I am a LGBTQA Illustrator and cartoonist from the NY, NJ area. Much of my work is YA, consisting of very strong sassy female characters, sensitive males, and curious genderless characters, existing in an emotional and dramatic world. The comics I write mostly have LGBTA+ and Gender Identity, historical, or surreal subjects. I support all the angsty confused teens. My work is for you guys.
I now am a cartoonist for Geeks OUT! I write all sorts of fan fiction comics for them. It is a site where LGBTQA+ Comic and Anime fans get to read about Queer topics in movies, shows, and books. Also I have been Published by Pronto and ComicMix I also Recently was part of the SVA Alumni panel Let’s Talk Queer! A huge honor to be with fellow queer SVA graduates sharing our thoughts on the LGBTA+ art world.
I am mostly influenced by shoujo manga, anime trash, bad girls, scientific illustration, mermaids, and glitter. Those who are a fan of these topics I hope you enjoy what I throw into my work.
