Did you put up the 90's anime op mix on 8tracks?? It's under your name, but you usually draw an image for your albums, so I wasn't sure

Ahahaha yes I did!! 90’s anime theme songs are unbelievably relevant to a project Toril and I am working on that is slowly taking over my life so I threw it together. For those curious you can listen to it here!

Hi, um. I'm kind of a comic artist? After seeing your comics and some of your ask responses I was wondering if you could answer a few questions for me? :T

Sure! I definitely am not an expert but I’ll always do my best to answer people’s questions about art, comics or anything! Though it helps to not ask anonymously, I do try to answer those too but I also try not to make my blog a wall of text haha. If you really want to ask me something anonymously, my sideblog is a good place!

you have SO MANY OCS and worlds/stories/canons. I really admire your ability to consistently come back to them and keep developing them over time despite how many burners you've got going :o u go girl

Ahhh thank you!! “Burner” is definitely a good word though haha, I am increasingly aware of the danger of “burning out”, so I do try to be particular now about picking up new stories/ocs! I feel bad that I haven’t had time lately to work on everything, but this year I am Learning About Priorities haha. But thanks! I hope to get to the more neglected casts soon, just gotta finish up some princesses!

Your recent Mami pic gave me a lot of confidence because I've always been really conscious of my calves because they're a bit on the larger/more muscular side but seeing you draw Mami more curvy made me really happy especially since she's my favorite! So thank you so much Katie ; o ;

Awww I’m so glad!! As much as I love magical girl anime I think their body types can be a bit…. monotonous haha. For some reason Mami just seemed to suit a curvier figure to me, I guess the corset? Anyway I’m really glad it helped you feel better! I always get so insanely happy about messages like these, everyone should get to feel awesome about their body!!

Your characters are so well rounded and diverse! How do you come up with these pure awesome characters? (And, more specifically, make them seem real in the world or universe they are in?)

Ahh I’m so glad you think that! I think it might help that I am a very very character oriented storyteller, so I almost never have to create a character to fill a role. Instead I’ll come up with a bunch of characters through doodling whatever I find fun and interesting at the time, let them develop through drawing, then find a way to smoosh them all together in the same story/universe haha. So in a sense, I guess I work backwards and make the world fit the characters? Which I hope helps makes it more natural feeling!

In terms of coming up with characters, I really like visual storytelling as much as possible. All my characters I try to come up with at least one thing that instantly gives you a clue or intrigue about their backstory. In terms of diversity, just…. be diverse? Haha I never know what to say to this, just draw more than one race/body type/gender identity? As long as you’re respectful you can’t really go wrong.

Since it was just announced at ECCC, I’m glad I can share a little bit of what I’ve been working on this year! I’ll be drawing an original series for Lionforge/ROAR comics called Crystal Cadets. It’s full of action, sparkles and cool diverse girls who kick butt. I’m pretty darn excited about it!!

Do mushroom monk (Freida?) and the Hand Merchant get along at all? I just really get this vibe that they could spend many an evening getting high in eachother's company.

oh my gosh YES they both think the other monks are way too serious/high strung and spend a lot of time getting blazed and talking smack about their way too stuck up peers haha. they also have an interest in herbs (real ones I mean) and other magical substances/objects as tools for spiritual enlightenment and discovery
