rhythm to it that kept it from being quite too much. I met a ton of great authors out there too. (Hi Matt!) And I got a really good feel for the GenCon Artist's alley, something I want to try myself next year. So next year I'll hopefully be attending with my own table, launching (if all goes well) Hadrian.

Hugs to all...
