Rel is so awesome! That’s what her website is called too. Genius! I should have tried to fit the word awesome into my blog title. Anyway . . . if you want to find out why Rel is so awesome, keep reading.
Currently I write and draw a weekly webcomic called Witchery, etc. I also write a daily strip webcomic called School of World.
That’s really hard to say.. I feel like every new artist I take in influences my art just a little!
Probably Kate Bishop, I think! I think both the Hawkeyes are a lot of fun, but I find Kate to be particularly relatable.
I frequently attend conventions (on average about 10 per year), but I mostly stick to anime conventions or small press conventions. They yield very different crowds but either way it’s still an audience that I find approachable. Generally speaking I tend to avoid any convention that has “Comic” in its name… they tend to bring in an audience that just isn’t my target demographic.
From all over the place, to be honest. I find ideas an inspiration pretty easy to come by! The hard part is holding onto that inspiration, and putting in the hours to make that idea a reality.
When I’m stuck, I like to take a walk or a drive, usually while listening to music.. train rides are good, too. Moving out of my workspace usually helps to clear my head.
I can’t say that this is terribly interesting but there is an absolutely tremendous feeling that I get when someone picks up one of my books, starts leafing through it, and then starts laughing to themselves.. it’s a really good feeling, to be able to make people laugh!
Probably several years ago.. I dress up often for conventions, but seldom for Halloween!
